Shear beam type force sensors are very common in the world of experimental mechanics, testing machines and in advanced production lines. High stiffness, high output signal and good robustness are the proven advantages of this technology. The principle has been increasingly used for reference sensors in the last years. A new sensor design shows an even higher accuracy for compressive forces.
