HBM celebrates 60 years as test and measurement solutions provider

For six decades, test and measurement solutions from HBM have been used in millions of applications to increase safety and efficiency.

Marlboro, Mass, March 18, 2010—HBM, a test and measurement solutions company, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. For six decades, test and measurement solutions from HBM have been used in millions of applications to increase safety and efficiency. The company has, again and again, set standards in test and measurement.

Like many other success stories, this one too started out small: The German engineer Karl Hottinger founded his company for the development and production of high-grade test and measurement equipment with only ten employees in 1950. Today, HBM (Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik) is a global player in this industry—providing products and services for the complete measuring chain, ranging from transducer through electronic data acquisition systems and complex evaluation and analysis software, complemented by professional services.

Today as sixty years ago, HBM products ensure highly precise and reliable test results—and thus provide increased safety and efficiency. Test results acquired with HBM technology are used in tens of thousands of applications to gather detailed information about the load capacity and functionality of products. Furthermore, using HBM weighing technology ensures that weight is always determined correctly. In addition, HBM's industrial process control solutions allow for efficient manufacturing processes.
