Areas of applications

The Original from Berlin – globally unique


Baumer Hübner, former Hübner Berlin, is the Baumer Competence Center for HeavyDuty encoders in drive technology. For nearly 60 years we have been world leader in this field, setting technology benchmarks for reliable encoders, tachogenerators and speed switches.  They play to their strengths where conventional encoders fail. Their design is tailored to the application to ensure dependable operation you can rely on - at all times. 

In 1955, Hübner Berlin developed the first encoder for the steel industry, which was tacho generator TDP 5,6 designed for roller mills. Today, the worldwide unrivaled HeavyDuty portfolio comprises absolute, incremental and bearingless encoders meeting the demanding requirements in steel plants all over the world. The HeavyDuty Competence center in Berlin implements cutting-edge production technologies.
