Abstract

To ensure the reliable monitoring of machining operations, e.g. by lathes, the forces generated during the metal removal process must be detected with the utmost precision. Almost every type of lathe can be straightforwardly monitored for these factors with a force sensor which not only measures forces in three directions but which also incorporates the necessary electronics to amplify the output signals.
