The new DAkkS (National Accreditation Body for the Federal Republic of Germany) Accredited Torque Calibration machine developed by HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - means HBM is now the only commercial calibration laboratory in Europe able to provide calibration in the high torque range with sufficient delivery times.

As manufacturers and users of motor test benches tend to only accept calibration certificates from accredited calibration laboratories, this can often take up to 15 months. The new Torque Calibration machine from HBM, which is used by HBM as part of its in-house accredited calibration service, significantly speeds up delivery times, which is a often a competitive factor in project management.

The new 400 kN.m torque calibration machine uses the principle reference of comparing the signal of the test specimen with that of the torque reference transducer (T10FH), which is integrated in the machine.

The HBM Torque Calibration machine is DAkkS accredited (per ISO 17025) and features a top measurement capability of 0.15 for the range of 3 kN.m (lowest step) up to 20 kN.m and of 0.1% for the range of 20 kN.m up to 400 kN.m. This means the HBM calibration facility covers almost the complete range of the torque transducer portfolio.

The new reference machine from HBM is vertically aligned and enables both clockwise and counter clockwise torque to be calibrated in compliance with the recognised standards DIN 51309 and VD1246. Featuring a proven measurement uncertainty of 0.1% and international recognition of the calibration certificates, HBM is able to provide customers with an advanced torque calibration service.

Founded in Germany in 1950, HBM is a market leader in the field of test and measurement. In 1977, the first accredited German Calibration Laboratory was based at HBM. Since then, it has become one of the best known and most capable calibration laboratories of its kind. Accredited to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 to cover the measurement quantities force calibration, pressure calibration, torque calibration and voltage ratio mV/V calibration, HBM offers calibration to DAkks standard as well as working standard traceable to ISO 10012.

Founded in Germany in 1950, HBM is today the technology and market leader in the field of test and measurement. HBM's product range comprises solutions for the entire measurement chain, from virtual to physical testing. The company has production facilities in Germany, USA and China and is represented in over 80 countries worldwide.
