At Eastec in Booth 1206, Sodick will be featuring its linear technology in the Brooks Associates booth. The AG60L Sinker EDM features high speed and high acceleration linear motor drives, enabling an even and natural flushing condition that leads to perfect part accuracy. The AG60L can reduce EDMing time by as much as 50 percent, the company states. The menu-driven control automatically writes the NC code for the operator while inserting optimum cutting conditions. With its instantaneous responsive control and no flush technology, the AG60L makes what appears to be impossible, possible. The AG60L comes standard with Sodick’s 10-year positioning accuracy guarantee.

The VZ300L Linear Motor Driven Wire EDM is Sodick’s cost-friendly model. This entry level machine maintains the quality you expect when owning a Sodick and achieves outstanding levels of accuracy and cutting speeds, comparable to that of high end Sodick EDM models. The VZ300L includes Sodick’s revolutionary 10-year positioning accuracy guarantee.

The AG600LH Wire EDM is a high precision, high speed CNC machine with an additional Z height, giving it a unique height for its size. The AG Series Wire EDMs include direct drive linear motors with Heidenhain absolute glass scale feedback, an energy saving circuit to save on power consumption, motion controller to provide simultaneous axis movement, on-board user-friendly Heart NC cam system, a rise fall worktank and a 10-year positioning accuracy guarantee.
