New technology for development of load cells with integrated MEMS sensor


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.

Partner sought

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.


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.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
