HUBTEX Maschinenbau GmbH & Co.KG., which is based in Fulda, makes customized industrial trucks, side loaders and special equipment for heavy and bulky materials. The electrically powered HUBTEX multiway side loader with load ranges from 1.5 – 50.0 tons is a typical example of their equipment.

It can easily manage bar stock material, sheet packs, particle board, tools, cable drums, rollers, and oversized pallets whether they are located in narrow-aisle racking installations or freely accessible indoor and outdoor areas.

If lift heights are very high, or when the driver is unable to see the exact fork inclination in the rack, the F99 inclination sensor from Pepperl+Fuchs can easily solve the problem.The F99 inclination sensor is mounted to the mast of the electric multiway side loader and transmits the fork inclination to the HUBTEX Information Terminal in the driver’s cab.

The driver in the cab can select the predefined lift height at the touch of a button and store up to 99 positions. He is aware at all times of the exact fork inclination. The inclination sensor and the HUBTEX Information Terminal speed up the storage and retrieval of the goods in the racks and the loading and unloading of trucks. The system guarantees increased levels of safety at work and ensures that goods are not damaged.
