thyssenkrupp has introduced a rope-free elevator system, which is set to revolutionise tall building construction. The MULTI harnesses the power of linear motor technology to move multiple cars in a single shaft both vertically and horizontally.
Instead of one cabin per shaft moving up and down, the MULTI offers multiple cabins operating in loop, like a metro system inside a building. Without the use of cables, MULTI runs on a safe multi-level brake system and redundant wireless data and energy management on the cars.
MULTI is seen as one of the key solutions to the ever growing challenges facing mobility and efficiency. MULTI is an elevator that can literally open up new directions of travel in underground transport hubs.
