About GTM

With over 70 employees at two locations in the South Hessian municipality of Bickenbach and in Prague, GTM – also known in the industry as “die Gelben” (the yellow company) – is the leading specialist for the measurement of forces and moments. GTM not only sets metrological and measurement standards worldwide, but also offers standard products for measuring forces and moments, as well as calibration and other services at a precedent-setting level. Well over 50 patents and the design of both the biggest and smallest force measurement system within the national accreditation body DAkkS, as well as the world’s most precise lever ratio measuring system underscore the outstanding expertise of GTM specialists in the field of metrology. GTM is accredited as a calibration lab for force, torque and multi-component transducers, as well as the voltage ratio of strain gauge measuring amplifiers. GTM delivers measuring systems to national institutes, calibration labs and manufacturers of force and torque transducers around the world.



High-Precision, flexibly configurable or "Engineered-To Order" Transducers and Mechanical Systems for Forces and Torques, High-Precision strain-gauge Amplifiers, as well as Turnkey Standard Machines.



GTM Measuring Transducers are used almost Universally - whether for Materials and Component Testing or for Industrial Quality and Process Control.



Physical measurements are becoming ever more precise, and transducers and the entire measurement chains ever more accurate. In this context, metrology as the "science of measurement and its applications" plays a decisive role. Find out how GTM's products, solutions and competencies help to ensure that a Newton is always a Newton, no matter where in the world the force is measured.



You can always rely on us! We are your competent, trustworthy and first point of contact when it comes to manufacturer-independent calibration of forces, moments and voltage ratios, traceability of your transducers and further development of metrological calibration procedures.
