Whether a retail company, industrial operation or railway engineering company, they all have one thing in common – individually specific requirements when it comes to the topic of handling.  HUBTEX offers a comprehensive modular system that has the flexibility to adapt precisely to your handling requirements in the metal industry.

The rail-mounted platform truck (GW)

The rail-mounted trucks (GW) from HUBTEX are tailored to individual customer wishes and requirements. They are designed for in-house transport on straight rails. By defining the weight classes, HUBTEX specifies the appropriate rail-wheel-to-rail combination and determines the suitable gearbox and drive motor.  Our rail-mounted truck is therefore optimally suited for the metal industry, especially when transporting heavy loads.

SBB Rail Technology Center Hägendorf

Punctual and reliable: The Deutsche Bahn rarely hears such praise. In contrast, the Swiss Federal Railways enjoy an excellent image, which is partly due to the careful maintenance of their infrastructure. Around 600 of the 13,000 switches in the more than 3,000 kilometers of rail network are replaced every year. The production of these switches and other preventive and maintenance measures are part of the range of tasks of the SBB Rail Technology Center Hägendorf (BTC).
