HBM Measurement Engineering: your measurement project in reliable hands

Benefit from more than 60 years of measurement technology experience in your measurement projects: with HBM Measurement Engineering services.

HBM Measurement Engineering - what it means in concrete terms: We take on full responsibility for conducting and evaluating your measurement tasks - from design through sensor application to data acquisition and documentation. You receive a comprehensive report of all measurement results.

Are you lacking in resources or know-how to perform your own measurements of mechanical variables such as strain, stress, force or torque on parts, products or structures? Then HBM Measurement Engineering is the perfect solution for you. Our Measurement Engineering services are tailored to your individual requirements along the entire measurement chain and throughout the entire measurement project:

Design and planning

HBM Measurement Engineering supports you in the planning and design of the measurement task. Dialog with the user forms the basis of customized measurement results. Is the measurement task clearly outlined? The next step is to draft a solution. You will benefit from more than 60 years of measurement engineering experience!
