Such was the question asked by electronics apprentice Fabio Rudigier when determining a suitable topic for his final project as part of his final apprenticeship examination.
He wanted to develop a machine that measures the force applied by an arm press and displays it visually on a display device.
From the idea to the finished project
In cooperation with the developers of Gantner Instruments, a suitable module, the Q.bloxx A137, was produced, which measures the bending of the lever by connecting strain gauges.
The lever is a square steel tube with a metal ball mounted at the top. This metal ball enables a more ergonomic and natural pressing.
