Sinker EDM accommodates workpieces up to 220 lb.
August 8, 2011 -
With X/Y/Z travel of 11.81 x 7.87 x 5.91 in., AD25L features linear motor-driven Z-axis that completely eliminates backlash. Sodick High Speed Finish Circuit controls discharge voltage of each pulse to ensure optimal high-grade texture or mirror surface finish in short period of time. Zero Electrode Wear Technology allows EDMing of steel materials with virtually zero electrode wear when using graphite or copper electrodes.

Sodick Releases AD25L - a Cost-Friendly Sinker EDM
Sodick, Inc., a manufacturer of EDM technology, is releasing the AD25L Sinker EDM. The AD25L Sinker EDM has a small footprint and can machine at high speeds.
The highly compact AD25L provides improved machining accuracy and speeds due to the incorporation of the Sodick High Speed Finish Circuit (SVC). SVC controls the discharge voltage of each pulse to ensure surface finish. Surface finish can be uniformly and efficiently controlled to provide a high-grade texture or mirror surface in a very short period of time. The AD25L also features Zero Electrode Wear Technology; this technology allows the EDMing of steel materials with virtually zero electrode wear when using graphite or copper electrodes. The AD25L has an X, Y, and Z travel of 11.81" (300 mm) x 7.87" (200 mm) x 5.91" (150 mm) and can accommodate workpieces up to 220 lbs (100 kg). The AD25L is Sodick's cost-friendly Sinker EDM.
The AD25L can reduce EDMing time by up to 50% over conventional EDMs. Since the AD25L has a Z-Axis which is linear motor driven, there are no ball screws or couplings and backlash is completely eliminated.
Sodick Inc., established in 1976, has sold over 50,000 EDMs worldwide and has had over 25,000 linear motor EDM deliveries. Sodick machines are used for the production of dies and molds and other various applications that cannot be produced by standard machining methods. Sodick has three ISO certified manufacturing facilities with over 3,100 employees worldwide and technical centers located in Chicago, New Jersey and California.
