of the Space Age
i-Groove = Wire Rotation Mechanism - First in the World ! New Precision & Up to 35% savings of wire with finish cuts!
- Flat (Planar) Linear Servo Drives.
Sodick is the world’s first (since 1998) and the only manufacturer of electric discharge machines (EDMs) with hi-power and robust flat (planer) linear motors (LM).
Until the present time, the only manufacturer of die-sinker EDMs with linear motors in the world.
- Ceramic work zone.
The world’s only creator and manufacturer of EDMs with a thermally stable ceramic working zone built with in-house FineXCera® ceramics with ultra-low thermal expansion = 4.5 x 10-6/°C, which is 3-4 times less than that of steels!
Complete electrical isolation of the EDM work zone, the workpiece and the electrode from the rest of the machine structure.
- Hand scraping. Machine-tool longevity. Long lasting precision.
One of the few in the world manufacturers of EDMs, at the factories of which all bearing surfaces of Meehanite cast-iron structures of all machine-tools are hand-scraped after milling instead of cheaper but inappropriate polishing.
- 10 year positioning accuracy guarantee. Backed by 20+ years of experience.
- The largest number of patents in the industry.
A pioneer and recognized leader of new technologies in EDMing and machine-tool manufacturing, including nanotechnologies.
Annual Production at the Sodick’s plants in Japan, Thailand and China
exceeds 4,000 unique machines
