The monitoring of machines and equipment is essential for operational safety and for the reduction of operating costs. The recorded measurement data can be used to schedule preventive maintenance and reduce downtimes. Machine servicing can be carried out before the actual damage occurs and service calls adapted to the production needs.
Crimping machines, printing machines (web tension control), wind turbines (structural monitoring) or structures such as bridges or hydropower plants: HBK delivers strain gauges (SG), force and displacement sensors for continuous monitoring and load calculations. Multichannel measurement systems with state-of-the-art automation interfaces and matching software ensure the storage of the measurement data.
