Many pieces in structure of a dynamometer may negatively affect the accuracy of the measurements since each piece may display a different strain and stress depending on its material and construction. A one piece dynamometer has been designed to eliminate these negative effects and to facilitate reliable force measurements. A dynamometer that its dimensions were confirmed following strength calculations was manufactured and calibrated in two different ways. The first one was multipoint calibration method in which certain loads were applied to the dynamometer and strain values corresponding to these loads were matched. The second calibration method was implemented using Kistler dynamometer that its results are accepted to be accurate by everyone and it was based on equivalency of force values resulted from work piece processing and force values resulting from machining work pieces with the same parameters to the manufactured dynamometer. The manufactured dynamometer was capable of measuring cutting forces and feeding forces.
