The fastest cavity sinking EDM in terms of precision for workpieces up to 2000 kg

Sodick’s largest size Die sinker EDM machine in the range is the “AG80L”. It is suitable for cutting large work pieces in a very short space of time, thanks to the Sodick’s in-house fabricated technologies.

The series features linear drive technology and simplified control mechanisms, which provide a direct link between the drive and the control. This ensures the fastest possible servo response and optimal spark gaps at all times.

Product Descriptions

The AG80L Sinker EDM features Sodick’s Linear Motor Drives. Linear motor drives have been a perfect fit for CNC RAM EDMs (Electrical Discharge Machines). The linear motor’s fast 1,400”/min axis feed combined with high 1.2G acceleration creates its own natural and even flushing condition. The positioning accuracy of Sodick’s linear motors are guaranteed for 10 years on all Wire and Sinker EDMs.

The New LN Series power supply unit incorporates all functions necessary for high-speed, high-precision and high-efficiency EDMing. It incorporates a CF card for data storage to enhance reliability and to save energy. The ease of operation has been further enhanced with the newly designed operation and control panel, which provides touch-screen operation and LAN function. The LN professional automatic programming system offers a wide variety of machining shape patterns that can be used in various kinds of machining.

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

The AG Series EDMs feature the newly developed TMM3 electric discharge power supply unit. The TMM3 increases machining speed with cutting cemented carbide and other difficult to cut materials.
