Kern OptiFlex Laser

An industrial large-format CO2 laser cutting system with a HyperDual motion package.

The OptiFlex is an industrial large format CO2 laser cutting system. The HyperDual motion package debuts on the OptiFlex and is setting the standard for large format laser cutting and engraving across the world. This improved motion system features a rack and pinion design and powerful servo motors at each side of the laser table. Cut acceleration rates are up to three times faster with a 100% increase in top end vector speed. The X axis has also been upgraded with twin linear rails and a thicker steel reinforced belt. An advanced safety package can be added to the OptiFlex for high traffic working environments.

Whether you are a sign shop, metal fabricator or educational institute the OptiFlex laser system should be your machine of choice!

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.
