We consider the issues of creating a smart laser head for operation as a part of automated industrial equipment with computer numerical control. The paper deals with the main tasks solved by such devices and methods for their solution. A number of similar apparatus is examined; comparative analysis is carried out to compare performance and drawbacks. The main types of possible distortions of the contact spot for laser processing of a free-form surface are considered, as well as the main causes of their appearance and the ways of their interpretation during mathematical processing. Also, we have studied the smart head optical-mechanical circuit, designed for compensation of such distortions when working as a part of the technological equipment.
