First in the world ! Wire Rotation Mechanism “i groove” Achieves high precision machining while suppressing the cumulative pitch error to the utmost in progressive press dies and superlative performance with in-house developed core technologies.
More efficient and environmentally friendly finishing of thick plate
Applying rotation to the wire during finishing reduces wire consumption and allows a new wire surface to be constantly used for finishing from the top to the bottom of the workpiece.
This is especially suited to finishing thick plate workpieces. It offers innovative machining performance including stable machining dimensions, improvement of surface scoring, and reduced wire consumption.
New groove and step machining function “Step-cut”
It permits machining at the same speed as under standard conditions while significantly improving the accuracy and range of applications when machining shapes with rapidly changing material thickness, such as stepped shapes.
Latest Electrical Discharge Technology for Rapid and Accurate Machining
Sodick has been working for many years to develop the world’s best wire-cut electric discharge machines. The AL Series “i Groove Edition” offers flexible control from high peak currents for efficient rough machining to ultra-fine discharge pulses for micro finishing.
In addition, The Sodick linear motor drive is a non-contact system that eliminates the need for ball screws. It is maintenance-free and maintains its initial accuracy almost indefinitely, with no drop off in machine accuracy due to ball screw wear throughout the life of the machine (10 years or more).
All models in the series are equipped as standard with the AIM (AI Maintenance) environmental temperature diagnosis function and TH COM thermal displacement correction function that can handle everything from high-accuracy to rough temperature environments, in addition to a logging function and temperature display of the machine surroundings.
In addition, the full-cover specification machine features a temperature equalization system to provide a more stable machining environment.
