HBK Expert Talks with the expert talking to the audience with branding fast forward

How does HBK make flying safer?


Kerstin and Thomas answer these questions for you. In this episode of Measurement Stories, they welcome guest expert Gianmarco Sironi who not only projects such measurement tasks but has also performed fatigue tests himself for many years.

Dress rehearsal of a measurement


Even a new measurement task should be rehearsed so that everything works during the important measurement! Go on a test drive and find out which forces act on crates and pallets during braking.

Optimizing electrical powertrains


Vehicle powertrain systems are changing fundamentally. From the combustion engine to the electric drive. Is the classic measuring tool torque transducer still suitable to master the new tasks? Our torque experts will show you the new tasks and explain whether or what will change now.

Safe driving with the railroad


Runout and wear on railroad wheels not only reduce comfort, they also reduce driving safety. The intelligent ARGOS® measurement and analysis system accurately evaluates the condition of the vehicle’s wheels, running behaviour and operational performance.

How to find the right accelerometer to match your needs!


Feeling overwhelmed by all the different types of existing accelerometers? This episode of Expert Talk will guide you towards finding the right transducer easily. Learn, among other things what to consider when choosing an accelerometer, what is the accelerometer’s frequency range, and much more.

What is the correct sample rate? What is the best filter?


Do you know when the Shannon-Nyquist sampling theorem is helpful and when can it be misleading? Get the answer and more in this HBK Expert Talk episode where you will learn about sample rates and filters.

Measuring is worthless without calibration!


This episode is about a topic that is often underestimated and yet so fundamentally important: calibration. Without proper calibration, precise and correct measurement is not possible. Our calibration expert and academy trainer Thomas Hesse explains the basics of this essential topic with numerous practical examples.

What effects do earth and mass have on the quality of your measurement results


This episode of the HBK Expert Talk is about the separation of earth and mass. The exact differentiation of earth and mass has important effects on the quality of your measurement results. Why this is so, and which calculations you should make, are explained by HBK Academy trainer Patrik Ott.

How can you avoid electromagnetic interference when measuring with strain gauges?


Have you always wanted to know what is really important when handling strain gauges? And how to work with electromagnetic interference? Then learn the best tips &and tricks first hand. In this Expert Talk, Patrik Ott, trainer at the HBK Academy, provides you with practical tips and tricks when dealing with strain gauges.

How useful is a multi-range torque transducer?


In this Expert Talk, we will look at the principle of a multi-range torque transducer. How does it work and what are the advantages for the user? To improve the quality of torque measurements, a multi-range transducer is often praised. Is it really the solution or just a marketing gimmick?

How to build a strain gauge based transducer?


You want to develop your transducer yourself or improve the characteristics of your transducer? Perhaps we can give you a jump start on what you should look out for when selecting strain gauges. Have a look at our expert talk with Angela Bäumel and Dr. Henrik Brutlach and learn a little more about compensating for temperature influences and creep of transducers.


Torque transducers for optimizing electrical power trains


Vehicle power train systems are changing fundamentally. From the combustion engine to the electric drive. Is the classic measuring tool torque transducer still suitable to master the new tasks? Our torque experts will show you the new tasks and explain whether or what will change now.

Optimal selection of strain gauge based force transducers


Every force measurement is different. With the wrong selection of the force transducer, it is possible that completely wrong measurement results are obtained. Our force experts define the most important questions for selection and also give you the answers to them. You can look forward to a guide on selection criteria for force transducers.

Hygenic weighing and state of the art weighing in production


Do you also want to weigh faster, more accurately and more conveniently with your production line? Do you want maintenance to be easy and even certified hygienic? Thomas Langer and Henrik Brutlach show you what the next step could look like for you.

Read and interpret technical data correctly


Are all the measurement properties of a measuring device also included in a technical documentation? Our expert Thomas Hesse, explain what you should pay attention to when reading a data sheet.
