Having introduced linear EDM at the EMO show in Paris in 1999, Sodick Co. Ltd (Japan) have just announced that over 31,000 Linear Machines have now been delivered to customers.
This extraordinary achievement has been made possible by the exceptional performance of Linear EDM Machines.

Having developed the Linear Drive System in house Sodick continued to improve the performance and now fits the 5th generation of Linear Drives to the machines.
