Sodick has launched a seven-axis ‘turn and burn’ EDM die-sinking machine that controls the movement of a twisted electrode so that it penetrates the workpiece in a corkscrew-like motion.

These closed-channel forms reduce the loading on the blade walls, as well as reducing the wear on pump rotors and seals.

Sodick has worked closely with JauchSchmider in developing the Multiple Erosion Head, which has been publicly demonstrated for the first time at EMO 2009.

The combination of the JauchSchmider’s Multiple Erosion Head and the Sodick AG60L is used for the production of complex 3D cavities, as the Sodick multi-axis controller rotates and controls the movement of seven axes simultaneously.

The single setup operation increases productivity and reduces the possibility of human error.

The AG60L is part of the fifth generation of linear EDM solutions from Sodick, which includes a range of wire and sink machines.

The AG400L and AG600L wire models comprise of three-sided rise and fall tanks and four-sided enclosed worktables to provide ample set up space while being suitable for automation.

Other features include automatic dielectric level, enhanced anti-rust and anti-corrosive properties and upgraded performance through the incorporation of Sodick’s DSM (Dynamic Shape Master) system to increase cutting stability in stepped areas, pockets and through-holes.

The die-sinking range includes the AG40L, AG60L and AG80L, which incorporate an active control system that simultaneously performs discharge control and motion control through its high-speed communications controller.

The SGF2 generator provides up to twice the previous speed with graphite electrodes.

The die sinkers have been designed for ease of access and operation and automation, while dielectric filling and draining time has been much reduced to decrease setup time.
