DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF IMPROVED FORCE TRANSDUCERS OF 500 KN AND 1 MN
The report summarizes the results of a major development in the field of force transducers carried out under contract granted by the Commission of the European Communities to HBM (Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik), the Physikalische Technische Bundesanstalt and the National Physical Laboratory. The objective was to obtain dynamometers of high metrology quality, for forces of 500 kN and 1 MN, reduced sensitivity to temperature variations, eccentricity and creep effects within 1.10**-5. A large number of tests were carried out by PTB and NPL to evaluate the prototype dynamometers. The final results are fully satisfactory and demonstrate the performance of the equipment.
