Abstract : The measurement of cutting force is one of the key factors in determining the tool condition and improving machine reliability. Therefore, the cutting force measurement becomes crucial to improve the machining process. The cutting force can be measured with piezoelectric as well as piezoresistive transducers. The force measuring transducers with later ones are cost-effective and can be easily installed in any small/medium-scale enterprise. For this approach, the selection of sensing elements is essential. The various mechanical ring elements were used for sensing the deformation. The low-cost device can be affordable in small-scale industries. Along with cutting force, it is suggested to measure the vibration signals to analyze the machining dynamics of the process. The salient features and diverse force measuring transducers were discussed in this article. This paper aims to briefly review the existing design and performance of dynamometers used in modern manufacturing.
