What Our Clients Say

“I believe that your company is one of the best companies I’ve known in my 30 years in business. I could see for myself how you build the machines and how much care you put into the building. I was thrilled also of the fact that in order to start the machine there was no need of specialized personnel. I also thank you for the hospitality you have offered me during my stay with you. If today I were to buy another laser machine, definitely buy a laser machine Kern again for sure.”
Vighi A. & C. Snc (Italy)
Managing Partner
“Keith from Kern called and said he had a machine we might be interested in and we had a chat. Cabin Digital had a discussion and decided it was time to move on and make the financial commitment and buy a Kern. First impressions “Holy Cow! The Kern folks have a great design, factory and their acts together not to mention the folks are super nice!”
Rich Domikis
Cabin Digital LLC
Information Technology Analyst
“Kern laser has provided us an excellent machine, and has supported our needs very efficiently. I would recommend Kern laser to anyone. I was having issues with the laser accelerating out of corners too quickly and creating striations within the cut. Jake Shaw, a tech at Kern Laser, helped me by explaining how the laser operates around corners and then supplied me with effective information to correct the issue based on material thickness. As I previously stated, Kern laser has had the best tech support I have had. I will vouch for Kern and their team at any time.”

Case Study - Laser Etch Technologies, Buffalo, MN

Owner Tim Pawelk of “Laser Etch Technologies” roots run deep with Kern Laser Systems. A customer since 1999, Laser Etch currently uses four Kern lasers that have been instrumental in achieving worldwide attention. Such projects included teaming up with renowned Tibetan artist Rinchen Dorgee. Dorgee was instrumental in the creation of the throne the Dalai Lama used during his visit to Minneapolis/St. Paul in May of 2001. The throne was also recently used for His Holiness when he visited Minneapolis this year to celebrate the Tibetan New Year.

Around Minnesota, Tim has also done amazing work.  Most notably, his wood etching and engraving can be seen in the Legends Club area located at Target Field, the home of the Minnesota Twins.

Baseball fans would recognize Pawelk’s grand slam work located at Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins. This creative wonder that includes both etching and engraving can be seen in the Legends Club and press box areas of the stadium.

Pawelk allows that the Kern Laser Systems has provided him with the needed tools to think outside the box and grow his business through the wide range of capabilities found in a Kern laser.

He has been able to do a variety of projects with his Kern Lasers that he’s sure he wouldn’t be able to do with the use of some of the competitors’ laser systems.  Some of his projects have drawn attention not only in the United States, but also worldwide.  In 2001, Tim Pawlek and Laser Etch teamed up with renowned Tibetan artist Rinchen Dorgee.  Rinchen was the main artist involved with the creating of the Dalai Lama’s throne his visit to the Twin Cities in May of 2001.  The throne was recently used for his holiness when he visited Minneapolis this year to celebrate the Tibetan New Year.

Optional Packages

K-Vision Camera

The K-Vision Camera package is a fully integrated hardware and software solution allowing fast and accurate cutting of printed materials.

This process starts with a nozzle mounted camera which automatically measures the dimensions between registration marks on printed materials. The system then uses these measurements and the registration marks of the original cutting file to compensate for distortion and rotation. The slight adjustments that k-vision makes to the cutting file results in a perfectly matched cutout in the material being processed. The entire camera system can be easily removed and stored in a protective box when not in use.

nlight laserThe beam quality of fiber lasers is typically superior to other laser types. This high-quality beam allows for extremely precise and detailed work, making them ideal for applications requiring intricate designs, such as in the electronics, medical, and jewelry industries.

Due to their high electrical-to-optical efficiency, fiber lasers consume less power, which not only reduces energy costs but also minimizes their environmental impact.

Fiber lasers are known for their extreme accuracy and precision in cutting. They can produce very fine, clean cuts with minimal kerf width, which is especially beneficial for intricate designs or when working with very thin materials. This precision leads to a high-quality finish, reducing the need for secondary finishing processes.

Fiber lasers are capable of cutting at very high speeds, significantly faster than traditional cutting methods like mechanical cutting or CO2 lasers. This increased speed translates to higher productivity and efficiency in manufacturing processes, enabling faster turnaround times for projects.

Fiber lasers are highly versatile and can cut a wide range of materials, including metals such as steel, aluminum, copper, and brass. They are also effective with various material thicknesses. This versatility makes them suitable for a variety of industries and applications, from automotive to aerospace.

Compared to other types of laser systems, such as CO2 lasers, fiber lasers have relatively low maintenance requirements and operational costs. They have fewer moving parts and do not require gases to operate, which reduces the need for regular maintenance and the associated costs. Additionally, their energy efficiency results in lower energy consumption, further reducing operational costs.

The FiberCELL is an enclosed Class 2 laser system, featuring a complete sheet metal enclosure further reducing potential risks.
