Horizontal and vertical elevator system using linear motors revealed by ThyssenKrupp

ThyssenKrupp’s new lift system - MULTI - will have the capacity to move horizontally as well as vertically, moving without the standard rope system, the company announced this week. ThyssenKrupp will be using linear motors to combine multiple cabins into a single loop, meaning that users will have almost constant access to a lift cabin, approximately every 15 to 30 seconds.

Andreas Schierenbeck, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Elevator AG said: "As the nature of building constructions evolve, it is also necessary to adapt elevator systems to better suit the requirements of buildings and high volumes of passengers.

"From the one dimensional vertical arrangement to a two dimensional horizontal/vertical arrangement with more than one or two cabins operating in each shaft, MULTI represents a proud moment in ThyssenKrupp's history of presenting cutting-edge transport technologies that best serve current mobility needs." The company asserts that the first MULTI unit will be in testing by 2016.
