Service & installation
When it comes to service and installation, TEUFELBERGER relies only on the best - our in-house specialists.
The provision of high performance steel wire ropes custom-tailored to your specific needs is a fundamental prerequisite for a lasting and successful business relationship. However, TEUFELBERGER also provides additional services that render the construction or upkeep of a ropeway system significantly easier.
We are your competent service partner and will provide you help and answers within 24 hours!
1. We support you in project planning along with choosing the right rope construction.
TEUFELBERGER is a supplier of solutions. Already in the project phase, our rope experts can contribute their valuable knowledge on ropeway systems to the project planning.
In this context, defining the optimum rope construction is a decisive aspect providing for best possible running smoothness and a long service life and keeping unexpected additional costs at a minimum.
2. We optimize transport logistics and support you in carrying out your heavy haulage
TEUFELBERGER gets you to the top reliably and safely. Thanks to our decades of experience in transporting heavyweight rope reels, we are able to assist our customers actively and effectively in handling this very important part of the project. Therefore, we take care of the heavy haulage of your ropeway ropes, taking them up the mountain to the desired terminal.
On September 30 and October 1, 2015, we delivered the first four carrying ropes for the 3S Eisgratbahn ropeway on the Stubai Glacier, in cooperation with the transport company Spiegl. Four more carrying ropes and two hauling ropes followed in spring 2016. During the transport taking place in the fall, carrying ropes weighing 200 tons in total had to be taken to a sea level of 2300 meters, negotiating a gradient of approx. 30 %. For this heavy haulage a truck/trailer combination generating 1,800 HP was required.
3. We take care of installing the ropes
We rely only on the best. Therefore, we have the specialists for installation jobs and operations right in our house. More than 600 installation assignments worldwide per year qualify us to perform the highly complex installation of ropeway ropes. Our large team of 7 fitters is at your beck and call around the clock.
We install your steel wire ropes, such as:
- Ropes for ropeways
- Ropes for cranes
- Ropes for indoor cranes
- Ropes for offshore applications
- Winch ropes, etc.
Pulling of the rope
In order to install carrying ropes, hauling ropes or carrying-hauling ropes in ropeway or gondola facilities, rope pulling is required. For ropes with diameters from 8.5 to 110 mm, rope pulling is carried out by ourselves or our certified rope pulling experts. Rope installations require the appropriate pulling lines, which are also included in TEUFELBERGER’s product portfolio. For our pulling lines, please click here.
On tensioning, the rope is first pulled, then tensioned. Afterwards it can be spliced. Up to weights of 70 tons, tensioning is carried out by our TEUFELBERGER fitters. Weights bigger than this are tackled by our professional partner companies for rope pulling on site.
We’ll be happy to splice your hauling ropes and carrying-hauling ropes! Whether short splice or long splice, our fitters are on duty worldwide day after day, and they are real professionals in this domain.
