ALC Series Features

  • X Y U V axis FLAT Linear Motors 
  • X Y U V axis absolute linear scales 10 nano (0,01 micron) Heidenhain.
  • Ceramic Work-Zone. Improvement in geometric accuracy by 3-4 times in comparison with metal-plastic working areas of non-Sodick EDMs.
    Sodick ceramics thermal expansion is merely 4.5×10-6/°С.

    Complete galvanic (electric) isolation of the Work-zone.
  • Hand scraped contacting bearing surfaces of meehanite cast iron parts
  • All bearing construction parts of low thermal expansion meehanite cast iron (11×10-6/°С)
  • Extra wide machine bed – superb horizontality at the extremes of travels 
  • THK SSR guideways (caged ball technology) designed for use primarily in precision measuring machines. The guideways can withstand movements 100 times more than the distance from the Earth to the Moon and back.

SPW CNC Power Supply 
New generation CNC Power Supply

New proprietary SMC “M4-LINK”  (developed by Sodick America Corporation, San Jose, California) replaced the more than successful K-SMC system.
Response time is shortened to 0.4~1.0 μs. The system now precisely corrects the position of a wire-electrode in the gap up to 1000 times per sec
