Quartz tubes are placed on a motorized bed which rotates them. Once the cutting cycle is started, the Quartz Cutter laser system positions a laser beam over each tube in sequence and cuts the tube automatically. The system senses each tube, skips missing tubes and compensates for variances in tube diameters
Each tube is measured as the laser head is automatically fed down onto any tube. This process checks that a tube is present, and determines if the tube diameter is an expected value.
Larger tubes can fit only six (6) across, but 15mm and 19mm diameter tubes will fit twelve (12) across.
