Since 1993 Hildebrand develop, produce and distribute Hardness Testers for elastomers, plastics and non-metallic materials. Additional test equipment e.g. Tihckness Gauges and Densimeters complete our product range.

We produce - with our high skilled employees - in our facility in Oberboihingen. To ensure the high quality of our products, we make tests in our climate-controlled quality assurance room for the hardness of "Shore and IRHD". Our measuring devices in our quality assurance room fully corresponds to national and international standards.
