Constant lubrication of cable cars thanks to simalube

Oftentimes, maintenance operation takes place outdoors - on meter-high poles - which is a difficult task for the maintenance engineer. Extreme temperature fluctuations as well as frost, snow, dirt and moisture make it especially challenging for the machine to run smoothly. A continuous supply of the lubrication points is therefore indispensable, as without regular maintenance, the parts quickly wear or corrode. As a result, significant malfunctions may arise leading to costly repair and maintenance work.

  • Complex lubrication as the lubrication points can only be reached with great effort
  • Large temperature fluctuations seasonally, but also day - night


  • simalube lubricators
  • Special accessories in tight spaces
