However, there's more to it than these factors. The actual "secret of success" behind our transducers' special quality is our passion for precision. Our developers have been working with passion, knowhow and experience to ensure continuous progress in torque and force measurement technology for decades - encouraged, again and again, by our long-standing customers' feedback.
Kleckers says, ”I often hear that even tricky tasks, for example, measuring very small forces using force transducers with high nominal (rated) force can be accomplished.” HBM supplies the U10M force transducer calibrated for two ranges – 200 N and 16 kN – for field work. Kleckers adds, “Covering this broad range requires high precision during production, particularly regarding thermal properties. At the same time, costs are kept to a minimum. These solutions are impressive and encourage us to develop further.”
HBM presented its first model T1 torque transducer in 1958 – the first force transducer had been launched two years earlier. HBM has been able to score with new innovative advances since then – for example, presenting its T12 digital torque transducer in 2006, which is unequaled in terms of precision to this day.
Striving for innovation is key to our corporate culture. Every new development, every new product brings us closer to a major goal: increasing efficiency for you, our customers – and using state-of-the-art technology to make your measurement projects a success now and in the future. Our latest developments: the T40B and T40FM digital torque transducers with optional, integrated rotational speed measuring system and reference pulse as well as the TIM-EC interface module. The s-shaped S2M force transducer for measuring static and dynamic tensile and compressive forces is a new addition to our range of force transducers.
