WP2 - Force Measurement

The objective of this WP is the development, manufacturing, integration, characterisation and procurement of force sensor modules (load cell) targeted for micro assembly and mechanical characterisation of small size (10 µm – 2 mm) components. In these fields, there is a need for 1D, 2D and 3D load cells able to measure in the 0.1 N to 10 N ranges with at least sub millinewton resolutions; however such force sensors are hard, if not impossible, to find on the market.
