Kern DHS Lasers

The DHS Laser System was specially designed for customers that require a laser system to meet their high production cutting requirements. The Dual Head System (DHS) is equipped with two laser heads, allowing for double the production cutting. Kern’s KCAM software will match the power of each laser resulting in two identically powered lasers. If you wish to cut a single large file, simply lock one laser to the side and the master laser has full kern.laser.dhscutting capacity over the entire table top.

The DHS Laser offers a rugged table structure that will hold up to your demanding production schedules. The tight footprint of this model allows a 0″ reach clearance for loading your material and removing your parts. Kern Lasers’ DHS Laser Cutting and Engraving Systems use only one mirror, allowing easy adjustment of the laser beam to the optics lens. This adjustment is done once at the factory and may not need to be adjusted again. The DHS Laser Machine maintains a constant laser power over the entire table top as the laser is moved over the material with a fixed focus point.

Available in 30, 50, 100, 150 and 200 watt configurations. Bed Sizes from 52”x25” (1320x635mm) to 80”x120” (2032x3048mm).

Standard Features

USA Made Laser Head

All lasers sold by Kern are designed and manufactured with pride in the USA.
Downdraft Table / Vacuum System
Smoke, fumes, and small debris are all removed by a vacuum system that pulls from both below and above your material. A downdraft vacuum will hold your material down to the table while it is being cut and engraved.
Computer and Laser Software
A high-performance computer and monitor are provided with each laser system. Kern’s state-of-the-art KCAM laser cutting and engraving software is included on every laser system. An easy to use printer driver will send your vector and raster files to the laser. Upgrades to the KCAM software are free. Your choice of design software such as CorelDRAW®, AutoCAD LT® or Adobe lllustrator® is also included.
UL / CE / CDRH
A UL certified electrical panel is placed on each laser system which turns on and shuts down components of the laser system. DHS laser systems are CE compliant to meet European Union consumer safety, health and environmental requirements. U.S. CDRH compliance requirements are upheld on the DHS laser system to meet specifications in 21 CFR, Subchapter J, parts 1040.10 & 1040.11.
Chilling Unit
A closed loop chilling unit is included on all laser systems of 100 watts or greater. This chilling unit will keep your laser head cooled and running smoothly.
Quality Bearings, Rails, and Belts
A top-of-the-line motion package includes parts selected from US companies that value the idea of high tolerances, great repeatability, and precision accuracy.
Solid Steel Frame
Kern builds the DHS laser system around a solid steel frame that has been Blanchard ground flat with all welds stress relieved in a high-temperature oven. All stands are double checked at the Kern factory for precision straightness.
