Maurer Rides

Maurer Rides

Since 1876, Maurer has been working from headquarters in Munich and today has over 1000 employees at six production sites around the world. In 1992, Maurer entered the development and production of Amusement Rides with the takeover of the activities of Co. BHS / Anton Schwarzkopf. Maurer still provides service and spare parts supply for all Schwarzkopf coasters.

To focus on the roller coaster market, Maurer founded the subsidiary Maurer Rides GmbH in 2003, which today acts as a specialized and independent unit of the Maurer Group. Most of the production takes place at the Munich site with Maurer SE as the main company.

Maurer Rides specializes in rail-mounted transport systems. In addition to roller coaster trains and related Amusement Rides, this includes passenger transportation systems and people movers as well as conveyor systems for the transport of goods.

Since the beginning, Maurer Rides regularly pioneered the development of revolutionary new technologies, which later became the market standard. In 2004, for example, the Maurer X-Car was the world's first system for inverted rides without a shoulder restraint. Innovative track figures can be designed with the help of the self-developed multi-body simulation package XTRAC and the track tubes are bent three-dimensionally with the Maurer XBEND method in unprecedented precision. The introduction of the revolutionary Spike® drive technology represents a milestone in several sectors in the development of rail-bound transport systems.

Numerous awards and patents underline the status of technology and innovation leader.

Development

Development

A detailed risk analysis forms the basis of every product development and its safety properties. In addition to long service life and ease of maintenance, the establishment of a high-quality and distinct design is always the focus of our development work. Numerous international design awards also confirm the high design quality of our products.

Automation technology in particular has developed rapidly in recent years. The connection of different hardware platforms leads to integrated systems, which leave no wishes open. In addition to networking between the plant's control systems and the framework of the operator, the combiation of control and multimedia appliances, as well as the use of smartphone apps and Internet applications, offers extensive possibilities.
A highlight certainly been achieved in the development of our Spike® Racing vehicle, which combines speed-dependent and individual sound, touchscreen display, LED control and on-board video. Via the Spike® app, the end customerhas access to driving characteristics and results as well as to fully automatic video download.

The comprehensive software platform Maurer XTRAC is used for customer-specific design of the track layout. By means of exact multi-body simulation, the dynamic loads on all relevant structural elements are determined. Extensive integrated optimization functions relieve the layout designer of routine work during the creative process and automatically lead to an optimized track design.

Measurements on the real track and comparison with the simulation results allow quality control of the production as well as continuous refinement of our simulation parameters.

Production

Production

Via the Maurer XTOOLS interface, the track layout is passed from XTRAC on to structural engineers to determine the load-bearing structure. XTOOLS automatically and error-free generates the 3D drawings as well as the production documents.

At the same time, the data are sent to the Maurer XBend system, which allows pipes with a diameter of up to 406 mm to be deformed extremely precisely in three dimensions. Subsequent work in the track production can be minimized and the highest production precision ensured. For measuring, highly precise laser trackers and tachymeters are used.

In addition to the high-quality production of the steel structure, i. E. supports with three-dimensional joints, regular tracks as well as special tracks with mechanical mountings, vehicle manufacturing is a further production focus. As a renowned welding company, Maurer has all relevant welding certificates (qualification class E). For mechanical processing of the frames after welding, machines with large working areas are available.
The entire production process, right up to painting with a process-proof hot-spray system and careful packaging of the components, can be carried out in-house.

The construction of the supports on site, the cabling and the commissioning of the ride is supported by experienced supervisors or carried out completely turn-key.
