Education Applications

CUSTOMIZED WHITEBOARDS

Customized whiteboards can be made for a variety of applications. Teachers use them to mark student accomplishments, farmers utilize them to keep track of crop rotations and golf courses use them to keep track of grass mowing cycles.

COMMERCIAL SIGNAGE

Laser cut signs can be found just about everywhere, including schools, museums, commercial buildings and store fronts. There are many different sign making techniques used and Kern’s laser system can improve the manufacturing process. LED etched, channel letters, inlays and paint backfilled are just a few of the signs Kern’s lasers have helped create over the years.

SCALE MODELS

Kern’s CO2 lasers are versatile to the point that they are able to process wood, plastic, metal and many other materials commonly used in production of scale models. A short focal length lens can be installed to allow for a .003″ diameter cutting kerf which is often required for the most intricate of models.

CLOCKS

Laser cut and engraved clocks created with a Kern laser system.

Awards & Trophies

One of the earliest and best-known laser applications is creating awards and trophies. A large variety of materials will work great for this application, especially acrylic and glass. Kern laser systems come complete with the software necessary to produce the most professional looking product possible. It is common to etch a mirrored image of your artwork on the backside of the blank so that your etching shows through to the front side.

Benefits to using a Kern laser for Educational Materials.

Cut Optimizer. Decrease your programming time by letting KCAM automatically determine the fastest cut order for your most complicated designs.

Time Estimator. Provide accurate pricing to your customers by knowing the amount of laser processing time before the product even makes it to the laser bed.

Tool Offset. A simple inside/outside offset can be set to compensate for the laser beam kerf. This results in precisely sized parts without modification of your original part drawings.

Customized Pierce Settings. The dwell time, laser power, frequency, focus point and air flow can be set independently from your normal cut settings. This feature ensures metals are cut clean with minimal to no dross.

Air Control. Compressed shop air, oxygen or nitrogen can be hooked up to the laser system for optimal processing results on a variety of laserable materials.

Vector Path Speed Control. KCAM mimics a race car by slowing the cutting speed into sharp corners and accelerating out of them. The result is smooth, consistent cutting with the tap of your mouse.

Laser Printer Driver. An easy to use Laser Printer Driver links KCAM to commonly used design software such as CorelDRAW® and AutoCAD LT®.

Vision Registration System. K-Vision is a fully integrated hardware and software solution that turns your laser cutting table into an advanced digital finishing system.

G-CODE capable. Are you used to programming with GCODES ? No problem! KCAM’s built in GCODE converter allows you to continue working with your preferred CAM software to generate .NC files that are loaded directly into KCAM.
