HBM Test and Measurement further consolidates its leading position in force measurement technology.
HBM looks back on many years of experience in the design and production of force transducers. The first force sensor produced in series was placed on the market in 1958.
HBM has all required key technologies in house. For strain gauge (SG) based force sensors these are the spring element, the strain gauges, the wiring and the calibration. The latter can be offered for the huge force range from 10 N to 5 MN.
HBM has now combined the series production of strain gauge sensors with the customized line to consistently develop its competencies in force measurement. All components are thus available in one place, which enables high-quality customized sensors to be developed and, on request, to be produced in higher quantities. Adaptations during the development of strain gauges and calibration measurements are made directly in house without having to involve third parties. Development cycles are thus significantly shorter.
This approach also applies to piezoelectric sensors. Here, HBM's partner has all core competencies (crystal growing, housing manufacture and calibration) in house. Hence, HBM can now offer customized sensors produced in series - both strain gauge based or piezoelectric.
