LABSON ofereix solucions tecnològiques en el camp de l'automatització de maquinària i processos industrials. En els últims anys ha desenvolupat tecnologies com: disseny de components oleohidràulics (p.ex.: cilindres hidràulics d'altes prestacions, suspensions oli-pneumàtiques per a vehicles pesants, sistemes d'accionament de panells solars de grans dimensions, minicomponents oleohidràulics)

LABSON ha realitzat un ampli ventall de serveis que cobreixen les demandes de les empreses nacionals i internacionals. Realitza estudis teòrics i de simulació numèrica orientats a la investigació aplicada i que compta amb l'avantatge d'un fort suport experimental en l'àmbit de l'enginyeria de fluids, incloent metodologia PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry).
