With precision and reliability to the top

Tacho generators in drives of mountain railways and ski lifts are exposed to enormous strain. Nevertheless, they must perform for precise and reliable speed measurement. This is why manufacturers rely on HeavyDuty solutions from Baumer Hübner. What does it take for a tacho generator to withstand the rough conditions on snow-covered mountains? Every day and Read more about With precision and reliability to the top[…]

Not spoilt for choice – HeavyDuty encoders in crane and lifting applications

Baumer Hübner has established the class of extraordinarily resilient and reliable HeavyDuty encoders and offers a broad portfolio. Manufacturers of cranes and hoists are among the most frequent users of such sensors. And for good reason: These applications are most demanding and here they can play to their strengths – robustness, precision, resistance and longevity.
