Our business


Accelerate your product development ambitions

Create better products, faster

In this increasingly digital world, engineers need highly accurate, integrated data solutions to balance performance elements and bring their products to market faster.

As the product physics expert, HBK bridges the gap between the physical and virtual domains through class-leading, integrated test and measurement solutions across the entire test, and measurement chain.

This enables you to accelerate your product development process, create outstanding products and solve your data challenges.

Core focus areas

HBK partners with engineers across a wide variety of industries including automotive, aerospace, industrial, and telecom to drive competitiveness across their business, and quality across their products. 

Our offering brings everything from sensors and data acquisition to data preparation, evaluation and engineering services together, with software-driven solutions designed to facilitate digital transformation and industry-leading excellence in hardware systems.

A complete portfolio of solutions across the test and measurement life cycle

HBK provides a complete portfolio of technologies that cover the entire test and measurement life cycle across every domain. While sensor hardware and DAQs remain at the heart of our offering, we also provide state-of-the-art data management software and analysis software, as well as simulation software and hardware.

So whether you are a developer or a manufacturer, we are ready to support you at every stage of the product development and optimization process, including:

– Physical and virtual testing for more innovative Research & Development
– In-line measurement and end-of-line testing for manufacturing control and efficiency
– In-product sensing and in-service monitoring to maximize product quality for OEMs

On one hand, this means engineers have the tools they need to accelerate development cycles while maintaining production efficiency and quality. On the other, OEMs can continuously and reliably optimize performance through sophisticated in-product measurement and monitoring.
