Abstract

This paper discusses the design and development of an additive manufactured force transducer for force measurement applications. The force transducer is of square ring shape and dimensions have been evaluated in accordance to available literature. Fused filament fabrication technique has been adopted for fabrication of the force transducer and strain gauges have been applied at defined location in form of a Wheatstone bride. Efforts regarding metrological characterization are underway and successful demonstration of the force transducer will define a new development in the direction of force transducers.
