This six component
dynamometer measures the cutting forces in any milling process. It
is an improved version based on a principle existing since 1982. The measured
values can be read on a large external
display using auto-hold.
The PC-based data acquisition is performed over the built-in USB interface
with our included software for
tool dynamometers. With this great properties the device suits for multiple
educational and industrial applications.
The milling processes's cutting forces are measured on
the workpiece. The workpiece is clamped in the dynamometer like in a vice.
The device itself is bolted onto the machine's table. The workpiece can
be processed with all kinds of milling and grinding (!) tools. The device
is protected against liquids. The following experiments are possible:
Examination of the influence
of the cutting geometry, material, lubricant cooling and machine settings
Investigation of the optimum parameters of a milling
