EDM Machine Has High-Column Design for Work on Large Molds
The VL600QH EDM unit from Sodick Inc. has a 500-mm Z-axis stroke to accommodate large work pieces.
Sodick, Inc. has unveiled a new high-column model wire EDM machine, the VL600QH. The VL600QH is Sodick’s latest addition to their VL range of versatile wire EDM machines. With a 500-mm Z-axis stroke, the new high-column model is designed to accommodate a wider variety of large workpieces. The unit is therefore suitable for large molds and for automotive and aerospace applications. Like other models in the VL series, the VL600QH offers an improvement to the Sodick SuperJet Automatic Wire Threader (AWT) “Pop-Up” search function. The upgraded AWT is suitable for unattended machining and improves the success of multi-hole threading and the threading of curved surfaces. The VL600QH also offers three-pass fine finish technology that has improved since the variation available on VZ series machines.
Like all Sodick EDM machines, the VL600QH comes with a 10-year positioning accuracy guarantee. This guarantee comes with no limitations on usage or maximum running hours and is made possible by Sodick’s maintenance-free, friction-free Rigid Linear Motor Drives.
