The study presents a control and measurement system for the drive parameters of screw compactor machine with open working chamber for shredded materials. The study demonstrates the construction and working principle of the force sensor for measuring the axial force at the compacting screw. The calibration method for the measuring system was presented together with example measurement results for compaction of broken up rye straw, oat straw and hay. The study results were analyzed for feasibility of use for the compaction of materials with specific thermomechanical properties. The conclusion presents the possible forms of application of the established solution in mass production.
Key words: worm/screw-based compaction machine / force sensor
