Transformation of the stair lift sector
With immediate effect, thyssenkrupp Elevator is equipping 120 customer advisors in nine countries with mixed reality technology and Microsoft HoloLens.
Kone has developed an innovative product for the complete replacement of existing lifts in the form of the NanoSpace: space-efficient, energy-saving and capable of installation in next to no time together with a completely new drive and suspension concept. The lift has been available on the German market since 1 June 2014. The first lifts are now in operation.
Curious children stare in fascination through the glazed landing doors into the lift shaft. They hold the glass doors with both hands and often fail to notice that when the lift door opens the landing door also moves towards the door frame.
Sick AG is an original partner of Axoom, an IT service provider founded by the laser and machine tool manufacturer Trumpf. Axoom offers a digital business platform for manufacturing companies that are steadily paving the way toward industry 4.0. Logistics processes are at the heart of this cooperation.
Maintenance in modern lifts is normally carried out on the principle of preventive maintenance. This means that lifts are regularly maintained at set intervals. This maintenance strategy ensures high availability of the lifts, but this availability is bought at a relatively price.
The lift and escalator industry’s favourite place to present innovations and trends is at the interlift in Augsburg. Weber Tec from Hamburg made its way there again to present tried-and-tested as well as new repair options for escalators and moving walks to the industry, ones which can not only be done more cheaply, but also more quickly and right on the spot.
They are unique in form and technology: the arched escalators of the Hamburg Philharmonic Hall which will be handed over to the guests in October 2015. From November 2016 they are to transport the members of the audience to the "Plaza” viewing platform. From here there is a fascinating view of Hamburg, the harbour and the Elbe. The overall complex will open in January 2017.
The main topic at the Operators’ Day of the lift company Niggemeier & Leurs in Bottrop was the amended Operational Safety Ordinance. The reformulated provisions were examined from all angles and subjected to controversial debate.
Once again, ThyssenKrupp’s mobility solutions have proved to be a fitting complement for iconic structures; the company has secured a contract to provide the inner mobility solutions for the Cube Tower, a unique high-rise building in Foshan, Guangdong Province, including a total of 34 elevators and 16 escalators.
Since September, 1st, 2014, the Bosch Communication Center has been renamed Bosch Service Solutions. The name says it all: It reflects the aim of becoming the leading provider in the field of business process outsourcing for innovative, technology-driven services. Additionally, the company is developing and operating new business models together with its customers.
The increased demands of operators and users are challenging the manufacturers of lifts and components to differentiate themselves on the market. The technical service organisation TÜV SÜD supports its customers in this regard worldwide. At the interlift experts will provide information on the modernisation and energy efficiency of lifts as well as on the certification of lifts and safety components.
