Ropeways open up new paths –

for a more efficient transport of materials

Deep valleys, steep mountains

Particularly in difficult terrain,

ropeway technology offers an

ideal transport solution.

Crossing of obstacles

The line structure with track ropes

allows for long rope spans to cross

obstacles of all kinds.


Ropeway systems have very

few moving parts along the track.

Maintenance can be conveniently

carried out in the stations.

Quiet in operation, low in CO 2


Ropeway systems are driven by electric motors

and are characterised by low noise emissions.

Protection of the environment

Small environmental impact due to

minimal space requirements on the


Bulk material or unit loads

It is possible to transport bulk material

as well as unit loads. We will choose the

right system for your needs.

Ropeways - a versatile means of transport

Ropeways can look back on a long history when it

comes to making transport easier - or even possible

- in difficult terrain. They are famous for being an

efficient and safe means to transport passengers for

example in tourism. What is less known, however, is

that they are also perfectly suited to transport materials.

Ropeways can also be combined with other proven

conveying systems, which makes for a broad range

of material transport systems for a variety of applications.

No detours - straight forward and safe

Efficient solutions don’t have to be complicated. Our

systems utilize natural topographies. They effortlessly

span precipices, cross obstacles and transport your

material safely and reliably.

The advantages of our systems

at a glance

Low friction coefficient and therefore low

operating costs

Possibility of generating energy depending

on the topographical situation

Safe transport through automatic operation

Clean design with only a small number of

moving parts for enhanced availability

Robust structures for a long service life

Reliable solution with a high availability

Stands the test of snow and heat

RopeCon ®

Proven belt conveyor technology

Flat belt with corrugated side walls

Line structure consisting of fully locked

steel wire track ropes and towers

Effortlessly spans obstacles

Minimises space requirements on

the ground

RailCon ®

Continous conveyor

Flat belt with or without corrugated

side walls

Plastic running wheels on rails:

achieves extremely low friction


Low operating costs

High throughput

Aerial ropeways

Efficient and safe means of transport

for passengers and material

Different types to meet different

transport requirements

Transport of heavy single loads

Transport of different types of goods,

or of goods and persons on the same


Different loading and unloading points

Different systems for a perfect solution

There are many different types of ropeway systems.

Therefore, they are suited for a wide range of applications.

For example, it is possible to use ropeway

technology to transport heavy single loads, or to

move up to 25,000 tons of material per hour from one

point to another.
