Sodick iGroove Wire EDMs
High Accuracy, Minimal Wire Consumption.
With our new wire rotation technology, iGroove, Sodick’s ALN and ALP Wire EDM Series’ maximize cutting performance and part accuracy while minimizing wire consumption. Combining our rigid linear motors, our most advanced generator, and a more responsive, user-optimized control, the iGroove Series provides the finest finishes possible.
With the ALN’s 2D Automatic Programming Support function, Heart NC, you can create machining and mold shapes easier than ever. There are options for involute gears, coreless shapes, and free-form curves to make sure your product is designed exactly as you intended. With IntelligentQ3vic, 3D solid models can be imported directly, allowing the operator to establish a consistent and highly efficient manufacturing flow by automatically extracting machining contours from a solid model. With these functions, the ALN iGroove is ideal for mold making and other high accuracy parts.
Since the release of the iGroove series in Q4 of 2021 initial results have shown increases in accuracy, surface finish and wire savings of up to 39%. It has been found that this machine lineup is especially suited for thick workpieces (60mm or greater). Workpieces with varying thicknesses as well as workpieces that require multiple passes benefit from this technology the most. However, improvements are seen on less complex workpieces when compared to previous models.

Next-Generation Sinker EDM.
Combining the power of discharge control technology with rigid linear motor control and the latest artificial intelligence, the ALG Die-Sinker EDM Series provides stable machining for every product, every time. With improved performance and faster machining speeds, you can rely on the ALG Series for even the most demanding projects.
When it comes to making accurate and high-quality molds, the ALG Series utilizes the newly-developed SP Power Supply to double motor response speed, improving the quality and speed across the entire discharge machining range. These machines also incorporate the Arc-less 4 circuit to greatly reduce electrode wear, improving speed and surface finish.
With the ever-growing demand for automation in job shops Sodick’s ALG sinker series was designed to fit a wide range of automation needs. The ALG series is equipped with a three-sided automatic vertical machining tank controlled fully automatically and has a high affinity with workpiece / electrode replacement systems using automatic electrode changers or robots, allowing continuous automatic operation with high-precision and high-speed machining.
