Detailed Product Description

Linear Motor Drives

Sodick’s AG400L linear motor driven, high precision Wire EDM machine features new user-friendly EDM machining technology which further enhances productivity and EDM machining precision. The machine’s linear motor axes drives are coupled with glass scales on the X, Y, U and V axes which ensure precision cutting and positioning accuracy. Sodick’s X, Y, U and V linear motor drives have no backlash and are backed by Sodick’s 10-Year Positioning Guarantee.

SMART Control Technology – LN Series

The AG400L Windows XP based, high speed control comes standard with a large 15.1” LCD touch screen. Standard items; such as, the LAN network connection and a 1GB USB memory stick make it easy to transfer programming files. The 4 GB compact flash card memory eliminates hard drives which can crash resulting in lost data. In the event of power loss, the UPS system will automatically lock the axis drives. Once power is restored, the machine will automatically power itself up and resume cutting.

The Heart NC on-board, user-friendly programming software is beneficial for shops that are on a tight budget. Heart NC can program both 2 and 4 axes shapes and import CAD files. After programming, the user-friendly Condition Set Screen will automatically select the optimum cutting conditions and offsets from its internal database and add them to the NC program.


The AG Series features energy-saving designs and technologies. Compared to conventional EDM machines, the Sodick Wire EDM Range can reduce average energy consumption by up to 60%.

Fixed Jet High Speed Automatic Wire Threader

This new AWT system allows submerged and non-submerged threading.  Combining thermal wire cut for a straighter wire and new water-jet function, the reliability of the Sodick AWT system has been further improved.  The exclusive use of closed guides on the AG400L in combination with the FJ AWT further increases productivity.

3-Sided Rise/Fall Worktank

The 3-sided rise/fall worktank ensures a large set-up space and ergonomic accessibility. Since 3 sides slide down, the machine requires less operating space. The no-drip feature insures a clean shop floor, maintaining a safe work environment.

The fluid level is automatically adjusted according to the workpiece thickness and the operator can easily check machining progress even on thin workpieces because the slide tank can be stopped in intermediate positions while machining.
