Gearboxes for Ropeways

Ropeways for urban transportation will continue to gain significance. Passengers do not want to wait long, but instead they want to be carried quickly, comfortably and safely. The cableway operator also knows this. He expects high conveying performance and availability from his lift drive. The low-maintenance ZF gearboxes are extremely reliable.
