ThyssenKrupp Elevator AG Unveils New MULTI Elevator Technology

ThyssenKrupp Elevator AG has introduced the new MULTI elevator technology, a rope-free elevator system. MULTI elevator technology increases transport capacities and efficiency while reducing the elevator footprint and peak loads from the power supply in buildings. Several cabins in the same shaft moving vertically and horizontally will permit buildings to adopt different heights, shapes, and purposes. The first MULTI unit will be in tests by 2016. MULTI will transform how people move inside buildings, just as the recently introduced ThyssenKrupp's ACCEL, is set to transform mobility between short distances in cities and airports. In a manner similar to a metro system operation, the MULTI design can incorporate various self-propelled elevator cabins per shaft running in a loop, increasing the shaft transport capacity by up to 50% making it possible to reduce the elevator footprint in buildings by as much as 50%. Using no cables at all, a multi-level brake system, and inductive power transfers from shaft to cabin, MULTI requires smaller shafts than conventional elevators, and can increase a building's usable area by up to 25%, considering that, depending on the size of the building, current elevator-escalator footprints can occupy up to 40% of the building's floor space. The overall increase in efficiency also translates into a lower requirement for escalators and additional elevator shafts, resulting in significant construction cost savings as well as a multiplication of rent revenues from increased usable space. The significant extra space available is only one of MULTI's advantages. Although the ideal building height for MULTI installations starts at 300 metres, this system is not constrained by a building's height. Building design will no longer be limited by the height or vertical alignment of elevator shafts, opening possibilities to architects and building developers they have never imagined possible. MULTI is based on the concept of ThyssenKrupp TWIN's control system and safety features, but includes new features such as new and lightweight materials for cabins and doors, resulting in a 50% weight reduction as compared to standard elevators, as well as a new linear drive - using one motor for horizontal and vertical movements.

ThyssenKrupp Launches New ACCEL Transportation System

ThyssenKrupp has launched ACCEL, a new transportation system to accelerate transit times in cities and airports. It is unique; passengers enter walking at a regular speed and get accelerated at high-speeds to the other end. Applying linear motor technology from the Transrapid magnetic train, the ACCEL transportation system will facilitate fast access to metro stations, making it possible to have a station entrance at less than 600 metres from any commuter, attracting up to 30% additional passengers. In airport terminals, ACCEL can cut current transit times between gates by a remarkable two-thirds. ThyssenKrupp presented its most recent technological development today, marking its entrance into the mass transit sector. ACCEL is a unique transportation system offering high capacities and high speeds for short distances, with no waiting times for passengers and low implementation costs. As congestion in urban transport networks rises in tandem with the population increase in cities, city governments are under continual pressure to reduce road traffic congestion and combat the costs it imposes in terms of immense wastage of time, energy, and environmental resources. ThyssenKrupp ACCEL was developed to address this need in the current multimodal transportation network of large cities. The ACCEL transportation system facilitates the building of passenger feeders to existing metro stations, making them easily accessible even to commuters who do not usually use the metro due to its distance from their locations. Metro system capacities can now be maximised with new access points, and by increasing the connectivity of current metro networks, the new transportation system could capture 30% additional passengers. Implementing ACCEL works as an alternative to building expensive additional stations or carving complex underground connections, and results in a significant decrease in the number of road transport vehicles in use. ACCEL also benefits airport operators looking to improve transit times between gates or between distant parking bays and the airport. With no waiting times or barrier gates, passengers need only 140 seconds to cover a distance of 270 metres, instead of the earlier 415 seconds, resulting in an impressive time saving of 66%. For airport operators, it eliminates the need and high costs associated with providing buses, automated people movers, or sky-trains for distances of up to 1.5 km. ACCEL can transport as many passengers as typical fully automated cabin systems, move up to 7,300 passengers per hour per direction, and combines smooth speed changes and the high safety requirements for passenger transportation. Using a band of overlapping pallets that expand to three times the original size of each pallet, ACCEL's revolutionary technology, applying the linear motor technology of the magnetic train Transrapid, ensures that passengers step onto the belt at normal walking speeds of 0.65 m/s (2.35 km/h), accelerate smoothly up to 2 m/s (7.2 km/h), and then decelerate back to normal walking speeds before leaving the system.
