For this first time this year, the HÜBNER GmbH & Co. KG with its Bus and Service divisions will present together with its affiliated companies HEMSCHEIDT and HÜBNER Transportation (HTG) with all companies at a common booth in Hannover. The important point for visitors: HÜBNER can be found in Hall 26 at Booth D51. A new place that brings together all the different aspects of the HÜBNER Group.
The new compact articulation – ready for regular production
At the busworld Istanbul, the prototype was presented. Now the articulation is ready for regular production. The new compact articulation HNG 24.2 combines the proven lateral axis position featured in the 19.5 articulation family and its passenger-friendly platform concept with the hydraulic technology of the preceding SKD 420 model that has provided great performance over many years. The new system is distinguished by its compact design, its simple assembly and its insensitivity to dirt and soiling. This makes it especially attractive for markets that need to have uncomplicated, highly functional solutions. The integrated articulation damping element requires no maintenance and is very resistant to breakdown. The articulation system is designed so that all of the important moving parts are located in an oil bath so that they run with virtually no wear. The interfaces are comparable with those of universal articulations enabling an easy integration into existing chassis concepts.
Start of series production for the award-winning air suspension system from HEMSCHEIDT Fahrwerktechnik
HEMSCHEIDT Fahrwerktechnik, specialist for chassis components, hydropneumatic suspension systems, turntables as well as shock absorbers in the commercial vehicle segment, is presenting a fully developed air suspension system for trailer axels at the IAA Commerical Vehicle exhibition. The system is made up of the spring link, an innovative three-part rubber-metal bearing in the front eye of the spring link as well as the mechanical clamping device that enables all-position axle connections. It is wear-free and perfectly designed for the dynamic driving requirements of the commercial vehicle segment. At the TRAILER INNOVATION AWARDS 2015, the innovative air suspension system was awarded third place in the chassis category. Now just 24 months after presentation of the innovative air suspension system at the 2014 IAA Commercial Vehicles exhibition, HEMSCHEIDT Fahrwerktechnik has succeeded with the series launch of the component.
Dr. Mark Wöhrmann, Managing Director of HEMSCHEIDT Fahrwerktechnik GmbH & Co. KG, commented: "The successful series production realization shows that our engineering team has hit the bull's eye with this development. And it also proves that in addition to our traditional products for special applications we can also deliver compatible and robust products for mass market needs. For us this success is an important step on the way to becoming a system supplier for innovative vehicle solutions in the truck and trailer industry."
In addition to the air suspension, HEMSCHEIDT is also presenting new solutions in the hydropneumatic field and the light axle guide for tractor units.
Trend-setting entry systems
Our affiliated company HÜBNER Transportation GmbH (HTG) is also working on some exciting new concepts. The electric ramp IL standard has been part of the HTG product range for years and is well-established on the market. Now the company has developed a number of enhancements for the product which focus on customer wishes. With the new developments, the IL standard is even more user-friendly than before – not only because of enhancements in its plug-and-play aspects. Ease of service has also been an important focal point. The ramp is the ideal retrofitting solution for buses that should be equipped with an integrated ramp system.
