Automation of a Sodick Wire EDM machine
"In wire discharge machining, when a large number of work pieces are being processed, continuous machining is possible by setting as large a number of work pieces as possible beforehand on the machining table. However, in this case the NC program that is created becomes complicated, and the work piece setup also requires a long work time.
Automation of work piece transport enables optimum work piece space utilization, a drastic shortening of setup time on the machine, and improved machine operating rate."
