How to combine highest safety with comfortable use?

Ropeways are used not only to carry people but also to transport materials. Various ropeway systems are used in practice. Today, ropeways are not only used in ski regions but are increasingly being used for passenger transport in urban spaces.

The gear units in this kind of application obviously have to comply with a number of special requirements: all passenger conveyance systems are subject to very strict safety criteria. The units are exposed to significant variations in temperature and operate almost continuously from the minute they are put into service. For this reason, FLENDER gear units for ropeways are not only compact but also noise- and weight-optimized. They are made with geared parts of the highest quality and extra-strong sealing elements. FLENDER gear units and services are available worldwide.
