Linear Motor Drives Coupled with Glass Scales

Sodick’s AQ1200L Wire EDM features flat rigid linear motor drive technology; this guarantees machining accuracy since flat rigid linear motors never wear. Linear motors provide smooth, vibration-free table movement. Backlash is completely eliminated since there are no ball-screws or couplings. With the use of linear glass scales in the X, Y, U, and V axes, precision positioning accuracy with direct feedback is accomplished. This allows for unmatched straight and taper cutting accuracy. The longevity of this system is unmatched by anyone in the industry – and comes backed with a 10-Year Positioning Guarantee.

SMART Control Technology – LN2WH

The newly developed LN2WH power supply unit is featured on the AQ1200L Wire EDM and utilizes “Perfect Active Control” technology. It also uses 1 Gbit/sec serial communication technology featuring high-speed processing of the discharge control and motion control in a simultaneous process.


The AQ Series features energy-saving designs and technologies. Compared to conventional Wire EDMs, the Sodick Wire EDM Range can reduce average energy consumption by up to 60% by recycling unused discharge pulses that were not originally used in the discharge process.

Improved Operability

Included is a one-sided automated vertical sliding machining tank, a U-shaped workstand along with other features that increase workability during set-up. The ergonomic control pendant is on an adjustable mounting enabling all the work to be performed from the front of the machine.

10 Year Accuracy Positioning

At Sodick, we believe in our product. This is why we offer a 10-Year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee on our flat rigid linear motor driven Wire and Sinker EDMs. We guarantee that you will not lose any accuracy within the flat rigid linear motor drives. Learn more at

Thermal Commit (TH COM)

Through sensing, the temperature of each component of the machine is precisely corrected and the Thermal Commit (TH COM) function, which provides various diagnostic functions, minimizes thermal displacement due to temperature changes in the installation environment and during high-speed driving.


Sodick’s Linear Motor Driven Wire EDMs have no backlash and are vibration-free, this results in machining accuracy combined with a fine surface finish.
