Is it possible to know the axis type, for example X,Y,Z are Linear axis and W is a Rotary axis. Can we get this information from the adapter.?

This depends on your adapter and controller type. If I guess at your actual need, the correlation of the data from the adapter to the definition of the data coming out of the Agent is managed by the Devices.XML file in your Agent.

Once the data is provided to the MTConnect Agent, you certainly can get this information. Each linear axis will be identified by the component type LINEAR and each rotary axis will be identified by a component type ROTARY. For axes, each will also have name attribute. This is required for axes. The name attribute for LINEAR are X, Y, Z, X2, Y2, etc. Your W will likely be called X2 for the name attribute and you can add W as the nativeName attribute. The name attribute for ROTARY components will be A, B, C, A2, B2, etc.
