The 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 at all sides of the 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 80 inches by 120 inches in size.

The HSE equipment is versatile to the degree that it will quickly process acrylic, metal, wood, stone, foam and more. The HSE truly is the laser system of choice for sign makers, metal fabricators and educational institutes around the world.
