Portfolio fulfilling the latest technical requirements
HÜBNER articulation systems can take on heavy loads – but at the same time are lightweight and long-lived. This is also true of the new high performance universal articulation FX1000pro that is characterized by high durability and low life-cycle costs.
The portfolio has been expanded to include soft-rolling articulation systems to meet new technical requirements. The extensive product range of upper articulations also includes models featuring a pivoting articulation with wishbone connection as well as a pitching articulation with Panhard rod.
FX1000pro – high durability,
low life-cycle costs
Durable, long-lasting and with low product life-cycle costs: HÜBNER’s newly developed FX1000pro stands for the highest quality. While delivering the same high performance in operation as the previous model, it now achieves a signifi cantly longer service life. A further plus point: 98 percent of the individual components used in the radial articulation can be re-used in case of reconditioning. Due to the system‘s low breakaway torque, less wear occurs on the vehicle’s bogies and on the rails themselves. The result: Lower maintenance costs for rail vehicles and for transit system infrastructure.
Benefits of the new FX1000pro:
- Longer service life than the previous model
- Reduced wear resulting from low breakaway torque
- Corrosion-resistant steel construction: no rusting of the articulation bearing
- Fast availability of spare parts
- Modern eco-design: 98 percent of all metal components can be reused
- during reconditioning
- Perfect fit: identical interfaces and compatible dimensions for all
- known installation spaces

Pivoting articulation and pitching articulation – lightweight and flexible
For many years, upper vehicle articulation systems were mainly manufactured from cast iron parts. HÜBNER has now replaced these reliable but heavy components with a patented new design that uses sheet metal elements. This saves considerable weight. Special customer wishes such as preloaded springs or damping elements can be simply integrated when required.
