Alfex to Launch New Kern OptiFlex Laser at VI Brisbane

11-Apr-2018 Leading machine tool supplier Alfex CNC Australia, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, has announced it will be unveiling the all-new Kern OptiFlex Laser on stand #G14 at the Visual Impact expo in Brisbane next month.

The OptiFlex is Kern’s flagship high-performance laser system, with a HyperDual motion package which Alfex says ‘sets the standard’ for large format laser cutting and engraving machines.

“This new system provides powerful, accurate cutting and engraving with cut acceleration rates up to three times faster than its competitors and work areas of up to 2,000mm x 3,000mm,” says Alfex CNC Business Development Manager, Christian Buhagiar.

“We’ll be showing the 1320 x 2540mm OPF 100 model on the Alfex stand, and demonstrating how its 400 watt laser enables it to cut metal as well as acrylic and plastic substrates, with ease.”

While the OptiFlex is sure to pull the crowds, Buhagiar says it will be just one of the highlights of the Alfex display. The company’s experienced staff will also be showcasing:
• The large-format Epilog Fusion M2 Dual Source Laser engraving and cutting system, which handles both CO2 and Fibre Laser applications and is the perfect choice for cutting and engraving a wide range of materials from wood and bare metal, to acrylic and other engineered plastics.
• The innovative μMETA fiber laser marking workstations from UK-based Lotus Laser, a company well known for its highly affordable, versatile and reliable laser marking and cutting solutions. The μMETA offers superior functionality and performance, and is a versatile, space and energy-saving option for marking most metals and many types of plastic.
• Vision Engravers CNC Routers which are designed for serious production environments. Ideal for large-run jobs, these digitally controlled machines are available in sizes from the 1220mm x 2440mm VR48 model, through 635mm x 635mm 2525 and 635mm x 1270mm 2550 models to the very popular 1624R 400 x 600mm, which offers enormous capabilities in a small footprint. All models also now come with the option of a new oscillating knife which is ideal for semi-rigid materials like foam board, rubber and single-ply cloth.
• The Duets by GeminiTM range of flexible, high-performance two-ply engraving substrates, which includes products for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor applications including wayfinding, branding, reception, rotary engraving and reverse engraving, and even has flexible options for curved surfaces.
“We are excited to be able to showcase the latest solutions on our stand at Visual Impact, and we’re looking forward to giving visitors an introduction to how we can help them build their business via improved production processes and efficiency,” Buhagiar says.

Alfex CNC will be on Stand #G14 at Visual Impact Brisbane, which will run from 18-21 April at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
