Actuators for rope-hauled transportation systems

MecVel is in the linear automation industry since 1987, manufacturing electric linear actuators suitable also for ski lifts and rope-hauled transportation systems, cabins in particular.

These are the handlings performed with these electromechanical devices and the solutions proposed by these technologies:

  • • Ski lifts and rope-hauled transportation systems cabins: operation of switching the cabin on a secondary rail for maintenance or storage

The electric linear actuator allows the automation of the cabin separation from the main rail. This operation is needed to move the cabin on a secondary rail and transport it to the maintenance area, where it can be also stored during the closure time of the ski lift or the rope-hauled transportation system.


Ski lifts and rope-hauled transportation systems using these automation devices are the most efficient and innovative. The electric linear actuator  simplifies the handlings required by operators and allows them to preserve the structure of the cabin, placing them in the warehouse when they are not in use.

The activation of the switch is performed safely and reliably even with particular climatic conditions such as low temperatures, snow, rain or wind.

In addition to MecVel electric linear actuators, constantly updated to satisfy a wide range of applications, the customization service of the company has the purpose to tailor each product in all its technical parts.
