Camera Registration System ensures precise operation.

January 15, 2015

Available for any Kern laser system, optional k-vision package consists of fully integrated hardware and software solution that allows cutting of printed materials. Nozzle-mounted camera automatically measures dimensions between registration marks on printed materials. Afterwards, measurements and registration marks of original cutting file are used to compensate for distortion and rotation. Entire camera system can be removed and stored in protective box when not in use. Read More

X-Ray Screening System aids anti-terrorism efforts.

January 5, 2015

Linked to any X-ray machine used to screen for prohibited items, SecureTech™ instantly transmits suspect images and real-time video to remote operations centers for analysis. Technicians view video stream live while speaking with onsite individual as to level of threat parcel posses. Final evaluation process manipulates image to determine if item is considered Threat/No Threat. Technology also allows for Internet-based training by providing immediate access to experienced bomb technicians. Read More
