Main Features

More efficient and environmentally friendly finishing of thick plate workpieces.

- Wire Rotation Mechanism "i groove" -
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 "Stepcut" -
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).

High Precision Premium Specification, Pursuing Ultimate Accuracy

Sodick pursued ultra-high precision in the machining, assembly and adjustment of machinery. By adopting ultra-high precision roller guides, high rigidity was also achieved.
While standardly equipped with doors made of CFRP, the accuracy was thoroughly pursued in all factors originating in the machining accuracy to temperature control by a high quality inverter cooler.

ALC400P "i Groove Edition"

Smart Pulse & Smart Linear

Super-accurate Wire EDM

When Sodick set itself the task of improving on the performance and accuracy of its ALC-G series it took on a major challenge – these machines are already technical leaders, incorporating Sodick linear technology and digital Smart Pulse generators. But some sectors have requirements are even more demanding and Sodick was finding that an increasing number of customers were looking for super-high accuracy, for example a pitch accuracy of +/-1 micron – and every element of the ALC-P series has been developed to achieve these objectives.


Main Features

New Wire Rotation Mechanism

This newly developed technology, patented by Sodick, rotates the wire during the skim cut operation, so that workpieces are machined from top to bottom with the “unconsumed” surface of the wire.
Conventionally, wire electrodes are controlled solely by tension and running speed, while being constrained by a die. Sodick’s iGroove rotation mechanism provides additional control over the wire, resulting in increased surface quality and improved geometric accuracy, whilst at the same time minimising.

Machine Construction

The machine has a variety of standard built-in functions, including a new tension servo function, auto fluid-level control, and the new FJ-AWT (Automatic Wire Threader). Paying close attention
to the machine accessibility for work preparation in the field, a square-shaped work stand, ceramic stand base, 3-sided machining tank with automatic lifting door, quadruple filters and many
other features, all of which works to ensure improvements in productivity. Furthermore, by adopting a unique full-cover machine structure, comfort and safety in the work environment is not compromised.

Main Features

Five Core Technologies Developed In-House For Achieving The World's Highest Quality Machining

Starting with the development of electrical discharge circuits, Sodick has continued to make untiring efforts in the research and development of advanced EDMs. Sodick’s philosophy has been the pursuit of the highest level of accuracy, speed and versatility of machining in order to provide the highest quality products to its customers.
Sodick's: Power Supply Units, Discharge Units, Linear Motors, Motion Controllers and Fine Ceramic Components have evolved as its five core technologies. These developments have positioned Sodick at the pinnacle of EDM technologies.

NC Power Supply Unit + Discharge Unit

Sodick’s new VL wire EDM series features Sodick's latest ”LN2W series” power supply unit, which is capable of high-speed, high-precision and high-efficiency machining. The outstanding performance of the LN2W series power supply with 1Gb/sec communication technology “Perfect Active Control” making use of a modern in-house designed NC system running on Windows Operating System. The user interface benefits from a 15” colour screen for ease of use and operation.

Linear Motor

The most outstanding features of the Sodick in-house developed and manufactured Linear Motors are high-speed axis motion and quick response, which result from wear-free motion and without the need for old-fashioned ball screws. Conventional drive systems use ball screws to convert the rotational motion of the motor into the linear motion of the axis stroke, leading to the unavoidable deterioration in the response of high speed servo motors due to back-lash and mechanical lost motion. However linear motors directly provide motion to each axis without converting rotational motion of motor to linear movements.

Ceramic Components

The VL Wire EDM Series benefits from the use of ceramics in critical components such as the upper & lower guide assemblies and worktable supports. Ceramics have a low co-efficient of thermal expansion, light in weight, high in rigidity, resistant to aging and excellent electrical insulation properties, therefore an ideal material for a class leading Wire EDM Machine.

Linear Motor Drive /High Speed Wire-cut EDM

Precision parts machining for Medical, Aerospace and Cutting tools The most reliable linear motor driven Wire-cut EDM Improved surface finish supports variety of machining needs


Main Features

Five Core Technologies Developed In-House For Achieving The World's Highest Quality Machining

Starting with the development of electrical discharge circuits, Sodick has continued to make untiring efforts in the research and development of advanced EDMs. Sodick’s philosophy has been the pursuit of the highest level of accuracy, speed and versatility of machining in order to provide the highest quality products to its customers.
Sodick's: Power Supply Units, Discharge Units, Linear Motors, Motion Controllers and Fine Ceramic Components have evolved as its five core technologies. These developments have positioned Sodick at the pinnacle of EDM technologies.

NC Power Supply Unit + Discharge Unit

Sodick’s new VL wire EDM series features Sodick's latest ”LN2W series” power supply unit, which is capable of high-speed, high-precision and high-efficiency machining. The outstanding performance of the LN2W series power supply with 1Gb/sec communication technology “Perfect Active Control” making use of a modern in-house designed NC system running on Windows Operating System. The user interface benefits from a 15” colour screen for ease of use and operation.

Linear Motor

The most outstanding features of the Sodick in-house developed and manufactured Linear Motors are high-speed axis motion and quick response, which result from wear-free motion and without the need for old-fashioned ball screws. Conventional drive systems use ball screws to convert the rotational motion of the motor into the linear motion of the axis stroke, leading to the unavoidable deterioration in the response of high speed servo motors due to back-lash and mechanical lost motion. However linear motors directly provide motion to each axis without converting rotational motion of motor to linear movements.

Ceramic Components

The VL Wire EDM Series benefits from the use of ceramics in critical components such as the upper & lower guide assemblies and worktable supports. Ceramics have a low co-efficient of thermal expansion, light in weight, high in rigidity, resistant to aging and excellent electrical insulation properties, therefore an ideal material for a class leading Wire EDM Machine.
