Extruder Injection Force Measurement System


Recommended Posts

Posted · Extruder Injection Force Measurement System

I always wanted to know that actual force of the injection and I finally designed a system that gives continuous force display. See: http://www.vinland.com/Extruder_Injection_Force.html

Although I have not been active here, I was on the email list, there are multiple Ultimaker mods and troubleshooting info at: htttp://www.Vinland.com/misc.html

and at: http://www.Vinland.com/blog

Enjoy.

    I have one of those load cells lying around here as well that I'm going to put into a little project. Just need to sit down and finish the damn thing :) Cool to see.

    Love it. This is something that i have wanted to do.

    Have you noticed a difference between different  material types?

     

    I have only been running ABS for a long time.
