Aerial Ropeway and Funiculars

Aerial Ropeway and Funiculars


HMR Voss designs, manufactures and assemblies aerial ropeways and funiculars for transport of cargo and personnel. The structures have a simple design, a high level of security, robustness, and are adapted for use in the harsh climatic conditions. 


The ropeways are driven by Voss winch, which can be adapted to the different drives and control systems. The cable cars are delivered with thyrisor or frequency control, previously they were also supplied with slip ring and commutator motor. The control systems are PLC based or relay based, with or without integrated radio controls. The ropeways can be remote controlled from the carriage and also be equipped with auxiliary drive systems. Funiculars for passenger transport are equipped with modern design cabins from high quality specialised OEM manufactures like CWA or Gangloff.


All systems are designed with a high level of safety, where all the security features have redundancy.
