EDMs Increase Machining Stability, Accuracy
Sodick offers the AD30L sinker EDM and the AQ400L wire EDM.
EDM Brings Capacity, Capability to New Heights
A wire EDM’s increased Z-axis capacity enabled this shop to take on larger parts.
Wire EDM Built for Rigidity
The AQ400L wire EDM from Sodick features X-, Y- and Z-axis travel of 15.75” x 11.81” x 9.84” and ceramic components that increase machine rigidity.
Sodick Launches New Warranty Program
EDM manufacturer Sodick (Schaumburg, Illinois) has launched a new 7-year warranty program for new machines. Upon purchasing a machine, customers can opt for SodickCare Premier 3 or SodickCare Premier 5, which expand the standard warranty to 3 or 5 years, respectively.
Sinker EDM Features Simplified Control Mechanism
Sodick’s eco-friendly AG100L sinker EDM features a simplified control mechanism that provides a direct link between the drive and the control.
Sodick Opens California Tech Center
Sodick (Schaumburg, Illinois) recently opened a new technical and training center in Yorba Linda, California.
High Speed Wire and Sinker EDM
The AG40L sinker EDM with linear motor drives offers high speed and high acceleration, which is said to enable an even and natural flushing condition for high part accuracy.
Sodick Names Territory Sales Manager for North Midwest
EDM supplier Sodick has named Joel Manns territory sales manager for the North Midwest Region, which includes Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and border counties of Wisconsin.
Linear-Motor Wire EDMs
The AG400L and AG600L CNC wire EDMs includes direct-drive linear motors with Heidenhain glass scales for accurate positioning feedback..
Sinker EDM Features Compact Size
Sodick introduces the C32 CNC sinker EDM, featuring a compact design that fits into a 3. 5 ft. × 5.
CAD Input For EDM
This software runs on the wire and ram (die sinking) versions of the company's "LQ" Windows XP-based control unit. The software provides a special interface that allows the user to input 3D solid model geometry directly from the CAD system to use as input to the EDM control unit. Using CAD data as direct machine tool input has long been a dream that developers of other types of machine tools are now closing in on.
Reaching New Depths And Greater Accuracy
Just when you thought high speed machining or hard milling would steal the best applications from ram-type electrical discharge machines, linear motor technology is taking "sinker EDM" to levels unattainable with any other metal removal process.
Linear Motor Brings Accuracy to EDMing of Deep Ribs
A ram electrical discharge machine may not be the place most observers would expect to see a high-speed linear motor. Linear motors seem more appropriate for the axis drives of milling machines, where high feed rates complement high spindle speeds in high performance machining. But high performance is a goal for EDM builders as well.
Wire, Ram And Small Hole Driller Help Build Specialty Injection Molds
The ram EDM runs unattended day and night, allowing the operators to perform other tasks. The ram has cut graphite costs nearly 50 percent, requiring fewer electrodes than its older equipment.
EDM Market Dictates New Machine's Features
Japanese EDM builder Sodick is introducing a new wire EDM model to the U.S. market at this year's Westec show in March, 1998.
Wire EDM In The Extreme
Cutting metal with an energized strand of wire is still one of the most dynamic frontiers in metalworking, and this shop goes to extremes to keep up with the latest advances. It has even developed some of its own.
Wired For Productivity
This shop successfully mixes high volume production jobs with prototype work by concentrating on high performance wire EDM.
