Expertise that speaks for itself

HÜBNER develops and produces high-performance components that are essential for every railway vehicle. Particularly well known are its gangway systems for trams, metros, subways and suburban railways as well mainline trains and high-speed trains. In the preceding decades, HÜBNER has made outstanding developments in the production of high-performance gangway systems. Thanks to this demonstrated expertise, the company is the global leader in this area.

The requirements for these products are high: The folding and corrugated bellows and other components must have excellent flame resistance, very good sound insulation, overall resilience and above all a long service life – under constant demanding use. Finally, any rail vehicle is only as safe as the gangways that connect its various segments. In addition to the safety aspects, the comfort and convenience provided to passengers is being continually improved with new gangway developments. Important developments are the flexible and rollable side walls, a product portfolio of materials in accordance with fire safety standard EN 45545 as well as lightweight articulations and wind fairing systems for more energy efficiency in rail transport.

HÜBNER develops customized solutions for each customer with individual passageway widths and special designs. This is expertise that speaks for itself. Worldwide.

Products for buses

We build 1.60 meters of the bus

Without HÜBNER, articulated buses would be missing something –  exactly 1.6 meters right in the middle of the bus! 1.6 meters equipped with the latest technology and engineering solutions. HÜBNER provides complete, ready-to-install connection systems for all types of articulated and bi-articulated buses in low-floor and high-floor models. These systems include the articulation system, the folding bellows, power connection components, electronic articulation control and components for the bus interior.

The name HÜBNER and the best in bus engineering have had a long and successful association over many years. The first folding bellows for articulated buses were produced by HÜBNER in 1952 – followed by a continuous series of groundbreaking innovations.

These included the first low-floor articulation in regular series production, the first redundant articulation damping system, and more recently the new articulation family HNGK 19.5, which stands out with its distinctively lightweight design, as well as the world's first halogen-free folding bellows.

For persons with disabilities, HÜBNER Transportation GmbH produces customized, user-friendly ramps and lifts for convenient vehicle entry. These bus entry systems eliminate mobility barriers and fulfill the highest safety and quality requirements.

Products for airport technology

Boarding completed

Many leisure and business trips get started with HÜBNER. Connection systems produced by the company make it possible for passengers to enter planes safely and comfortably via the passenger boarding bridge – at airports around the world.

HÜBNER produced the first folding canopies for passenger boarding bridges in 1971. Since then, the family-owned company has delivered more than 5,000 of these high-performance units. What makes them so special is that they can flexibly adjust to nearly every sort of commercial aircraft – from small regional planes to the jumbo Airbus A380. The patented HÜBNER kinematic system allows for gap-free docking with the passenger boarding bridge. Elastic bumpers provide an optimal seal between the folding canopy and the aircraft, protecting passengers against any type of weather that might be encountered.

Again and again HÜBNER innovations have brought advances in airport technology. One such innovation is the Passenger Boarding Bridge Interface (PBBI) 2.0 – a complete system consisting of a fixed frame mounted on the cabin of the passenger boarding bridge, an adjustable tilt-correction mechanism, the folding canopy and a touchless sliding floor element that can pivot symmetrically in both directions. Customers who order the PBBI 2.0 together with the Optical Auto Leveler (OAL) from HÜBNER receive a complete bridgehead system from a single source that can be flexibly mounted on all passenger boarding bridges.

New standards in airport technology are also being set by HÜBNER's modular passenger weather protection and guidance system. It allows for a perfect connection across the airport apron from the terminal to an airplane, providing passengers with a clear way to follow and secure weather protection.

For all the requirements of a commercial vehicle

Commercial vehicles are there to transport persons and goods safely from point A to point B. No matter how far, and always as efficiently as possible. Components for this class of vehicles therefore need to be lightweight and robust and at the same time be economical to purchase and to maintain. Products of the HÜBNER Group fulfill all of these demands. For customers that means favorable procurement costs, low fuel consumption, long service life as well as high efficiency and safety.

 

As part of the HÜBNER Group, the HEMSCHEIDT Fahrwerktechnik GmbH & Co. KG develops and produces high-performance components especially designed for the demands of commercial vehicles: These include special the special trailer air suspension system for 9-ton axles, the hydropneumatic suspension system with load-adjusting damping as well as axle guides in many different forms. The products facilitate problem-free and comfortable operation even with extreme loads or in difficult terrain.

The latest addition to the HÜBNER product range in the truck and trailer segment are high-safety electronic control units units for commercial vehicles that prevent malfunctions with electronic components. These devices have been developed by the company ECUtronic GmbH that was established in 2018 growing out of a cooperation between HÜBNER and Fraunhofer IVI. These newly developed units will fulfill the requirements of ISO Standard 26262, which in future will apply to commercial vehicles and will entail significant increases in safety standards.
