Sodick's high-speed linear machining centre.

As a pioneer in the use of highly dynamic linear drives in machine tools, and based on years of experience with over 10,000 linear EDM machines, Sodick is presenting a new generation of high-speed linear machining centres with linear drives in all axes – the HS L series

High acceleration rates > 1G, maximum stability and the highest degree of precision down to the nano realm are the top attributes of this innovation, which heralds a new era in milling tools. Not least because the handling of the machine is extremely easy and safe, thanks to the Windows-based CNC controller combined with Sodick Motion Control software.

Unlike the conventional method of separately executed rough and fine milling, this new technology combines both these machining passes in the one operating mode. The solution is a rapidly rotating and traversing tool of small diameter that cuts to fine depths.

Fine depth milling

Small diameter cutting tools are ideal for minimising the cusp (residual surface roughness after cutting) and therefore milling resistance. The result is enhanced dimensional accuracy, surface finish, and tool life.

High Speed Milling

High-speed milling shortens cycle times and therefore the whole machining period. Other advantages are improved surface qualities, multi-purpose tools, and minimising chip sizes for ease of disposal. In addition, this technology does not require coolant, so dry (semi-dry) machining is also possible.
