Material ropeway.

Ropeways to enable construction sites

Our cable cranes show a clear advantage for all complex construction sites – where access for heavy machinery to deliver tons of construction material and construction equipment is almost impossible.

Difficult terrain that can be opened only with large time and financial expenses building access-roads, but could reached quickly and cost-effectively through the use of our systems.
Material ropeways do not only allow a quick and safe transportation of goods to the designated points, but permit a continuous operation schedule 24/7 on throughout the whole year.

Material cable-cranes are applicable in all sorts of geographical locations – high mountains, forest, over rivers, lakes or other landscapes, but as well in all kind of climatic conditions – from snowy mountains, to rainforests and dry deserts. They can be used for almost all kind of construction sites: mountain construction sites, pipeline construction, bridge construction and in forestry.

A material ropeway is ideal for operations where a safe, fast and above all efficient transportation of heavy loads is required.

How does a material ropeway work?

Fixed cable cranes for material transport consist of a track cable fixed with anchors in the valley and the mountain that are fixing the track rope at the lowest and the highest point; towers along the track (the number of towers depend of the terrain and the distance), a hauling cable, which is pulled by a winch installed at the top, and a carriage (at the other end of the hauling cable).

By loosening or pulling the hauling cable with the winch, the carriage can be moved along the track. The carriage itself has an own engine that lifts up the loads and lowers them at the designated point. This is possible along the whole track distance and with high precision.

Heavy loads and long distances

Depending on the construction requirements (transportation goods, weight, track-length, steepness of the terrain etc.) different machinery (carriages and winches) and track equipment such as towers and ropes are used for a material ropeway. Our cable cranes can achieve the following performances

  • Heavy loads up to 25 to
  • Distances of up to 3,000 m
  • Hoist speed up to 1.5 m/s
  • Line speed up to 6 m/s.

Temporary or permanent

The cable cranes can be installed for a certain time-period and but even be a permanent solution for material transport wherever it is needed. Generally and after an accurate revision, cable cranes can be installed in another location, as basic components for cableway constructions are used.
