ADVANCED LINEAR MOTOR DRIVEN TECHNOLOGY
All Sodick Wire EDMs use innovative linear motor driven capabilities and feature a 10-year warranty and Positioning Accuracy Guarantee.
Sodick, Inc. (Schaumburg, IL) will feature its latest innovative technology, new warranty programs, consumables and various contests and prizes at IMTS 2012 in Booth E-5102. Sodick will introduce its new “everything included” 7-year machine warranty program, SodickCare Premier, which includes many more benefits than a standard machine warranty and can be extended for up to seven years of full coverage.
Another new program is AfterCare, a one- or two-year used machine warranty that allows for a Sodick Linear Motor Driven used EDM to be under warranty for up to ten years. Stop by the Support Center in the booth to learn more about this unique program.
On display will be a multitude of machines that show a large variance in size and technology: Five Wire EDM models include the AP250L, VZ300L, AG400L, AG600LH and the AQ750LH. Three Sinker EDM models include the AD25L, AG60L and AG80L. Two high speed vertical mills include the HS650L and TT1-400A.
The AP250L is a Fine Wire EDM that maximizes cutting efficiency and is used to EDM small intricate precision parts that require a micro wire diameter. The AP250L will be demonstrating .001 in wire cutting in oil dielectric using Eco-Cut O Technology that enables the AP250L to cut 25 percent faster than previous oil models and 12 percent faster than water with a finer surface finish.
The VZ300L Wire EDM is a cost-friendly machine that achieves outstanding levels of accuracy and cutting speeds comparable to high end EDM models. The AG Series WEDMs are a precision machining solution that have the ideal combination of speed and accuracy. The AG400L is ideal for small to medium sized parts and molds that require close tolerances and fine surface finishes. The AG600LH features a 20 in Z-height, allowing a unique height for its size. It has an integrated A/B Table and will be displaying 6-axis machining.
The AQ750LH is from the AQ Series of large capacity and extreme taper Wire EDMs. It features a fixed table design which allows for a workpiece with greater weight to be machined without affecting the table positioning or workpiece accuracy. This machine will show a new software feature for gathering machine data, an ideal solution for the aerospace and die/mold industries. All Sodick Wire EDMs are Linear Motor Driven and feature a 10-year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee.
The AD25L is a compact, cost-friendly, high speed, small footprint linear motor Sinker EDM. Two of the AG Series Sinker EDMs will be displayed in the booth: The AG60L with a robot to show the ease of automation for this line of machines, and the large capacity AG80L linear motor EDM to show the high performance of these machines. The AG Series is ideal for medium to large sized aerospace, energy related parts, die/molds that require close tolerances, fine surface finishes and deep rib machining. The AG Series has a simplified control mechanism which provides a direct link between the drive and the control to ensure the fastest possible servo response time and optimal spark gaps at all times. These machines also feature linear motor drives and a 10-year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee.
The HS650L High Speed Mill includes a linear motor drive system, 40,000 rpm spindle. The HS Series is a highly rigid, robust machine capable of withstanding the rapid acceleration and deceleration generated by linear motors allowing for a wide range of high-quality finish, complex machining. The HS650L will demonstrate graphite and hard metal machining in the booth. The new TT1-400A has unique construction coupled together with linear motor drives and a 40,000 rpm spindle.
