View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
A sensor system includes a load-carrying element, an encoder structure, and a magnetic flux transducer. The load-carrying element is formed of substantially non-magnetic material, while the encoder structure is formed of magnetic material deposited via cold spray additive manufacturing within the load-carrying element. The magnetic flux transducer is disposed adjacent the load-carrying element to sense changes in magnetic flux caused by relative motion of the encoder structure.
