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).

Things worth knowing about heavy-duty vehicles
Our answers to your questions

Are there coil transporters, platform trucks and rail cars available as AGVs?

The transport of coils is one of the typical tasks for manufacturers of metal strips and wire in intralogistics. Typically, platform and track wagons are often used for this purpose. Alternatively, HUBTEX offers special coil transporters or electric traction heads as well as heavy duty compact forklifts. These vehicle types form the basis for automated processes. HUBTEX relies on a modular construction kit with automated functions, assistance systems and safety components that are gradually being integrated into series production vehicles. This includes, for example, automatic positioning which navigates the operator directly in front of the correct shelf compartment after entering the desired position. HUBTEX has already anticipated the step-by-step automation with assistance systems: In the basic construction of the vehicles, cable routes, holders and sensors are pre-planned, with which the devices can also be automated later on.
