How the cable car works

The ropeway is the general name given to the hanging stone which is connected between two places, which are stretched in the air, on one or several steel ropes. The ropeways work with the lift principle, but they can reach very high points from the ground floor, like a helicopter, especially when crossing the valley.

The ropeway is built between the power heights. There are also ones available on a sea or a throat. The places where the ropeways are built are very difficult or too expensive transportation by land, iron and sea. In such areas, the ropeway established between two points is used to carry out human or material transmission. The ropeways where people are transported consist of passenger cabinets hanging on steel ropes.

The ropeway systems, which are generally single direction and single rope circulation, are designed with two or more steel ropes. The other rope (s) of a rope is a carrier rope.

The ropeway systems are separated from each other by means of a clamp (Grip) which is connected to the rope.

Babylift (starting lift)
Teleski Maximum speed 2,4 m / s
Chairlift (2 / 4 / 6 with seats) Maximum line speed 3,0 m / s per second
Detachable Chairlift with automatic clamp Maximum line speed 5 m / s
Gondola with Automatic Clamp (Detachable Gondola) Maximum line speed 6 m / s
Group Gondolas (Pulsed Movement Aerial Ropeways) The highest line speed 7 m / s is usually set to speed at 3,0 m / s, since these systems are installed on short distances.
Var-Gel Type Ropeways These systems are generally used in terrain conditions and wide valleys where direct assembly is difficult. The highest line speed is 12,0 m / sec.
Combined Systems The basis of these systems is automatic clamping. General structures are designed according to chairs and gondola.
Multi-rope systems, in general, form the Var-Gel type ropeways. With a hammer and several carrier ropes, the system is used for gondola ropeway systems where the wind is high.

Some mines also use ropeway systems for material transportation.

The Norsjö Cable Car, the longest cable car in the world, operates in Norsjö, Sweden between the settlements Örträsk and Mensträsk. The length of this line, established in 1942, is 13,2 km. The journey time is 1,5 hours [1].

Turkey's longest gondola cableway in Uludağ, with Teferrüç district in bursa'dadır.yıldırım' Sarıalanyayla in Uludag was established in 1963. It is 4766 meters in length with the transfer at Kadıyayla station. The journey, which starts at an altitude of 374 m, ends at an altitude of 20 m after approximately 1634 minutes. This cable car is also Turkey's first cable car [
