Doppelmayr Transport Technology provides solutions for all types of bulk material and unit load transport requirements with a wide range of technically proven material transport systems. Its systems are especially well suited for difficult terrain and allow to span existing obstacles, while occupying little ground space and thus keeping the system’s footprint low.
The company is a 100 percent subsidiary of the Doppelmayr Group. Austrian family enterprise Doppelmayr is technology leader and pioneer in ropeway engineering and has built more than 14,500 passenger and material transport systems in over 88 countries. Customers from all over the world rely on Doppelmayr systems to transport their bulk material and unit loads. Within the Group, Doppelmayr Transport Technology specialises in material handling solutions.
Doppelmayr acts as a one-stop provider: from planning, design, production and installation to operation and after-sales service – all comes from one source. Right from the start, the company works closely with its customers in order to achieve perfect integration of its systems into the natural landscape or existing or planned infrastructure. Highly skilled specialists ensure a swift and effective installation work on site and, thus, keep the impact on the environment and the customers’ day-to-day operations to a minimum. After handing over an installation, a closely knit network of service points provides reliable support in all countries where Doppelmayr installations are in operation.
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.
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.
