Bridging the gap between test and simulation gets you to market faster

In an increasingly digital world, you need highly integrated data solutions. But as more and more data becomes available, many companies struggle to retrieve, organize and validate it. Today, most product development data lives on two ’islands‘: one for simulation, modelling, virtual prototyping and analysis, and the other for testing and measuring. And since data often isn’t well correlated, data chaos results.

HBK will be uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between the data islands. By creating and feeding quality data from real-world testing and measuring into numerical simulations, we’ll help you verify your models and align them to the real world.

Turn data into insights
HBK will drive what we call the Real Data Agenda. This means that we’ll be equipped to provide you with:

  • High-quality, easy-to-use data from real-world testing and measuring
  • Validated simulation results that correlate models with real-world data
  • A platform where test and simulation data will be visually and numerically compared, validated for accuracy and correlated – so you can use it
  • A hub for test-based simulation models that you can import into simulation tools for accuracy when you struggle with the accuracy of pure numerical simulation or when you need simulated results verified


Brüel & Kjær and HBM merge

From 1 January 2019, Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration and HBM will be merging their activities into a new company called HBK — Hottinger, Brüel & Kjær. Both currently operate within the Test and Measurement segment of Spectris, the productivity-enhancing instrumentation and controls company. In addition, HBM Prenscia, the HBM subsidiary, will be fully integrated into HBK.
