Sodick (Thailand)Co.,Ltd. has held the opening ceremony of their new factory in Pathumthani, Thailand on February 1st, 2013.

The new factory was built as a recovery from flood disaster in 2011 and also as a part of reorganization of entire Sodick Group’s production network.

With the latest equipment, the new factory generates higher productivity collaborating with the conventional Thai factory. Furthermore, it is located on higher ground level to eliminate the risk of flood.

Sodick has now the main production plants in Japan (Fukui and Kaga), China (Suzhou and Amoy) and Thailand (Thai factory and the new factory), which minimizes the geopolitical risk and enables to expand the production capacity in accordance with market demand.

Sodick Group continues to work establishing a flexible and strong production network which realizes stable delivery of products with the highest quality to customers worldwide.

Site area 59,200 m²
Floor area 8,700 m²
Operation started January 2013 (partly started since October 2012)
Line of business Manufacturing of parts & components for EDM and Injection machines/ assembly of Die-sinker EDMs
Target annual production volume total 2,000 units of EDM and Injection machine (consolidated with the conventional Thai factory)
Total Investment approx. THB520,000,000.-

Sodick “Goes Large” with all the latest technology at MACH 2020 – STAND 20-310

Sodick Europe, together with sole UK distributor Sodi-Tech EDM, is all set to “go large” at MACH this year, with its biggest-ever stand at the exhibition. Examples of the latest Sodick technology across a range of machining and production processes will be at the show, not only wire and sink EDM, but also high speed milling as well as horizontal injection moulding.
Seen for the first time anywhere, will be a prototype of the new 5-axis K4HL small hole drilling machine, developed specifically to meet the requirements of the aerospace industry to drill thousands of high precision holes in exotic materials for jet engine turbines.

RST Engineering doubles-up on Sodick AG60L die-sink EDM machines

Following a recent move to a facility more than twice the size of its previous premises, RST Engineering has invested in another Sodick AG60L die-sink EDM to help keep pace with a growing order book. Installed in February 2018 by Sodi-Tech EDM, the machine joins an existing AG60L that has performed impressively since 2012. The two machines are now working side-by-side producing a host of complex parts such as titanium internal gears and splines for the motorsport industry.

Sodick wire EDM provides 50% speed boost at rapid manufacturing specialist

Laser Prototypes Europe (LPE) is one of the UK and Ireland’s longest-standing specialists in rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing for a plethora of industries. Among its many services is DMLS (direct metal laser sintering) – the 3D printing of metal parts. The ability to print components with complex geometries in short cycle times is a huge competitve advantage for LPE and its customers. The DMLS process requires a lot of heat and energy to sinter the powder, which creates in-built stresses that can lead to distortion of the part. To counter this effect, heatsinks and anchors must be added to the component. After 3D printing, wire EDM is used as a finishing process to remove these and achieve final tolerance. Here, LPE has just added a second machine to its portfolio, a VL600QH from Sodi-Tech EDM, which is performing duties some 50% faster than the existing Sodick machine installed in 2017.
