Abstract: He presents the various cases where the measurement of cutting forces in fast transitory mode is necessary. He exposes also a method of compensation of inertial effects which denatures the signals provided by the most used piezoelectric dynamometers. The possibilities of this method, based on the accelerations measurements of the upper part of the dynamometer, are exposed for the case of a discontinuous turning process. It is shown that the undesirable effects related to the resonance frequencies of the dynamometer and to its base movements are mainly eliminated.

Keywords: force compensation; inertial forces; cutting forces; force measurement; discontinuous machining; discontinuous turning; piezoelectric dynamometers.
