Taking the leading edge in technology
Semperit ropeway technology is based on over 80 years of experience in manufacturing products for ropeways, surface lifts and ropeway systems. Our years of experience combined with state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies have resulted in enormous technological advancements that have made Semperit the world leader in ropeway technology.
Our sheave and bullwheel liners are internationally renowned for their legendary Semperit quality. This quality is reflected in our first-class products, unrivalled precision in manufacturing and high reliability in high and low load ropeways. Semperit sheave and bullwheel liners prove themselves time and again in a wide range of applications in different types of ropeways. Semperit liners are used in sheaves (line, haul rope, carrying-hauling rope and curve sheaves) and bullwheels (drive, deflection bullwheels) for surface lifts, chair lifts, gondolas, cable cars, funiculars and other ropeway systems for passenger and materials transport. What’s more, they are suitable for different climatic conditions and can be used in tropical areas and deserts as well as in cold regions.
Fansipan Cable Car: a 15-minute ride up a 3,143 m mountain peak
Did you know that you can reach the 3,143-meter summit of Mount Fansipan in just 15 minutes by riding the Fansipan Cable Car? The 6-kilometer-long cable car climbs a total of 1,410 meters, setting two world records in the process.
We are proud to have supplied 284 liners for the Fansipan Cable Car. These liners dampen the vibration over the entire length of the ropeway and were specially developed for use under extreme conditions. This confirms that our rubber formula also provides the perfect solution for these kinds of demanding applications.
