Sodi-Tech EDM Ltd (www.sodi-techedm.co.uk
) — the sole UK distributor for Sodick solid-sink and wire-cut EDM machines and additive-manufacturing technology — will be highlighting the benefits of its linear-motor drive technology to the EDM process on stand M97
at Southern Manufacturing
Linear-motor drives have the advantage of moving the machine axis with no mechanical interface or coupling, so there is no lost motion and almost zero vibration; and due to there being no mechanical parts, these drives are virtually wear-free.
Acceleration rates are typically in the range 1-2g, which can be particularly advantageous for the EDM process.
Moreover, the drives are maintenance-free, and no lubrication is required.
