Abstract

This linear feedback load cell device provides a load cell which has very high sensitivity, low mass, and high natural frequency, and is insensitive to transverse loading and thermal changes. Additionally, the stylus or tip can follow an irregular surface in providing the needed data. The concepts included in the structure can be extended to displacement measurement, vibration excitation, and component simulation.
