OLD becomes NEW
State-of-the-art technology for older plants. To enable best performance in future as well.
Only technology at the latest state of the art is technically and economically competitive. However, outdated systems do not have to be replaced and re-constructed entirely. The Inauen-Schätti core competences include conversions and retrofitting of aerial tramways with state-of-the-art components. Some of the components of the latest compact aerial tramway generals can be installed as well to additionally reduce costs. This way, even older aerial tramways will meet the current high demands again.
Older aerial tramways often no longer comply with the latest safety requirements. Their availability suffers as well. However, you do not need to replace them entirely. If possible, we will retrofit this system with state-of-the-art standard components. As long as the building substance and infrastructure are still intact, the old drive can, for example, be replaced by a state-of-the-art standard drive module from our compact aerial tramway construction kits, including new brakes and emergency drive, to achieve best performance again.
Replacing few complex components makes it possible to easily retrofit your aerial tramway technically once it has reached a certain age. Cable sheaves, for example, used to be produced as sophisticated welded constructions. Over time, the welded seams become susceptible to fatigue cracks and have to be replaced. Older cable sheaves with steel grooves rather than rubber lining may also still be in use. In such cases, we can retrofit your aerial tramway with new cable sheaves from our standardized construction kit system virtually in the blink of an eye.
