Cutting Force Measurement

Measure Cutting Forces with the Global Market Leader – Piezoelectric Dynamometers from Kistler

How well can a given material be machined? What are the ideal process parameters? How do tool adjustments affect the cutting forces? So many challenges, but you need only one partner: Kistler dynamometers deliver reliable force and torque measurements. Our stationary and rotating dynamometers are suitable for virtually every application, giving you the insights into machining processes that are essential to success. All our dynamometers are based on piezoelectric technology – the unrivalled measurement solution for maximum precision and signal quality. They feature excellent rigidity and convincingly high natural frequencies with compact yet robust designs and easy handling, so complex process analyses involving wide measurement ranges pose no problems at all.

Cutting Force Measurement
Drilling

Drilling generates exceptionally high thermal loads on workpieces. Especially when safety-critical components are involved, process analysis based on measurements of process forces is the key factor that ensures maximum production reliability.

Cutting Force Measurement
Milling

Piezoelectric dynamometers really come into their own in milling applications. High natural frequencies mean that accurate measurement results are guaranteed even with high tooth passing frequencies. 

Cutting Force Measurement
Turning

Measuring the cutting forces in turning processes pays off in a variety of applications: investigation of plastic-mechanical behavior in the actual cutting process, analysis of chip formation and its impact on the process, or identification of wear processes with force progressions – to name only a few.
