VFA-Forum interlift: Programme annoucend!
The programme for the VFA Forum at the interlift has been finalised: Forum visitors can take part in almost 50 lectures on a wide variety of topics in the Forum.
Otis, one of the biggest international manufacturers and service providers for lifts, escalators and moving pavements, has presented its "New Gen2” lifts in Germany. Thanks to the new car design and networked functions, the lift has become a fashionable and at the same time highly functional core element of a building.
Wittur announced that it has successfully completed the closing of its acquisition of the Sematic Group, a leading supplier of elevators and elevator components headquartered in Osio Sotto, Italy. The combined company will become one of the significant global manufacturers of components, modules and complete systems for the entire elevator industry.
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.
