Stainless Steel Laser Cutting & Engraving

Kern’s CO2 and fiber laser systems can be equipped with innovative metal cutting technology. The metal cutting option allows for accurate cutting of stainless steel and similar metals. Leaving a clean, dross free edge, stainless steel can be processed up to 11ga using oxygen assist, or 14ga when cutting with nitrogen, using a Kern CO2 laser. Kern’s CO2 laser systems are able to etch directly onto the metal surface or leave a durable mark with the assistance of a marking spray such as Cermark.
