    EDM Wire

    We use the Thermo SD wire from Sodick. Its great wire. We have no issues with threading tall parts and start holes down to .020" dia. It can handle up to 25 deg taper. Its clean with no zinc residue and we can really bump up the power with it. We have noticed about a 20-25% increase on burn...

    Dedicated User

    Six operators for one machine??? Most of the setting you mentioned really shouldn't even be played around with. Unless you have a steep 4 axis or tapered part wire tension shouldn't be adjusted. About the only thing an operator should mess with is EPA. All other settings are done in the...

    Sodick Wire cut VL400Q

    I can send you a a PDF with instructions on how to set up your Siekanet. You'll have to PM me your email. As for the tank drain at a M00 use a string file so the machine also reads T83 and a M00.

    Difficulty in obtaining Georg Fisher/Charmilles PM

    I think most manufactures are having a really tough time finding service techs. It takes a lot of training and most don't last long due to all the travel.

    Sodick L cut wire chopper

    These wire choppers seem to have a mind of their own. Our AG has 28000 hours on it and still using the same cutters. The choppers don't last long at all on our ALN's. We tried wiring out our own but just didn't work. They just crimped the wire. Needless to say, our wire choppers for the ALN's...

    lol... the machine was installed 3 weeks ago. Super nice machine as well. Being able to load a dxf with all the start hole locations is great.

    Excessive/quick wear on Sodick C guide

    As jz said make sure the larger opening is at the top. These need to be rotated 90 deg every 500 hours and replaced every 2000. Your thread pipe may be slightly bent as well causing the wire to rub the guide during threading. Also, make sure your heads haven't moved. Hold an indicator on your...
