Wall Colmonoy Limited (UK) is pleased to announce it has acquired a new state-of-the-art Sodick ALC800G Electro Discharge Machine (EDM) “Wire machine” for its UK machine shop. The new wire EDM machine was purchased to increase capacity, improve cycle times, achieve tighter tolerances and improved surface finishes for its precision cast machined components.

The Sodick ALC800G Wire EDM machine is cutting-edge technology. With the latest digital innovations in generator technologies and the use of advanced electrode materials innovations, it achieves faster speeds, greater precision, and improved accuracy with a larger Z Height of 800mm and surface finish for our precision cast machined components.

This capability will support many industries such as food, pump & valves, steel, oil & gas, and rubber to cut such cast components like bushes, gears, pump bodies, pump plates, transfer screws and more.
