HCT - Hoffmann Group Connected Tools Platform

The Hoffmann Group Connected Tools Platform (HCT)

Optimise processes with Bluetooth®-enabled tools

Do you still write your measurement data on a piece of paper and put it in a folder or do you manually type measurement data into the computer? The open HCT platform makes this a thing of the past! HCT uses state-of-the-art Bluetooth®-enabled tools and innovative apps to automatically transfer measurement data to smartphones, tablets and computers, meaning you can work faster, more effectively, and more accurately than before. Discover Hoffmann Group Connected Tools today!

Here's how it works:

Measurement data is precisely collected and stored with the Bluetooth®-enabled tools. The measurement data can then be transferred to a computer, tablet or smartphone wirelessly. Save valuable time when transferring, checking and recording your measurement data thanks to the very straightforward application. If you want to make your production processes even more efficient, you can add a number of useful functions to your HCT tools with our HCT apps.

HCT revolutionises your measurement processes

Zeitersparnis dank einfacher Dokumentation


Simple recording of information saves time. At the push of a button, the measuring result is transmitted directly to your application (such as Excel or Word) or to the app. From there, you export the test report directly to your database.

Mehr Bewegungsfreiheit


More freedom to move. No more annoying data transmission cables thanks to Bluetooth® technology.

Höchste Zuverlässigkeit


The utmost reliability, without reading errors or transmission errors.

The right solution for every application

Andreas, Head of Work Planning

"I want to make the measurement processes in a production line more efficient and record measured data reliably. I don't need a full system costing thousands of euros for that. I'm looking for simple software which features worker guidance and the option to automatically transfer all device settings and measuring results to the computer, or for a direct transfer to a CAQ system (using standard protocols and data formats)."

Stefan, Foreman

"I want to keep track of things and organise multiple tool groups quickly and easily from my smartphone. I also want to set up different tools on my smartphone and get all the measurement data on my smartphone, simply and clearly."

Heinz, Master Measurement Technician

"I want to take a measurement and I have to record it digitally. But I'm not familiar with all this new-fangled stuff. I want to get started right away and take the measurement quickly and easily, the same as usual."

Verena, Quality Assurance

"Since cables interfere with the acquisition of measured data, we want to switch over to wireless solutions in the Quality Control department. However, the production process must not change as we use CAQ software – it took a long time to set it up and train all employees. Therefore, smooth and gradual integration using standard file formats and interfaces is essential."
