Schaumburg, Illinois – Sodick Inc. is proud to announce its alliance with Phillips Corporation, Federal Division, to provide cutting edge EDM machines, high-speed milling, and additive manufacturing to the United States Federal Government.

Together, Sodick and Phillips Federal can provide long-term benefits to their Federal clients by providing the latest technology that ensures long term performance and accuracy. With options to include indexing tables and the capability to cut advanced materials such as titanium with ease, Sodick is the right choice to produce critical components at high speeds.

Since rigid linear motors are a direct electronic drive (no mechanical parts), they eliminate problems with backlash and wear.

Rigid linear drives contain the same raw components as a servo motor (magnets & copper coils), but uncoils the motor itself and mounts it directly into the machine castings. As amperage enters the coils, it creates a force that is repelled against the magnets. This direct electromagnetism is the driving force, eliminating the need for indirect servo systems, such as ball screws.

Currently, these EDMs are being used to manufacture and repair of turbine disks, shroud segments, turbine blades, and turbine nozzle vane segments in the aerospace industry. With extreme precision in all sizes, from small parts to large workpieces, Sodick machine tools are the first choice for leaders in the Aerospace industry.

“From our initial meeting, it was clear that Sodick Inc. and Phillips Federal shared the same business principles in providing the latest state-of-the-art technology. This commitment, along with our shared dedication to maintaining the highest level of business ethics and superior level of customer support, made us a perfect match.” – Dave Thomas, Executive Vice President.
