Welding control

With typical low stiffness and pretty limited space, available force monitoring of welding processes is a challenging task. HBK can help with piezoelectric force washers and a wide range of strain transducers to provide reliable results even under harsh production environments.

Bending/Rolling control

Monitoring axial bearings of rolling mills determines the workpiece position or rolling process forces. Overload will eventually result in bad product quality and costly bearing exchanges. Our force measurement solutions help extend bearing service life.

Vibration control

Vibrations can cause high-precision machines operating within a µm tolerance to fail or produce rejects. Compensation systems, with built-in vibration sensors from HBK, can eliminate the effects of vibrations and thus ensure high production quality.

Measurement Solutions for Industrial Process Applications

Are you looking for effective and cost-efficient ways to monitor your manufacturing processes within the scope of production measurement technology? Then look no further! We offer just what you need for efficient production control and process automation.

Whatever your industry or application – be it the manufacture of pharmaceutical products, automotive components, or the processing of raw materials such as sheet metal or paper – HBK provides you with hardware and software packages that exactly meet your requirements: from sensor to amplifier to specialized software. Our sales teams provide support to customers worldwide. We use standard products to quickly solve the challenges you face but can also easily develop a custom solution for special requirements.

Industrial Measurement Technology

Measurement technology is used in different setups and applications in production environments, for example in:

  • Industrial process control, ensuring the quality of specific production and joining processes
  • End-of-line tests in production lines in which the functioning of products or components is checked at random
  • Parts of machinery such as presses, to avoid overload and optimize process control

Irrespective of the actual application in production, it is essential that the measuring equipment is fit-to-function, i.e., adapted to the application and ready for use, even in harsh industrial environments. At the same time, the control and visualization screen must reflect actual working conditions in the production environment, e.g., through different user levels and maximum usability. HBK's measurement chains for industrial measurement technology and control always provide the right solution. Our sensors guarantee reliability and ruggedness during use. Amplifier systems such as PMX are the ideal choice for measurement data acquisition, also in automated production lines.

Explore Industrial Process Control by Application

Industrial manufacturing processes require full control to achieve the best possible product quality and the highest output at the lowest possible cost. Thanks to IIoT, machines and devices in smart factories are connected to provide production and diagnosis data in real time.

To measure mechanical parameters such as force (load), displacement, strain, or torque reliably, it’s vital to seamlessly integrate the data into machine control systems for quality assurance. It has a high impact on production efficiency as it allows operators to immediately detect deviations and initiate corrective action.

To leverage the full data potential, it’s important to use reliable, high-precision sensors and perfectly harmonized industrial electronics with edge capabilities and a wide range of programmable interfaces for data visualization and analysis. HBK provides proven measurement solutions for cost-efficient, high-precision manufacturing.
