Creating a safe and healthy working environment should be a top priority when implementing any piece of industrial machinery.
A portion of Kern’s training program is dedicated to safety protocols that should be practiced to ensure a safe working environment. Two very important safety tips are: always wear laser safety glasses inside the Laser Controlled Area (Class 4 machines only), and ensure the vacuum system is working to effectively remove fumes that may be created during laser processing. Safety Data Sheets should be reviewed any time a new material is to be processed.
Kern laser systems are equipped with various safety measures which will keep the operator and others working around the machine safe. Highlighted below are just a few of these safety features.
