High Performance Meets Versatility

Kern’s OptiFlex is the most popular and versatile laser in their line up.  Metal cutting, acrylic fabrication, and high-speed engraving make it the machine of choice across a variety of industries.

The open bed design allows materials to be handled from all sides of the table and gives users the control and access many enclosed systems lack.

The HyperDual motion package features a rack and pinion design with powerful servo motors on each side of the laser table, resulting in greater speed and acceleration. The X-axis has also been upgraded with twin linear rails and a thicker steel reinforced belt.

Available in four table sizes, the OptiFlex is setting the standard for large format laser cutting and engraving systems.
