AP3L

Premium High End EDM Machine

Ultrahigh Rigidity Double-Column structure and Linear Motor drive Employing a New Power supply unit Enhances productivity in ultrafine and Ultraprecision Machining.



Direct-drive & Unique structure

The AP3L employs linear motors in achieving direct-drive with high speed and fast dynamic responsiveness that will not diminish over time. The unique gantry construction provides a low center-of-gravity which minimizes mechanical displacement caused by workpiece weight. The new small head also works to improve accuracy.

"Arc-less" machining

The new "Arc-less" EDM machining system is a new standard feature which greatly improves machining speed and accuracy, and also minimizes human errors In addition, the Super-SVC circuit reduces surface roughness variation, and makes high quality “pear-skin” or mirror-finish surface possible with ease.

Ecology & Energy saving

AP3L is environment friendly, recognizing the importance of energy conservation and material waste reduction in its design. Sodick has gone back to the drawing board to re-think and re-examine all machine components, and worked to accomplish significant reduction in the number of parts used for machine construction
