Wittur at Interlift 09

Hall 7


Wittur has been present at Interlift 09, the international trade fair for elevators, components and accessories that took place at Augsburg Exhibition Center from October 13th to October 16th, 2009.

At Wittur booth in Hall 7, stand 721, visitors coming from all over the world have been able to experience Wittur extensive range of products directly and got a glimpse of new products to come.
Mr. Sergio Biglino, Executive Vice President Corporate Sales & Marketing, Wittur Group, comments in a favourable way the outcome of the exhibition: "Wittur was pleased to meet its customers at Interlift 09 with innovations for energy efficiency, modernizations and accessibility, safety and special expertise in tailored lift projects.
As a global supplier, Wittur is transferring its worldwide competence to a new generation of lift components: smaller, less power-hungry, more flexible, easier to install. Many of this products were on display in Wittur stand in Hall 7”.
Wittur has been the first company to obtain the A-class energy efficiency certificate for complete MRL W-Line lifts made mainly using Wittur components at Wittur headquarters in Wiedenzhausen, Germany, as well as in Wittur production companies in Istanbul, Turkey and Scheibbs, Austria.
Most of the components used on these lifts were present on the Wittur stand, namely:
  • The new “ECO” series of gearless drives designed and produced by Wittur Electric Drives GmbH in Dresden, Germany. They feature a reduced current consumption of as much as 20% depending from the application;
  • Hydra Plus car doors, the internationally acclaimed door series which stands for utmost reliability, presented with the new generation of ECO+ and MIDI+ door drives. This new drives substantially reduce the energy consumption required for each opening/closing cycle (up to 48% compared to previous design) and have a very low standby consumption;
  • The new Hydraulic pump unit HI produced by Wittur Hydraulic Drives S.r.l. in Bergamo, Italy, equipped with inverter. The WITTUR HI pump unit is the only unit currently on the market that is able to control the car movement through an inverter only, thereby optimizing the motor efficiency at any given moment of the lift operation. Thanks to its specific configuration, the WITTUR HI pump unit is already compliant with the new EN 81-2 pr.A3 Standards, which will come into force in 2010.
  • The Hydraulic pump unit HE with electronic valve produced by Wittur Hydraulic Drives S.r.l. in Bergamo, Italy, which offers significant energy savings (up to 30% compared with traditional pump units installed in lifts with a short travel height)
Another section of the booth has been dedicated to Wittur experience in safety components:
  • UCM solution for protection against unintended car movement. The solution consists of electronic overspeed governor EOS and bi-directional progressive safety gear BSG-25P. Wittur EOS electronic overspeed governor, the innovative solution to comply with the new uncontrolled car movements directive. Thanks to the continuous electronic monitoring of position, speed and acceleration EOS offers a higher accuracy of measurement compared to conventional governors.
Modernization and accessibility solutions were also featured on Wittur Booth:
  • Fineline extended range of automatic lift doors: an extremely compact footprint designed to insert an automatic car door and an automatic landing door in a minimal depth (115 mm) when modernizing an existing lift with swing doors.
  • Hydra Plus 3000 car doors, presented in a new version with reduced sill thickness starting from 50 mm and equipped with the new generation of ECO+ and MIDI+ door drives. New solutions such as the possibility to place the motor on upper left or right without adapters account for high installation versatility
  • AMD car door operator modernization package. A perfect solution for car door operator modernization, with a wide rangeof pre-designed and customised solutions available
  • ECO Bus, the new patented folding car door available with flat or W-panels. ECO Bus features a light but strong design with sturdy deformation-resistant panels coupled together using high-strength extruded aluminium hinges
