HBM reference book offers overview of using torque transducers
Measuring torque correctly
HBM technical experts Rainer Schicker and Dr Georg Wegener have written a 272-page reference book, Measuring torque correctly, which is designed to offer a clear overview of all essential aspects of using torque transducers.
The book describes principle options for torque measurement and deals with the design and application of torque transducers most commonly used today.
The principal methods for measuring torque are described, along with information on how to address and solve problems arising in everyday applications.

HBM has introduced the T40FM torque flange that has been redesigned to measure torques of up to 80kNm, while offering greater precision and reproducibility in roller, diesel engine and transmission test benches.
HBM has launched the AED9101C-Z2/22 digital transducer electronics designed for a range of applications where weighing technology is needed in potentially explosive atmospheres, including those in the chemical and petrochemical industries, as well as packaging systems in mills.
HBM has introduced ExpressDAQ measuring amplifiers, which can be used in force, temperature and voltage applications and measurement tasks.
HBM has made a number of improvements to its established TB2 torque reference transducer range, to ensure it continues to meet the needs for very high-precision results delivered quickly.
Two new variants of HBM’s CFW piezoelectric force washers have been launched to provide nominal (rated) forces of 100kN and 190kN in dynamic measurement tasks.
