In this study, the fatigue life evaluation of automatic transfer devices under stress concentrations due to the notch effect is performed. To investigate residual life of a notched component, load histories were obtained through strain measurement. A fatigue test was performed on a specimen imitating a real component and results were compared with each notch root radius of the concentration area. Three-dimensional finite element analysis was also performed to evaluate the local stress fields. Miner’s rule was used to predict the fatigue life calculation. As a result, the predicted life of a notched component was in good agreement with a real component and introduced a special method for measuring load using real machine components.
