Interlift Augsburg is a leading International trade fair for elevators and their associated accessories. All leading manufacturers and experts in the vertical transportation will be presenting their latest innovations.
“With a substantial part of the world energy consumed by elevators, in this time of climate changes and carbon print, there’s no doubt energy efficient products will play an important role in this sector – explains Abder Sadouk, the Product Manager for Gearless Machines for Elevators. Also the introduction of the new Lift Directive 2014/33/EU coupled with corresponding standards EN81-20 and EN81-50 will lead to an incredible variety of components innovation”.
As the subject foreground is energy saving, Lafert is answering the challenges with the introduction of an innovative design, a gearless permanent magnet machine, energy efficient with a small diameter sheave. It is more compact, less noisy and practically vibration free. This size and weight advantage allows it to be installed in the lift shaft, without the need of a machine room. Lafert remains confident that this product will be well received and will generate a lot of interest.
“Over 90% of our produced gearless machines are exported mainly to Europe and Middle East – concludes Sadouk. Our aim is to go global. With visitors coming from the four corners of the world, we remain confident that this show will help toward our goal.”
