Detailed Product Description
Linear Motor Drives with Glass Scale Feedback
Sodick’s VZ500LH linear motor driven, precision Wire EDM features new user-friendly EDMing technology which further enhances productivity and EDMing 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 accuracy guarantee.
SMART Control Technology – LN2W
The VZ500LHs Windows XP based, ergonomically friendly, 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.
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.
The VZ Series Wire EDMs feature energy-saving designs and technologies. Compared to conventional Electrical Discharge Machines, the Sodick WEDM Range can reduce average energy consumption by up to 60%.
The VZ500LH Wire EDM features a large capacity worktank that includes a vertical access door for ergonomic accessibility. Since the door slides down, the machine requires less operating space. The no-drip feature insures a clean shop floor, maintaining a safe work environment.
