The Sodick five-axis K4HL CNC small hole-drilling machine is recommended for applications that require the high-speed drilling of thousands of small, high-precision holes, often found in the aerospace, medical and electronics industries.
Its electrode changer, electrode feeder and automatic guide change design is said to enable extended, unattended machining of even the most intricate of parts. The K4HL’s compact design with clear work table access is compatible with a fully automated loading system or the manual loading of workpieces. For the aerospace industry, full three-axis contouring or orbiting is included. Overall, the company says its rigid linear motor drives will ensure precision and repeatability.
