The line profile is that part of a ropeway that is most affected by topographical conditions. It is therefore important to develop a highly adaptable product to ensure that the potential of an installation is not dictated by the lie of the land but by the relevant regulations.
Each tower of a LEITNER line is engineered, designed and manufactured according to the specific topographical and mechanical requirements of the project. The combination of the different tube diameters and wall thicknesses as well as the separation of the tower into individual sections can be modified as requested. As the tower height is manufactured to centimeter accuracy, customers are provided with the highest level of flexibility. At the same time, the best line profile with regard to the topographical conditions can always be achieved without having to adapt the excess length of the foundation. The use of standard tubes ensures rapid manufacturing and replacement.
The combination of different pipe diameters, wall thicknesses as well as separations can be modified as requested and perfectly adapted to the static requirements of the special tower. The use of standard components for tubular towers ensures rapid manufacturing and short restocking times. A special tower can therefore be installed almost as fast as a standard tubular tower. Although it needs only a small base area, the special central tower with Y-head permits high tower heights and is therefore ideal for urban use.
High flange extension beyond the roller lining and maximum groove depth guarantee the highest level of deropement protection. The biaxial setting of the roller batteries ensures their optimal integration into the axis of the rope. Thanks to the high roller pressure of the LEITNER roller batteries, the number of rollers can be reduced, which consequently saves maintenance and spare parts costs. The rubber mixture of the LEITNER rollers results in minimal flexing and therefore in a considerable reduction of the required drive power of the installation.
With regard to the cable position, the LEITNER CPS ensures the highest level of safety and availability of the installation. As soon as the cable leaves the groove of the roller, it is reliably corrected with the help of the CPS. The application of the safety bus system requires minimal wiring. The safety bus system also detects malfunctions of individual sensors, allows a selective bypass of all sensors and therefore reduces the required replacement measures to a minimum.
