Signal Processing – Key Element in Designing an Accurate Machining Forces Measuring Device


Associate Professor Mihaiela Iliescu
“POLITEHNICA” University of Bucharest
Manufacturing Department

Abstract: When manufacturing parts, specially by machining process, it is often necessary to have reliable information on machining forces involved. So, systems and devices for measuring these forces have to be used, this paper presenting an innovative one, which, has also been patented. One of the most important aspects in designing such a device is represented by good signal processing, so that, for instance, specific calibrating equations to be appropriate determined. Checking obtained results into real machining conditions represents a final challenge.
