Kern HSE Lasers

The Kern HSE Laser System is the flagship model in Kern’s product lineup. A wrap around gantry traverses over the cutting bed allowing for finished parts to be easily removed from all sides of the laser machine. The moving gantry features high-speed servo motors and a flying optics beam delivery providing consistent beam power and quality over the entire work area plus the capability of etching at speeds of up to 150 inches per second, for images up to 52 inches by 100 inches in size.

The Kern HSE Laser Machine is versatile to the degree that it will quickly process acrylic, metal, wood, stone, foam and more. The Kern HSE Laser Machine truly is the laser system of choice for sign makers, metal fabricators and educational institutes around the world.
Standard Features:
USA Made Laser Head
All lasers sold by Kern are designed and manufactured with pride in the USA.
High-Speed Servo Motors
The HSE motion package is powered by servo motors on both axes allowing for engraving at speeds up to 150″/sec with 5G’s of acceleration.
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 always free of charge and readily available on our website. Your choice of design software such as CorelDRAW®, AutoCAD LT® or Adobe lllustrator® is also included.
A UL certified electrical panel is placed on each laser system which turns on and shuts down components of the laser system. HSE laser systems are CE compliant to meet European Union consumer safety, health and environmental requirements. U.S. CDRH compliance requirements are upheld on the HSE 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.
