The 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.
A redesigned top gantry vacuum efficiently picks up fumes created during the engraving process. An improved down draft vacuum bed will hold down sheets securely and channel fumes created during the laser cutting process to your outside duct.
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 FiberCELL’s motion system well exceeds the demands of Kern’s growing customer base.
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.
A high performance computer, with Windows OS, is supplied with each FiberCELL machine. The computer is connected to the laser via Kern’s USB DSP technology and KCAM Laser Software. Nesting, common-line cutting, lead-ins and tabs are an easy task with SigmaNest® Techno™ Software.
Emergency stops are located around the laser table which will shut down the laser and motion when activated. A UL certified electrical panel is installed on each machine. The beam path is completely sealed between the laser source and beam delivery nozzle.
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.
