Abstract
In this paper two common 3D flexible processing methods using high power laser are introduced. One is high power YAG laser robot which use fiber to propagate laser beam. The robot holds laser head to move along spatial route on the surface of 3D part. The movement of robot influences laser processing result. Another is CO2 laser multi-axis system which uses mirrors to transfer laser beam. The quality of laser beam has great effect on propagation of laser beam and therefore influences laser processing quality. In these systems the programming is key to process 3D part. Currently the low efficient on-line teach-in programming is mainly used in these systems. Authors introduce their own developed high efficient off-line auto programming software for 3D laser processing---LaserCAM. The LaserCAM software in auto manufacture in China has been successfully applied.
