"Large Work/Extreme Taper"

The AQ1200L Linear Motor Driven Wire EDM is Sodick's largest Wire EDM and features a direct-drive, frictionless, vibration-free mechanism that features unrivaled acceleration and positioning accuracy with no backlash.  The AQ1200L features glass scale feedback providing true machine positioning at all times.  The scales are mounted on the moving axes; this enables them to consistently measure machine accuracy.  Glass scale feedback, coupled with linear motors, guarantees machining accuracy.

With Sodick's new LP Control you can import Parasolid (solid models) files directly into the control. This unique feature maximizes the cutting efficiency, reduces the workflow and reduces programming errors.

 The environmentally friendly recycle circuit saves on energy cost by recycling usused discharge pulses that were not originally used in the discharge process. The electrolysis-free circuit eliminates oxidation and improves part straightness.

The AQ1200L is suitable for larger parts in industries; such as, automotive, aerospace and energy. The AQ1200L can accomodate a workpiece up to 62.9" x 47.2" 15.7"  and has a maximum workpiece weight of 8,819 lbs.
