Sodick Spring Success Across Europe

Sodick Distributors in Poland, Spain and UK have been successfully promoting Sodick Products at their national Exhibitions, all of which were well supported by exhibitors and visitors. Despite the current economic problems, many visiting companies expressed their intention to make machinery investments.

Sodick’s Polish distributor Soditronik exhibited at the recent Mac-Tool Exhibition in Poznan the Sodick AQ600L LN2W compact WEDM for the first time, and the machine is already proving to be a success in Poland with a number of local installations since its introduction earlier this year.

Our Local Spanish dealer Precimaq took part at the recent BIEMH 2012 Exhibition in Bilbao.
Precimaq presented the Sodick AG600L LN2W Linear WEDM on the stand of the parent company the Delteco Grupo. The AG600L attracted considerable interest from the Spanish EDM Clientele, impressed by the high levels of technology and quality available together with an outstanding Price/Specification ratio. This interest was endorsed by a number of customers making the decision to progress to Sodick Linear Drive Technology.

The UK exclusive distributor Sodi-Tech EDM Ltd, exhibited 4 Sodick machines at the recent successful MACH Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham with over 30,000 visitors attending over the five day exhibition. Sodi-Tech EDM Ltd was delighted with the results, with a number of orders being secured during the exhibition and many new customers project discussed. Sodick’s market share continues to grow throughout Europe and few more strongly than the UK and Ireland, which is benefitting from a resurgent manufacturing sector. Sodick’s UK Distributor is perfectly positioned to support the demands of the manufacturing sector with a potent combination of Sodick’s renowned reputation Innovation and Technology and Sodi-Tech EDM knowledge built up over 20 years focussed on the Sales and Support of Sodick Products.

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.
