Ropeway technology for material transport
Reliable transport does not only mean to bring material from point A to point B. Other aspects such as the environmental footprint, the reduction of noise, dust and CO2 emissions or increased safety for workers and the surroundings become ever more important.
Doppelmayr Transport Technology addresses these topics and provides solutions for all types of bulk material and unit load transport requirements with a wide range of technically proven material transport systems. It's systems, such as ropeways and the RopeCon® are especially well suited for difficult terrain and allow to span existing obstacles. The company is a 100 percent subsidiary of the Doppelmayr Group. The Austrian family enterprise was founded in 1893 and has established a long tradition of excellence in ropeway engineering. Doppelmayr has built more than 15,000 passenger and material transport systems in 95 countries.
Doppelmayr Transport Technology offers various types of ropeway systems. Ropeways are capable of spanning valleys effortlessly, crossing obstacles and transporting their load safely and reliably. They make use of natural topographies and the different types of ropeways allow choosing the perfect answer for a wide range of transport challenges. Ropeways can transport different materials at the same time. It is even possible to combine freight and passenger transport. They also enable different loading and unloading points as well as simultaneous transport in both directions. Depending on the ropeway system, transport capacities of up to 500 t/h or heavy single loads can be achieved. Being elevated systems, ropeways occupy little ground space and minimize environmental impact.
RopeCon® is Doppelmayr’s innovative concept for conveying bulk material. It combines the advantages of proven ropeway engineering with continuous conveyor technology. The system consists of a continuous flat belt with corrugated side walls. The haulage function is performed by the belt and is fixed to axles at regular intervals. These axles support the belt and have running wheels fitted to either end which run on track ropes. The track ropes are elevated off the ground and guided over tower structures. This enables RopeCon® to easily cross obstacles such as roads, valleys, rivers and buildings. RopeCon® achieves conveying capacities of up to 25,000 t/h, while having a minimum structural footprint as it is an elevated system.
Doppelmayr Company is an Exhibitor of the 25th Anniversary Exhibition of Mining & Metals Central Asia – Central Asian international Mining Exploration & Mining Equipment Exhibition. Visit the company's stand you can on September 18-20 from 10:00 to 18:00, Atakent Exhibition Center, Almaty.
