Sodick’s Linear Motor Driven Wire EDMs have no backlash and are vibration-free, this results in machining accuracy combined with a fine surface finish.
Sodick’s AQ1500L Wire EDM features linear motor drive technology; this guarantees machining accuracy since linear motors never wear. Linear motors provide smooth, vibration-free table movement. Backlash is completely eliminated since there are no ball-screws or couplings. With the use of linear glass scales in the X, Y, U and V axes, precision positioning accuracy with direct feedback is accomplished. This allows for unmatched straight and taper cutting accuracy. The longevity of this system is unmatched by anyone in the industry – and comes backed with a 10-Year Positioning Guarantee.
The high-speed generating LN2WH Control uses a Windows platform. The system was designed to provide a user-friendly environment for the operator and still have the high-level functionality that is required in today's demanding world. The control is network capable, which will allow for NC sharing, remote monitoring and messaging via LAN (option). The LN2WH Control automatically generates cutting conditions, offsets, corner control settings, wire speed, wire tension and other data necessary for proper operation. This is especially helpful to novice EDM operators, since no prior knowledge of EDM is necessary to achieve excellent results.
The AQ Series features energy-saving designs and technologies. Compared to conventional Wire EDMs, the Sodick Wire EDM Range can reduce average energy consumption by up to 60% by recycling unused discharge pulses that were not originally used in the discharge process.
Sodick offers the world's first 10-year positioning accuracy guarantee due to the highly advanced linear motor technology. Sodick fully stands behind the quality and dependability of all its in-house developed technologies, and delivers the only 10-year positioning accuracy guarantee to be introduced.
