Paper Abstract

The design and implementation of a software system for supporting laser material processing work is presented. The system integrates a database, numerical simulation and various other computer techniques and provides a user friendly environment. The general system structure is described. Research results on some related topics for the system design are also presented in this paper. This includes a neural network analysis on laser surface hardening and cladding, and the implementation of simulation models for cutting and welding of steel. A PC version of the software, named CALMP (Computer Assisted Laser Material Processing), is briefly described.
