Sodick’s AG200L is its largest sinker EDM at nearly 10 ft. wide with a worktank 15 percent larger than the AQ20L. The AG200L is designed for simplified operability so that users of the smaller AG100L and AG80L models can more easily add the AG200L to their capabilities.

The AG200L’s rigid cast iron construction improves stability and reduces deflection with heavy workpieces. As a large-size sinker EDM with linear motor drives, the AG200L is well-suited for burning high-precision features such as ribs and subgates into large molds, the company says.

Standard AG200L specifications include a worktank size of 118" × 70.8" × 37.4” and X-, Y- and Z-axis travels measuring 78.7" × 47.2" × 31.5”. All axes are driven by Sodick’s rigid linear motors with glass scale positioning feedback.


  • Angled Holes And Slot EDM Drilling

    HoleMaster Hole Driller EDM machines are now available with fourth- and fifth-axis capabilities. An optional compound rotary table provides precise A- and B-axis positioning, extending the capabilities of these machines to the submerged or unsubmerged EDM drilling of angled holes and slots. Typical applications include cooling and/or exhaust gas holes in turbine rings and blades; medical prosthetics and instruments; electronic housings and components; laboratory and analytical equipment; optical instrumentation; and extrusion dies for glass and composite fibers.

  • CNC Rotary Table Indexer For EDM Applications

    The JNC140-EDM CNC rotary table indexer contains a sealing system that is adaptable for use in submersible applications with EDM dielectric fluids. The sealing system is combined with the Auto Air Purging System that removes any possible condensation accumulation inside the indexer housing. The indexer weighs 27 kg and has a stainless steel face plate with a diameter of 140 mm and a center height of 110 mm.

  • EDM Drill Solves Oil Passage Problem

    This manufacturer was having a problem machining a 0.025-inch diameter oil feed hole at an angle in a hardened steel component called the Bronson Roller. The 30-degree angle of entry and the hardened condition of the roller body made it a difficult task for conventional drilling. The part was one of a family of parts that vary in OD and oil hole angle of entry.
