The VL400Q Wire EDM features Sodick’s Linear Motor Technology. The VL Series is an advanced line of performance Wire EDMs that builds on the technologies of the SL series. The medium sized VL400Q is well-suited for a wide range of machining applications.
Linear Motor Drives with Glass Scale Feedback
Sodick’s VL400Q linear motor driven, precision Wire EDM features new user-friendly EDMing technology which further enhances productivity and EDMing precision. The machine’s linear motor axes drives are coupled with glass scales on the X, Y, U and V axes which ensure precision cutting and positioning accuracy. Sodick’s X, Y, U and V linear motor drives have no backlash and are backed by Sodick’s 10-Year positioning accuracy guarantee.
SMART Control Technology – LN2W
The VL400Qs Windows XP based, ergonomically friendly, high speed control comes standard with a large 15.1” LCD touch screen. Standard items; such as, the LAN network connection and a 1GB USB memory stick make it easy to transfer programming files. The 4 GB compact flash card memory eliminates hard drives which can crash resulting in lost data.
The Heart NC on-board, user-friendly programming software is beneficial for shops that are on a tight budget. Heart NC can program both 2 and 4 axes shapes and import CAD files.
The VL Series Wire EDMs feature energy-saving designs and technologies. Compared to conventional Electrical Discharge Machines, the Sodick WEDM Range can reduce average energy consumption by up to 60%.
The VL400Q Wire EDM features a large capacity worktank that includes a vertical access door for ergonomic accessibility. Since the door slides down, the machine requires less operating space. The no-drip feature insures a clean shop floor, maintaining a safe work environment.
