Sodick’s (Schaumburg, IL) new AG40L, AG60L and AG80L linear motor driven CNC sinker EDMs feature no flush and zero electrode wear technology. The high axes speed and high acceleration of the AG Series linear drives creates its own natural flushing condition. The up-and-down motion of the electrode creates a pumping effect sweeping out the eroded particles, gas and tar from the spark gap. The machining result does not vary from an operator‘s experience and there is no need to machine flush holes into the electrode or to set up auxiliary flushing ports. The new SGF2 (Zero Electrode Wear Circuit) is standard on the AG Series sinker EDMs. This circuit allows the EDMing of steel materials with virtually zero electrode wear when using graphite or copper electrodes.
