Medical devices require some of the most demanding machining applications available. Sodick machines achieve the highest accuracy and hold the highest tolerances, making Sodick machines perfect for this industry. More importantly, though, Sodick machines are substantially more reliable than the competition. Due to mechanical wear on traditional ballscrew machines, competitor drive systems gradually lose accuracy over time, meaning that a tight tolerance held when at the time of purchase is no guarantee of continued performance. Thanks to Sodick's zero-friction magnetic drives - rigid linear motor technology - Sodick machines won't lose accuracy with use. In fact, only Sodick offers a 10 Year Positioning Accuracy Guarantee without usage limits, because only Sodick can. This reliability makes a big difference in the Medical industry, where high precision must be maintained at all times, not just within the first year of use.
