PINTSCH BUBENZER is focused on the design, production and service of high quality braking systems for both static and dynamic applications which involve the precise control of small to very large amounts of kinetic energy. The challenge is to control that energy in the most efficient, cost-effective way.
PINTSCH BUBENZER is a full-line, high quality braking systems supplier which is well-positioned to service the container handling, shipbuilding, offshore, mining, steel and wind industries world-wide. The production facilities complement each other, and are supported by synergies in research and development capabilities. Additional synergies in the areas of installation, sales and service will help to strengthen PINTSCH BUBENZER’s competitive position.
Cranes for material handling
In the application segment of port engineering, PINTSCH BUBENZER has worked very closely together with port operators and consultants as well as crane manufacturers and chandlers internationally for many years. The global application know-how built up in this way secures continuous improvements in the quality-determining criteria for all participating parties and enables us to develop our products, technologies and services still further to the highest level in a manner suitable for real-work situations.
Ship & offshore
As a result of factors such as temperature variations, storms, contact with saltwater, flooding and downtimes, marine applications place the very highest qualitative demands on the braking systems used in respect of their design, the materials used, manufacturing, installation and surface protection. Thus corrosion resistance and absolute waterresistance (up to IP 67) coupled at the same time with the ability for maintenance to be carried out in a simple manner – literally with what is on board – are among the mandatory criteria. Brakes and braking systems from PINTSCH BUBENZER have been setting the standard on ships of different sizes and classes as well as on ocean giants since 1935 and are today the first selection for many well-known ship's chandlers and offshore-engineering manufacturers.
Whether by surface or underground mining, generally millions of tons of material must be moved in order to extract targeted raw materials or minerals. Indeed, it is not uncommon that mountains are literally moved in mining operations. The often gigantic tunnel boring and cleaning machines, conveyor systems, bucket wheel excavators, special vehicles, material grading and separating systems, etc are often in service 24 hours/day, for years. PINTSCH BUBENZER has been meeting the special challenges set by the specialty manufacturers of these machines, systems and vehicles for many years and today is rated world-wide one of the leading development partners and system suppliers. In close co-operation with the manufacturers of mining equipment, PINTSCH BUBENZER Engineering is always providing solutions to operational and safety braking challenges.
High ambient temperatures and dust-filled air are typical environmental conditions associated with the processing of steel. This environment places tough demands on the drive systems and brakes used in steel making facilities. Hot metal, semi-automated rolling mill and overhead loading cranes require the most reliable, maintenance-friendly braking systems available. The engineers and designers at PINTSCH BUBENZER possess decades of experience on such applications for the steel industry and know the problem zones and pitfalls of such applications back to front.
PINTSCH BUBENZER offers wind turbine manufacturers and wind farm operators innovative braking systems for rotor, azimuth and rotor-locking motions, utilizing efficiently designed disc brakes, clutches and hydraulic systems. The well thought-out design of all system components and the high and constant quality standards maintained in production, installation and final acceptance ensure smooth and reliable operation, minimum expenditure for maintenance and long service lives. With quality products from PINTSCH BUBENZER investors save trouble, time and costs over the full useful life of their systems and increase thereby their profits in a long-term manner. In addition, our optional brake monitoring systems further reduce downtime and maintenance expense by identifying minor adjustment and wear issues before they become serious maintenance problems. This is an especially important enhancement for offshore wind farms.

World’s tallest buildings trust AlimakHek
Wherever you find the world’s tallest buildings and structures, you will also find AlimakHek. AlimakHek understands the need for tall building contractors to constantly maximize assets and turn projects around faster at lower costs. High productivity saves time and money. Fleet owners want low cost of ownership, which is what AlimakHek strives to deliver.
The company has helped solve what were once considered insurmountable site logistic problems, on many of the world’s tallest buildings and structures. For example, in the mid-1960s, Alimak construction hoists were used during slip forming of the 170-meter high Kaknäs tower in Stockholm, Sweden. Since then, AlimakHek has safely powered access on many of the tallest buildings on the planet today, including providing construction hoists with lifting heights of 450 meters for the construction of the CN-tower in Toronto, Canada. This earned AlimakHek a place in the record books as supplying the world´s highest construction hoists. Currently, AlimakHek mast climbing hoists are providing access to the highest reaches of the Abraj Al Bait Towers, in Mecca, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which will stretch 601 meters when completed.
AlimakHek products and solutions are used for vertical access when constructing the world's tallest buildings, longest bridges, largest industrial facilities and general infrastructure.
Our construction hoist product line delivers fast, economical and reliable transport of material and people across the entire construction industry – new buildings, industrial complexes, renovations, chimneys, towers and bridges are all constructed using AlimakHek equipment. Any professional construction company recognizes the need for site productivity and uptime – a need that AlimakHek fully reflects in both design and support of delivered equipment. An important part of the equation is also technical application support where AlimakHek’s long-term experience often brings unique solutions to complex problems. One example would be common infrastructure for both hoists and platforms which saves cost and boost productivity.
All of our platform solutions deliver results in terms of saved cost, better scheduling and improved sequencing of construction activities. Replacing all or part of conventional scaffolding with mast climbing work platforms, construction companies can work at the required height with all the materials needed for a full day’s work at the touch of a button. Higher productivity, improved working conditions and security at a job site are just a few of the benefits.
Ports and Shipyards
Since 1971, Alimak elevators have been used by global port authorities as access elevators for ship to shore cranes as well as RTGs and RMGs. Alimak crane elevators are installed in almost 100 countries throughout the world. Why a crane elevator?
1. Availability: Experience shows that the installation of access elevators results in more efficient maintenance and, consequently, less downtime. Additional savings are realized because tools and exchange parts are carried in the elevator car, thus eliminating waiting time. Another benefit is the reduction of breakdowns as the elevator has facilitated preventive maintenance. A leading shipping company says our elevators have reduced crane maintenance and downtime by up to 25%.
2. Productivity: Without an elevator, maintenance personnel and crane operators must climb ladders. To get to the top of an ordinary container crane takes about 15–20 minutes of hard work which does not encourage frequent maintenance and inspection. Moreover, parts and tools required for repairs and exchange have to be lifted by means of winches or similar devices – all time consuming operations. In an elevator, the ride to the top takes less than two minutes.
3. Safety: Although it is difficult to put a price tag on safety, the risks associated with ladders, especially in bad weather, are obvious. Additionally, the elevator enables speedy rescue operations.
Ship-to-shore cranes, rail mounted gantry cranes, rubber tired gantry cranes and ship unloaders are typical installations but Alimak elevators are also used on goliath cranes, drydocks, silos, warehouses and other facilities at ports and shipyards around the world.
