Drum transport

HUBTEX cable drum transporters are specially designed for the handling of heavy coils for cable and pipe systems with a load capacity up to 60 tons and are always specified to the respective application. Drums with a diameter of 5 m and a width of up to 3.5 m can be handled. The transporters are designed for indoor use and combinable outdoor use.
The special requirements include the high point load due to the small contact area of the coil flanges, the different coil widths and the individual warehouse situation.

Pipe transporter used at Brugg

Owing to the pipe drums having become heavier, both the old special transporters in use at Brugg Rohrsysteme (Switzerland) had reached their limit. The susceptibility to breakdowns increased, the downtimes were longer as well and the productivity was unsatisfactory. Therefore, Brugg commissioned the specialist from Fulda, Hubtex, to find a new solution in the form of a special machine for moving up to 12 t of heavy pipe drums. Just six months passed from the first idea, through the intermediate in-spection and up to final shipment.
