Kern OptiDual Laser

Dual laser machine designed for customers that require a laser system capable of high production cutting.

The OptiDual Laser System was specially designed for customers that require a laser system capable of high production cutting. The second laser is connected to the master laser by an adjustable bar. As the master laser is cutting a part, the second laser will be cutting the same part just inches away. Both lasers output power can be matched within the KCAM software. This ensures that the parts being produced are similar in size, accuracy and quality.

The OptiDual’s Y axis is powered by Kern’s HyperDual motion package. This includes high speed servo motors on each side of the table on a rack and pinion setup. The X axis has a linear motor and two precision rails resulting in fast, accurate and smooth cutting performance.

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.
