Catering to the growing demands of elevators in the country with construction of high rise building becoming a common phenomeno, ThyssenKrupp AG will invest about Rs. 300cr into setting up a new plant for producing high-tech elevators in Pune that would reduce its import dependence to less than 10% from 30%.
"We would also like to introduce our new innovation in elevator which operates without the support of ropes and can move not only vertical but also horizontally," said Oliver Burkhard, Member of the Executive Board of ThyssenKrupp.
As the ThyssenKrupp Group rolls out the Multi-elevator technology, which increases transport capacities and efficiency with the provision to place several cabins in the same shaft the era of the rope-dependent elevator has come to an end. Linear motors are placed in the elevator cabins, transforming conventional elevator transportation in vertical metro systems. The new technology increases transport capacities and efficiency with the provision to place several cabins in the same shaft. When designed at the time of construction, the technology can halve the space required for elevator installation to 20%. Power consumption can also be reduced by moving the shafts efficiently.
