A special version of the Hubwerk includes a braking device which enables quicker successive striking. Melodic chiming of the bells is thereby rendered possible.

Motorized Bell Striker (Hubwerk)

The Hubwerk can strike any bell from 100 to 5000 kg in weight. This model with a cast-iron casing consists of a central gear which revolves within a liquid bath of high-intensity oil. This mechanism is waterproof and, as such, resistant to all dust and grime. Its sturdy construction makes for top class performance, be it in cold winter weather or in extreme summer heat. The Hubwerk will deliver more than one million strikes without any obvious wear and tear.
Our bell strikers perform flawlessly for all round-the-clock quarter-hourly and hourly striking of tower bells. Please consult us for any other questions.
