Aiming at solving the problem of measuring six-axis heavy load and improving measuring accuracy in fatigue test of large structure, this study presents a new type of six-axis force sensor based on the heavy load division principle. The sensor is made with piezoelectric quartz which is used as force sensitive element. This study proposes a type of four point support structure and the spatial mechanical model is deducted for the sensor. Finally, the static calibration experiment is carried out in this study. Experimental results show that the six-axis force of heavy load equipment can be measured with this type of sensor. The basic performance of the sensor shows that it can meet the engineering requirements well.
