Industrial Gearbox Repair Team

ZF gearboxes for ropeway systems reliably provide the circulation of cable-drawn lift systems such as classical chair and gondola lifts or urban transport and shuttle systems.

ZF gearboxes are reliable drive components, proven and tested in rope-guided transport systems under various operational conditions: no matter if under icy temperatures during ski lift operation or in tropical heat inside urban shuttle systems. Due to a flexible modular system a wide range of transmission and dimensional variants as well as torque classes is available and ideally suited for a large number of different ropeway systems. ZF gearboxes for ropeways are extremely compact, noise-optimised and combine longevity with a low maintenance effort. All gearboxes are characterized by silent operation and high robustness. The high quality of the individual components ensures a long life cycle with the highest possible operating reliability.
