Kern has developed its own state-of-the-art laser cutting and engraving software known as KCAM®. Through years of research and customer feedback, KCAM® has developed into a sophisticated laser processing software. Commonly used parameters are set using a convenient user interface.
Cutting and engraving capabilities are standard on all Kern laser systems. A single design file is typically setup so that the engraving is processed first and the cutting starts from an inside to outside sequence. This ensures that the material being processed does not move or drop down while being lasered.
KCAM is continually being upgraded and you will have access to the latest software upgrades from our website. Whether you’re cutting thick acrylic or a thin delicate textile, be ensured that KCAM will provide you with the laser control required for quick and accurate results.
Saves You Time
Cut Optimizer. Decrease your programming time by letting KCAM automatically determine the fastest cut order for your most complicated designs.
Time Estimator. Provide accurate pricing to your customers by knowing the amount of laser processing time before the product even makes it to the laser bed.
Tool Offset. A simple inside/outside offset can be set to compensate for the laser beam kerf. This results in precisely sized parts without modification of your original part drawings.
Gives You Control
Customized Pierce Settings. The dwell time, laser power, frequency, focus point and air flow can be set independently from your normal cut settings. This feature ensures metals are cut clean with minimal to no dross.
Air Control. Compressed shop air, oxygen or nitrogen can be hooked up to the laser system for optimal processing results on a variety of laserable materials.
Vector Path Speed Control. KCAM mimics a race car by slowing the cutting speed into sharp corners and accelerating out of them. The result is smooth, consistent cutting with the tap of your mouse.
Makes Life Easy
Laser Printer Driver. An easy to use Laser Printer Driver links KCAM to commonly used design software such as CorelDRAW® and AutoCAD LT®.
Vision Registration System. K-Vision is a fully integrated hardware and software solution that turns your laser cutting table into an advanced digital finishing system.
G-CODE capable. Are you used to programming with GCODES ? No problem! KCAM’s built in GCODE converter allows you to continue working with your preferred CAM software to generate .NC files that are loaded directly into KCAM.
