Since the acquisition of Ruhrthaler company, an enterprise rich in tradition, we are one of the major suppliers of self-propelled monorail systems (diesel or electric-powered travelling cabs) that are implemented for heavy loads in underground and tunnelling use. Because of our employees‘ field knowledge and our application of the most modern technology, today we can offer custom designed solutions for all transport purposes.

A brandnew development in the area of transportation systems is the floorbound, derailment-safe floor rail train. It is available as type SFB 150 with 150 kW drive power rate. As the rail system is provided with a slip-safe gear rack drive the transportation of heavy loads is possible, where the use of friction based systems is limited due the humidity and extreme inclination.

The merger of company MUCKENHAUPT completes the Bräutigam Groups´ range of monorail transport products for the handling of men and material and enables our company to offer complete monorail systems. The brand name MUCKENHAUPT is very well known in the international coal mining industry and has been used in mines and tunnels for long distance transport and short distance transport close to the face for many decades. It is very often used as auxiliary equipment with diesel and battery monorails or locomotives. The brand has been standing for reliability and proper operation ever since.
