Abstract
Many factors influence laser cutting quality. In this paper, the influence of laser head movement on 3D laser cutting is investigated. Except normal movement which laser head is vertical to work piece surface, three types of movement defined in 3D laser cutting are considered. Experimental design method is used to analyse cutting result. In order to quantitatively describe the relationship between cutting quality and cutting parameters, artificial neural network (ANN) has been setup. The quality marks system is used to evaluate cutting result. The test shows the calculated quality points by ANN is very similar with actual cutting result. The laser head forward movement is better than the others. The ANN is very useful to optimize cutting parameters, predict cutting result and deduce new information.
