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.

Thanks for the comments.

I am surprised that I did not get notified about the answers since I selected that option.

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.

I have only been running ABS for a long time.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
