Wittur was present with a booth in Hall B, stand 223 at World Elevator & Escalator Expo 2010, the international trade fair for lifts, escalators, components and accessories that took place in Langfang, China, at Langfang Exhibition Centre from April 21st to April 24th, 2010.
Ms. Bettina Schoen, Managing Director of WITTUR ELEVATOR COMPONENTS CO. LTD., underlined the importance of WEE EXPO for the Asia-Pacific markets: "Wittur was pleased to meet its customers at World Elevator & Escalator 2010. We exhibited several innovations for energy efficiency of lifts, as well as our complete range of lift components and our expertise in tailored lift projects. Thanks to the pioneering mindset of Mr. Horst Wittur, who recently passed away at the age of 67, the Wittur Group established their China office and production facility in Shanghai, Suzhou area as early as in February 1995 to manufacture lift components at European quality standards. Wittur China is serving the lift markets in China and Asia Pacific”.
Wittur has shown a full range of innovative lift components in four sections.
An “Energy efficiency” section of Wittur stand hosted:
- The new “ECO” series of gearless drives with reduced power consumption
- The new generation of ECO+ and MIDI+ door drives – brushless and with reduced power consumption and a very low standby consumption;
- The new frequency controlled Hydraulic pump unit HI equipped with inverter for lower energy consumption and better ride comfort
- The Hydraulic pump unit HE equipped with electronic valve, which offers significant energy savings.
Another section of the booth was dedicated to Wittur experience in ”Safety Components”, showing amongst others the UCM solution for protection against unintended car movement. The solution consists of the electronic overspeed governor EOS and the bi-directional progressive safety gear BSG-25P. Wittur’s commitment to safety was underlined through the exhibition of Wittur Fire rated doors including Russian-certified EI60, EN 81-58 E120 and EN 81-58 E120 with glass framed panels.
The section “Special Expertise” featured some special samples, such as Wittur round glass OSAKA lift car with LUNA round glass doors. These products show Wittur’s expertise in dealing with special applications, where customer specifications are set very high.
The fourth section “High Performance” gathered lift components such as Pegasus door in a version for high rise applications and WSG-29, the latest addition to Wittur’s range of high power gearless drives for demanding projects.
