Kern EcoFlex Laser

Economical Large Format Laser Cutter And Engraver

The EcoFlex Laser System is Kern’s entry-level large format model. A wrap around gantry traverses over the cutting bed allowing for finished parts to be easily removed at all sides of the machine. The moving gantry features high speed servo motors and a flying optics beam delivery providing consistent beam power and quality over the entire work area. The EcoFlex machine is well known as a highly-productive laser system offered at an economical price.

The optional, Z12 Monument Etching Package offers a greater level of detail than has ever been available to the stone industry. The solid steel frame and extra high gantry is designed to handle heavy stones up to 12″ thick. A wrap around gantry and roller bed make loading and unloading stones quick and easy.

Laser Source

High quality metal cavity laser sources manufactured in the USA by Kern Technologies. Liquid-cooled, metal cavity CO2 laser sources with a wide operating power range and exceptional power stability. Manufactured with pride in Minnesota, USA by Kern Technologies.

Motion Package

High speed servo motors are installed on both axes resulting in smooth cut radiuses, quick acceleration rates and accurate part processing.

Exhaust System

A blower package removes fumes and small debris created during laser processing. An integrated downdraft table holds material secure to the table as it is being processed. A vacuum arm elevates the gantry hoses neatly above the working table.

Chilling Unit

A closed-loop chilling unit will properly cool the laser source, ensuring a long laser lifetime and consistent cutting and engraving results.

Computer / Software

A high-performance computer and monitor package is included with each system. KCAM laser software, CorelDRAW® and an easy-to-use PDF converter are pre-installed on the computer.

Safety

A CE certified electrical panel is placed on each laser system which turns on and shuts down components of the laser system. US CDRH compliance requirements are upheld including emergency stop buttons, interlocked access points and a 5 second safety key switch.

Steel Chassis

Kern’s laser systems are built around a solid steel frame. The frame features Blanchard ground flat surfaces and high-temperature stress relieved welds. Kern technicians double check for precision tolerance at the Kern factory.
