Now available from HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – is the BU18 build-up system, which has been developed to measure or calibrate large compressive forces as a smaller and less expensive alternative to existing direct loading machines.
Featuring an accuracy class of 00 per ISO376, the BU18 offers precise calibrations, even for mobile purposes. Suitable for a variety of applications, the BU18 can also be used to check material testing machines or force transducers with high precision on-site.
The modular design of the BU18 offers users significant practical advantages for system assembly. All system components can be removed individually and are clearly marked for ease of assembly. Moreover, significantly lighter than any other comparable 3MN force transducer in its class, the built in system can also be easily fitted and removed by one person, offering valuable time saving properties.
The BU18 from HBM is suitable for use in a wide range of equipment such as test benches. In addition, the three 1MN force transducers can be used independently as stand-alone reference force transducers.
HBM build-up systems have been successfully used in many prestigious research projects over the world with the objective of deducing behaviour of systems connected in parallel with the help of the results obtained in individual calibration.
