Economical, compact, self-propelled: Hubtex is developing new platform transporters for load capacities of 25 t, 40 t and 65 t with the SF-X series. The compact, self-propelled vehicles for indoor and outdoor use have a large loading area for transporting bulky, heavy loads. Thanks to its modular design, the cost-effective base of the transporter can be equipped with various steering systems or platform lift and thus be expanded into an AGV.
The portfolio of the leading manufacturer of special-purpose industrial trucks will include the new SFX models for the load capacity ranges 25 t (SFX-25), 40 t (SFX-40) and 65 t (SFX-60) from July 2021. Cross-series vehicle components and the addition of AGV functions make the series suitable for most customer requirements. Typical areas of application are found in in-plant heavy-duty transport in the automotive and aviation industries and especially along the value chain of the metal industry, from foundry to trade to processing, for example in mechanical engineering.
The handling of long, heavy and bulky loads is the core expertise of HUBTEX Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG. For at the beginning of 2020, the company is planning to launch for the first time an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) specially designed for handling long goods.
In 2019, Fulda-based company Hubtex won the international FLTA Award 2019 in the category "Ergonomics" with its MaxX electric multidirectional sideloader. The award is presented annually by the British Fork Lift Truck Association in Telford (UK). In addition, the MaxX also received the “Best in Intralogistics” certificate for 2019 as part of the IFOY Awards.
Frontlifts are often the vehicle of choice when handling heavy loads, but when used in tight spaces, they quickly come up short. Providing a robust and manoeuvrable solution to this challenge is the RoxX, a line of heavy-duty compact frontlifts supplied by Hubtex.
The handling of timber materials poses major challenges for manufacturers of forklifts and industrial trucks. Innovative solutions are required to ensure the safe transport of long, heavy and bulky goods, especially on uneven surfaces and in tight aisles. Hubtex has expanded the field of application of its FluX model, with the electrical multidirectional sideloader now able to handle loads weighing up to 7 tonnes.
As global air traffic continues to increase, so too does the need for aircraft. In the field of aircraft construction and maintenance, there is a high level of demand for smart solutions that ensure efficient work processes and thus help to reduce production and maintenance costs. This is where Hubtex comes in with its mobile material lifter and supply platform from the EPL series.
