HOERBIGER develops customized automated door actuators for automakers. In the luxury segment and for armored vehicles, even heavy reverse-hinged doors can be moved elegantly with the touch of a button thanks to servo assistance. Other fields of application include upwardly opening gullwing doors or scissor-style doors, as they can be found in sports cars. Here, electrohydraulic door actuators made by HOERBIGER set standards in operating comfort.

Depending on the customer requirements, the actuators are available as complete systems – minimizing our customers’ installation times. Power units, cylinders and valves can be customized to individual applications. In the event of an onboard power supply failure, the automated doors can still be operated manually.

In HOERBIGER we have experience in door actuation in series production since 2003 for the most demanding automotive brands.
