Sodick's unique electrode changer, electrode feeder and automatic guide change design allows for extended unattended machiningClick image to enlargeSodick’s five axis K4HL CNC small hole drilling machine conquers applications that require high speed drilling thousands of small, high precision holes.

The unique electrode changer, electrode feeder and automatic guide change design allows for extended unattended machining of even the most intricate of parts.

Its compact design with clear work table access works with a fully-automated loading system or manual loading. For the aerospace industry, full 3 axis contouring or orbiting is included for the machining of small, high-precision diffuser holes often found in jet engine blades and vanes.

Sodick’s rigid linear motor drives are standard to ensure the highest level of accuracy, performance and longevity.
