Unite your product expertise with HBK's sensor know-how

The Custom Sensor Solution team is pleased to invite you to an exclusive HBK event hosted at our primary manufacturing facility in Darmstadt, Germany. Your role holds significant importance in designing intelligent products that align with the ever-evolving market demands. Sensors, being a crucial component in this process, sometimes encounter limitations in meeting the dimensions, capacities, and functionalities of your conceptual designs.

The main objective of these upcoming days is to synergize your expertise in innovative product development with the experience of our engineers in designing custom sensor solutions. We also invite you to join dedicated workshops and to explore our strain gauge manufacturing facility, the cornerstone of our sensor systems, where HBK has maintained leadership for over seven decades.

We highly recommend registering for a private session: during these sessions, our engineers will be available to address any queries you may have regarding customized sensors. They will guide you through the process of transforming your current system into an active sensor and assist in determining the most suitable system for your project. Your active participation in these sessions will contribute to the successful collaboration between your expertise and our specialized sensor solutions.
