Sodick Inc. has expanded its product line with a high-speed electrode machining center, the TT1-400A. Designed and built in Japan, the TT1-400A is ideal for the milling of graphite and copper electrodes with extreme precision. The unit was developed based on the advanced core technologies incorporated in the company’s highly renowned and successful HS Series, the copany states. The TT1-400A shares the same ultra precise motion control and linear motor drive platform that is utilized in the HS Series to achieve maximum speed and acceleration.
TT1-400A benefits from the advantages of linear motor drives, including; no ball screws, no backlash, no lost motion, increased cutting speed and no maintenance. The new LN3X controller, developed by Sodick America in San Jose, California, is designed to maximize the speed and acceleration of the Sodick linear motor drives, on the X, Y and Z axes and incorporates new features to simplify work set-up.
The TT1-400A has an X, Y, Z travel of 15.75” x 9.84” x 11.81” (400 x 250 x 300 mm), respectively. The maximum spindle RPM is 40,000 and the impressive maximum acceleration is 1.2G. Superior stability and the highest degree of precision, down to one micron, are the top attributes of this revolutionary new machine, the company adds. Other standard features of the TT1-400A include; Heidenhain Glass Scales, Blum Laser Tool Measurement, Integrated Torit Graphite Dust Collector, Air Purged Dust Protection, Oil Mist System with Mist Collector and an Integrated Part Probe.
