New OptiFlex System Wows Attendees at SGIA and Fabtech

Last week we rounded out our 2017 trade show schedule.  Our last two shows of the year, the SGIA Expo, and Fabtech were very exciting for us as we unveiled the OptiFlex system at SGIA, and our new FiberCELL at Fabtech.

More than 19,000 people attended the SGIA Expo, which was held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.  A wide array of exhibitors showcased innovative technologies and products in the printing marketplace.  This was a great show for us and we are looking forward to exhibiting again next year.

Fabtech was held at the McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.  We were able to have the OptiFlex at this show, but added the unveiling of our first ever fiber laser system.  As one of our bigger shows of the year, it boasted just over 44,000 attendees, which was a great way for people to take a look at our newest systems.  Sales Representative Eric Johnson stated,  “attendees were excited and impressed with our new FiberCELL system, but many people were especially drawn to the OptiFlex, due to its’ versatility and ability to cut many different types of material other than metal.”  Our other Sales Representative at Fabtech, Nate Korkowski added that “the OptiFlex will impress attendees at every type of show, and I can’t wait for us to showcase it in 2018.”

Kern will also be exhibiting at the 2018 Fabtech Expo in Atlanta.  For more information on these shows, please visit their homepages:
