The Kern Difference

laser cutter engraver dedicated


Operating a factory in a small town in the Midwest certainly has advantages. Employees at Kern have the good fortune of knowing each other through work, family, sports, and community activities. Bringing those relationships to the workplace combined with a great Midwestern work ethic makes for a dynamic and exciting place to work. Our quality workforce is who we are as a company for those reasons.

We take pride in not only building one of the finest lasers on the market, but also in developing and nurturing the relationships with those who buy from us. Customers from throughout the USA and around the world who come to visit us witness firsthand the passion Kern employees have as they share their observations. A Kern laser is not just made in the USA, it is made in the Midwest, in our factory, by our employees. Dedication at Kern Lasers is all-encompassing and something we are fiercely proud of.


Versatility and profitability go hand in hand with a Kern laser. Changing from cutting light metal to plastics takes only a few minutes. Kern has the ability to cut wood, plastics, leather, and light metal on one machine, with virtually no downtime.

A Kern laser is not the typical laser in a box model. Rather, the flat open surface of a Kern laser allows access from all sides of the table making loading and unloading of material simple. Knowing you can house one machine that gives you the freedom to switch from job to job is called being efficient. With a Kern laser, you can give yourself the tools to maximize your shop time and exceed your customer’s expectations – that combination is something most shops cannot afford to be without.


There are few things in life that are more important than one’s reputation. At Kern, we build our reputation one client at a time. We produce top quality machines by technicians who are experienced with manufacturing lasers as well as customer communications.

Each Kern laser comes with a full one-year warranty backed by our company. When you buy a Kern laser you get much more than a high quality laser, you get our dependability. Don’t just take our word for it, ask our customer base.


At Kern Laser Systems, we recognize the ever changing world of technology. That is a primary reason why our research and development is housed in a new separate facility and staffed by a dedicated team of qualified technicians. Our reputation is built on providing state of the art machines, backed by high-quality service.

The passion we have at Kern Laser Systems to improve and develop new technology is part of our company commitment to our clients and to ourselves. Trust Kern Laser Systems to bring innovation to your business.
