interlift 2019: Branch leader presents world firsts
One thing is certain: the coming interlift (Augsburg, 15-18 october) is 2019’s largest lift trade fair. And it will probably be even bigger than the previous event in 2017.
A permanent lift brings service technology materials almost to the very top of the highest building in the world - the Burj Khalifa in Dubai: the stop is at a height of 611 m. The service lift from Pega’s "Industrial Lift” range is fitted with Schmersal lift switchgear equipment.
If people are trapped in a lift, they can call for help, using the emergency call. But if a lift gets stuck because of a defect without occupants, there is still the collective fault notification of the lift on the spot, but the operator/employer initially does not learn anything of this - unless remote monitoring is installed.
The application finder "Aufzugstechnik” from Schmersal Böhnke & Partner permits designers to select control components and switchgear quickly on the basis of an animated lift shaft. This practical assistant can now be downloaded as an app for iPads at the Apple Store and for Android tablets from the Google PlayStore.
Mayr power transmission is continuing to develop its capacities in the Middle Kingdom. In May, the leading specialist for torque limiters and safety brakes opened a new plant with a production area of approximately 8000 m2 directly adjacent to the previous subsidiary – in good time for the 10-year anniversary of Mayr China.
Dr Andreas Hunscher has taken over the management of Schmersal Böhnke + Partner GmbH on june 1st 2016. In his new function he will continue to be responsible as director for Schmersal’s Wettenberg plant as well with its business units "safe signal evaluation” and "operating elements”.
Mayr Antriebstechnik is expanding and extending its company complex at its Mauerstetten headquarters. The new communication centre "mayr.com” is under construction as well as a new production and assembly hall. Mayr Antriebstechnik is thereby securing and reinforcing its location in the Allgäu district for the long term.
Telegärtner has been selling the HBN visual emergency call device for about two years. The device has now been thoroughly revised and offers some great improvements. For example, the new visual emergency call device can be operated optionally via mobile communications or a local network.
The material glass offers many advantages in lift construction. The smooth and tough surface is heat-resistant, transparent, hygienic and resistant against chemical products. Furthermore it offers a multitude of design options thanks to modern digital printing procedures.
Serving the needs of people in this rapidly changing world, finding fast practicable solutions, expanding the development centre in Berlin - these are the goals pursued by the US lift company Otis. At the Hanover Trade Fair it announced two important forward-looking cooperation projects.
Product development can be inspired by very different philosophies. At times low manufacturing costs take pride of place - leading to the product performance limits being framed as narrowly as possible, the reduction of product quality to a minimum, the acceptance shorter product life cycles and shifting parts of the investment costs to later operating costs.
