What Our Customers Say About Us

We have been using HBM's catman AP data acquisition software in structural testing for several years. We appreciate the usability, reliability and enormous range of functions. Without catman, we would not run a measurement analysis! HBM offers first-class support and an integrated knowledge base, responding to new possible improvements and questions very fast.
