This paper discusses the difficulties caused by production precision for a widespread application of sensorial Mechatronic Machine Elements to expand existing machines or designs to Cyber-Physical-Systems. The production induced tolerances lead to an undetermined flow of forces in machine elements and prevent a reliable sensing of forces in Mechatronic Machine Elements. A promising approach to overcome these difficulties is Robust Design, which leads to determined mechanical functions that reduce uncertainty of force measurement in Mechatronic Machine Elements.
