High Speed Control LP33W- The Sodick LP33W power supply marks a breakthrough in wire EDM cutting speed while maintaining low operation costs. The 60 amp LP33W power supply has set a new world record using (affordable) standard .010 diameter brass wire. The new high peak, high frequency pulse wave developed by Sodick allows improved cutting performance even in the most difficult cutting conditions. Maximum cutting speeds are subject to work-piece material and thickness, cutting-flushing conditions and type and diameter of wire. The LP33W power supply is designed to achieve the maximum potential speed from each given situation to ensure the best productivity. Cutting speeds of over 45 inches an hour are achievable.




High Speed Automatic Wire-Threader (Super JET AWT)- A stainless steel pipe is used to guide the wire. As the wire passes through the tube, a high pressure water jet is introduced. A suction type wire transport system then transfers the wire to a bin. Wire diameter range is .004”~.012”. The optional HP-HT Circuit is recommended for .004” wire. The Sodick Auto Wire-Threader can complete a wire thread cycle in as little as 10 seconds.

Submerged Machining with 3 sided Drop tank

Some advantages to submerged Drop-tank machining are as follows:

  • Submerged machining capabilities greatly enhance the cutting performance in applications where poor flushing conditions exist.

  • Work pieces that are irregular in shape (having pockets, undercuts or through-holes), or that require taper angles, can now be easily and quickly machined.

  • Machining conditions on these types of parts are ideally stabilized, resulting in less wire breakage.

  • The work zone is thermally stabilized, thus achieving higher cutting accuracy.

  • Perfect design for automation

  • Faster set-up because the operator has easy access to the work-piece
