cnc laserThe OptiFlex is Kern’s flagship high performance laser system. The HyperDual motion package installed on the OptiFlex is setting the standard for large format laser cutting and engraving machines. 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.

The Pipe Rotary, K-Vision Camera and Metal Cutting options are compatible with the entire OptiFlex lineup.

servo motors

HyperDual Motion

The HyperDual system features a dual servo motor/rack and pinion design resulting in greatly improved speed and acceleration. The accuracy and repeatability of the OptiFlex’s motion system well exceeds the demands of Kern’s growing customer base.

Laser Machine Safety

Sheet Metal Guards

Sheet metal panels are installed around the OptiFlex which completely encase the bottom structure of the laser system. All four sides of the table’s work area are accessible for easy loading and unloading of parts.

Safety Systems

Emergency stop switches, laser safety glasses and a sealed beam path between the laser source and tip of the delivery nozzle are just a few safety features of the OptiFlex laser system. Please review the OptiFlex safety video for a more comprehensive review.

assist gas laser

Programmable Air

When the metal cutting option is installed up to three gas supplies can be hooked up and utilized simultaneously. For example, Pierce stainless steel quickly with oxygen, then automatically switch to a nitrogen assist gas for the cut profile giving your part a shiny edge quality and dross free cut.
