Kern Micro Laser

The Micro is a small, entry-level laser and engraving system.

The only thing ‘small’ about the Kern MICRO Laser is its table size, as it can be equipped with the same powerful CO2 lasers as our large format models. The MICRO comes standard with high-speed engraving technology and a moving Y-axis bed for fast, accurate vector cutting. The MICRO laser system is a flexible laser solution, consuming minimal floor space in your facility.

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.


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.
