HBK - The product physics experts

For many decades, Brüel & Kjær and HBM have been trusted by multiple industries to deliver highly accurate technologies and expertise in test and measurement. Synonymous with innovation and quality, these two renowned and pioneering brands joined forces to become HBK (Hottinger, Brüel & Kjær), forming the world’s foremost provider of integrated test, measurement, control, and simulation solutions for product performance evaluation.

HBK continues to build on the two legacies, untapping the potential of combined knowledge and insight within three physical domains – mechanical, sound and vibration and electrical – and allowing us to pursue solutions for the unmet needs of our customers.

Meeting our customers challenges

From sound and vibration to reliability, durability, propulsion efficiency and weighing, HBK provides you with comprehensive solutions whatever the stage of your product life cycle. From advanced simulations and modelling, through painstakingly accurate measurement and analysis, we devise long-term solutions to help improve the quality, consistency, efficiency and, most importantly, the value of your business so you can deliver a better return on investment.

A committed and enduring partner

Our customers are as diverse as our products and stem from a wide range of industries, many of them fiercely competitive. Our focus markets include automotive, aerospace and defence, weighing technologies and telecom audio.

But we offer far more than solutions for today. Our commitment does not end when you buy a product from us. We are most effective as your trusted partner for the future, helping you work through your challenges to achieve long term value. The benefits of this long-term collaboration increase over time. The more time we spend working together, listening to your feedback, the more thoroughly we can understand your specific challenges and help resolve them

And the earlier we are involved in your product life cycle, the sooner we can work out how to optimize your product development and maximize sustainable value. 

In this way, HBK has moved beyond being simply your component provider to becoming an on-going partner within your business, developing and delivering advanced technology with your needs in mind, and ultimately helping you to maintain your competitive edge.
