Cable Cars and Mountain Railways

The maintenance of cable cars and mountain railways places high demands on the operations managers. The operating conditions are considered to be harsh, since the maintenance is often carried out outdoors (e.g. on meter-high masts) and the extreme temperature fluctuations, dirt, frost, snow and wetness cause problems for the systems. A continuous supply of the lubrication points is therefore essential. The maintenance and correct supply of lubrication points have a direct impact on the economy of cableways, mountain railways, cogwheels and drag lifts.
