Abstract:

The transducer described operates at pressing rates of up to 300 mmsec. Two foil gages are glued on the inside of the unit and there are two other compensation gages tests of the transducer were conducted on a 1500 ton press. A formula gives the deformation of the transducer pot as a function of the current and sensitivity equations are given for calculating the values of the circumferential and longitudinal stresses in the transducer pot.
