New technology for development of load cells with integrated MEMS sensor

Country of Origin: Bulgaria
Reference Number: TOBG20190404001
Publication Date: 4 April 2019

Summary

Bulgarian research organization is working in the field of mechatronics and robotics. The research team offers a new technology and product for development of load cells with integrated MEMS sensor. The innovation is that the new product can be used for measurement of forces from several grams to 1 ton. The sought cooperation type is research partnership agreement.

Description

The Bulgarian research organization has a lot of experience in the field of robotics and mechatronics. The research team is working in the field of development and automation of complex micro/nano manipulation processes. The organization has a technology for development of MEMS silicon devices. The new product presents a load cell with integrated MEMS sensor. The well known commercially available load cells on the market are with integrated strain-gauges. The innovative part is the use of MEMS technology in this manufacturing process. The load cell could measure forces from several grams to 1 ton. The working range is extremely extended because of the innovative mechanical construction. The mechanism could be used for measurement of displacements in the field of sub-micrometer range.

The research organisation is looking for research partnership agreement with other scientific organizations for testing the functionality of the new product and technology.

Advantages and Innovations

The main advantages are the integration of MEMS device in the load cell. This type of a sensor will give the possibility to measure very small weights in the range of several grams. The innovative mechanical construction will extend the working range till 1 ton. The device will be used also for measurement of displacements equal to several micrometers.

Stage Of Development

Available for demonstration

Requested partner

The type is a research cooperation agreement. The research organization is looking for high technological centers in Europe for testing the functionality of the new product.
