The integration of a load measurement system into a linear guide is both a challenging and promising topic. This work focuses on evaluating a model for the load distribution in linear guide bearings for establishing a sensor system using a direct strain measurement method based on a piezoresistive Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) layer, capable of determining the up to five degrees of freedom load state of the bearing. We observe good matching between the theoretical model and the measured sensor data, demonstrating the capability of the sensor system in different load scenarios.
