ThyssenKrupp Elevator presents two space-saving innovations
iwalk and Velino Compact set new standards with increased passenger capacity and compact design
The modular design of the iwalk provides outstanding versatility and flexibility. Unlike conventional moving walks, the horizontal model can be installed directly on existing floors - with no additional construction work required. Thanks to this unusual concept, individual segments can be added or removed whenever necessary in the shortest possible time - the entire installation can even be moved to a new location. That makes the iwalk especially suitable for metro stations, train stations, airports and exhibition grounds. "With these two new products, ThyssenKrupp Elevator is responding to increasing demands from customers for flexibility and sustainability," says Dr. Olaf Berlien, CEO of ThyssenKrupp Elevator AG. "We have added two outstanding innovations to our portfolio which set new standards in the industry, and not just because of their compact design and environmental benefits."
For example, both the iwalk and the Velino Compact can be fitted with a new energy saving system. Depending on the number of passengers, the system optimizes power consumption without reducing operating speed. As well as cutting energy requirements this also extends the life time of the drive system. Further savings are achieved by using modern components and efficient LED lighting. And the compact size of the systems also adds to their green credentials.
