Product Descriptions

High-performance linear motors developed and manufactured by Sodick are adopted for the four XYUV axes. They can maintain accurate axis movement with no backlash semi-permanently, something that is impossible with conventional ball screw drive methods. The high response and high tracking performance that are features of linear motors achieve accurate position control and excellent discharge characteristics during machining.

The AL800P adopts a high rigidity construction supported by the ultra-precise roller guide as well as featuring a machining fluid circulation system for major structural components. In addition, a newly developed high-precision thermal compensation system and automatic temperature control by a high-performance inverter cooler minimize the thermal displacement during high-precision machining of large work pieces.

A variety of the latest technologies for highspeed, high-precision, and high-quality machining, such as Digital-PIKA-W Plus, TMP control II, Barrel-free Effect Control II, new tension servo function, and automatic float control are installed as standard to achieve stable high-efficiency machining with the minimum number of cuts. The horizontal 19-inch touch panel screen offers advanced operability and functionality.

At Sodick, we believe in our product. This is why we offer a 10-Year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee on our linear motor driven Wire and Sinker EDMs. We guarantee that you will not lose any accuracy within the linear motor drives. Learn more at 10 Year Guarantee
