The fastest cavity sinking EDM in terms of precision for workpieces up to 2000 kg

Sodick’s largest size Die sinker EDM machine in the range is the “AG80L”. It is suitable for cutting large work pieces in a very short space of time, thanks to the Sodick’s in-house fabricated technologies.

The series features linear drive technology and simplified control mechanisms, which provide a direct link between the drive and the control. This ensures the fastest possible servo response and optimal spark gaps at all times.
