Direct drive motion platform for laser machining

Direct drive motion platform for laser machining Aerotech’s LaserTurn combines high performance, direct drive brushless linear and rotary positioning stages with automated workpiece handling and provision for customised tooling, delivering a completely integrated motion solution for high throughput cylindrical laser machining applications, with zero backlash performance and micron level precision and repeatability. The new LaserTurn series is the result of Aerotech’s dedicated research and extensive experience to provide improved productivity, industry-specific motion sub-systems for high throughput manufacture and test applications. The integrated linear and rotary design allows a machine centre of gravity that reduces the potential for dynamic pitch error under rapid acceleration and reversal conditions, offering a vast performance improvement over separate linear and rotary stages. Other benefits include superior productivity, higher rigidity, smoother motion with faster settling times, and consistently improved high quality of the laser machined part. Available in two sizes for workpiece diameters up to 30mm with a choice of 200mm or 300mm linear travel, the smaller LaserTurn 2 has an ER16 collet supporting tube and bars from 0.5mm to 10mm diameter. The LaserTurn 5 has a large width footprint and is available with options of an ER25 or ER40 collet for 0.5-16mm and 16-30mm workpiece diameters respectively. In addition, the larger model may be fitted with a three-jaw gripper.
