Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CALIBRATING FORCE AND TORQUE MEASURING DEVICES
Abstract:
The present invention proposes a method and an apparatus for traceably calibrating multi-axis force and torque measuring devices on the basis of the determination of an actuator parameter. According to the invention, the calibration is carried out by measuring the actuation and reaction magnitude and the speed of a relative movement. In contrast to known solutions, the calibration can be carried out independently of the spatial direction. Therefore, the proposed method can be used both for single-axis force and/or torque measuring devices and for multi-axis force and/or torque measuring devices.
