The LaserTurn 1 integrated linear rotary motion subsystem combines automated material handling with high-performance direct-drive linear and rotary motion. The system’s automated, pneumatically actuated Type-D collet closer has a clear aperture for product feed-through and supports 0.1 to 7.9-mm tubing diameters in dry-cutting and up to 3 mm for wet-cutting operations.

The closer is designed to minimize axial tube motion during clamping by keeping the collet stationary and moving the tapered mating surface during collet open/close operation. LaserTurn 1 uses direct-drive noncontact motor and encoder technology for both the linear and rotary axes. Direct-drive motors have higher throughput and maintenance-free operation compared to gear and screw-driven technologies.
