About HBE GmbH Hydraulic Components.
HBE, being part of the Echterhage Group and located in the German city of Neuenrade, has been developing and producing high quality hydraulic components for the drive and fluid technology for 30 years such as bell housings, couplings, Level and temperature indicators as well as cleaning covers and other hydraulic accessories. Since the formation of the company in 1984, oil tanks have supplemented the product programme. Offering an extensive product range, highest technical quality standards and a superior level of customer support, HBE has become one of the leading manufacturers in its specific market segments. Due to the in-house modern steel construction department and the comprehensive stock levels, HBE fulfils orders quickly and at competitive prices.
The hydraulic components are applied primarily in hydraulic and drive systems as well as in machine and plant construction. Oil tanks are produced as standard series but are also designed as individual, custom-made units.
Convincingly competent, worldwide
HBE supplies its products to almost all industrial countries through distribution companies and sales partners in more than 30 countries. Our Korean Regional Director, Mr. M.H. Lee, is your competent partner and provides distribution, application expertise, quality service and technical support for the Korean market.
Quality, „Made in Germany“
Since 1996, HBE is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000. In 2012, HBE successfully implemented the newest standard DIN EN ISO 9001:2008. Furthermore, HBE is accredited as a certified welding shop according to DIN 18800 and according to §19L Federal Water Act.
SOFTEX® ES – new variants of elastic and no backlash shaft couplings
At SIMTOS 2014, HBE will exhibit its two new variants of the elastic and no backlash shaft couplings : SOFTEX® ES 6.0 and SOFTEX® ES 6.0P. The SOFTEX® coupling is a torsionally flexible and breakdown-secure three-part resistant claw coupling. Due to the elastic gear ring it is in a position to dampen shocks, torsional vibrations and noises.
As with the proven couplings of the elastic SOFTEX® series, the gear ring of the new no backlash models also has a high resistance to wear as well as a good resistance to oils, greases, a large number of solvents, ozone and climatic conditions. The operating temperatures, depending on the model of the gear ring, lie between -50° and +120°C; short-term temperature peaks up to +150°C are permitted.
With the SOFTEX® ES Type 6.0 clamping ring hubs, one is concerned with a no backlash spindle connection with high friction-fit moments. It is suitable for servo drives such as, for example, main spindles of machine tools and drives with high torque impulses such as drives for presses. By doing without feather key grooves or slotted hubs there is no resultant out-of-balance. Furthermore, the SOFTEX® ES 6.0 is characterised by great running smoothness even at high revs with 40 m/s circumferential velocity. It can be used in a potentially explosive area. With this, however, notice is to be taken with regard to friction-fit moments. As a rule, the hub is made of aluminium, the clamping ring of steel. If desired, all components are made of ST52.3 steel.
The SOFTEX® ES Type 6.0P clamping ring hubs were developed for short drill spindles on multispindle heads in machine tools. With driving speeds up to 75 m/s circumferential velocity the high-precision, no backlash shaft connections have a high running smoothness. It is also suitable for explosion safe operation. Hub and clamping ring are made from 42CrMo4 alloyed heat-treated steel.
Both new coupling variants, due to the internal clamping screws, are secure and can be quickly installed.
