Roller Coaster (Fairground ride)

LEBEN manufactures special shock absorbers as hydraulic emergency end stop for roller coasters, fun rides and other high speed applications.

 

Horizontally / vertically moving masses or rail vehicles with end stop:

Problem:
In vertical and horizontal rides, vehicles and passengers are endangered as a result of an uncontrolled impact on the end stop. Mechanical and constructional faults or human error can lead to this emergency situation with roller coaster

Solution:
Use of an industrial shock absorber of the S-series (COMPENSER®) as a safe end stop in an emergency situation as a safety component. (emergency end stop)

Advantage:
Reduction or prevention of damage to vehicles and passengers by using the industrial shock absorber as an end stop.

 

Pendulum (oscillating) masses at flying structures:

Problem:
Some devices, such as Ferris wheel cabins, can cause uncontrolled pendulum strikes by means of oscillation, and in extreme cases, personnel injuries.

Solution:
The pendulum movement is limited by vibration or swivel piston COMPENSER® dampers.

Advantage:
The pendulum amplitudes of the flying structures remain within the permissible range.
