Wittur provides landing doors and car doors

The press conference and training camp opening ceremony of the 1st National Vocation Skills Competition for Elevator Installation was held by Mechanical Industry Vocational Skills Appraisal Guidance Center, in Chongqing Energy College, 11th -12th April, 2015.

The competition is the highest level of Chinese elevator industry in vocational skills contests, attracted more than 68 teams (nearly 300 people) from the major national elevator companies and installation companies. The final competition was held in Chongqing, on 16th -19th May; it consisted of theory test, 3D virtual simulation elevator installation, and hand-on installation.

As one of the main co-organizers, Wittur provided Augusta landing door and Hydra plus car door for the module 3 –Installation and Adjustment of Landing door – and module 4 –Installation and Adjustment of Car door.  

Wittur expects to help the new generation of elevator installation professionals to be quickly familiar with the work environment through practicing installing Wittur door products during the training and competition.

Li Zhihong, dean of Elevator College, explained that 710,000 sets of new elevator were installed in 2014 in China, and a yearly growth trend of 15% was foreseen which causes a  gap of  500,000 elevator installation and maintenance personnel.  And now, the gap becomes the bottleneck of the elevator industry development. The elevator installation quality was a continuation and crucial point of the manufacturing, which not only relates to elevator life cycle, but also to the operation performance and elevator safety. Wittur group is committed to “Safety in Motion”, and pay great attention to everything related to the elevator safety. Wittur wants thus to support professional skill talents cultivation, and therefore, the safety of the final elevator.
Wittur appointed its own technical service to support the participants and solve any small issue due to mishandling during the competition.
During the closing ceremony, Wittur was presented with the “Outstanding Contribution Award”.

Wiedenzhausen, March 3rd, 2015

Wittur presented today a new publication focused on special elevator projects developed by Wittur with architets and consultants wordlwide.
The book "LIFTISMORE" aims at introducing some architectural project where the elevator design was considered not only for its usefulness, but also as an element of style: an additional space where the pen of the designer can incorporate the overall building concept.
Some elements of the building design, such as the elevator systems, must first and foremost provide a safe and reliable transportation solution for the people living and working there. This is why many building designs, although impressive, sometimes fail to innovate as far as elevator systems are concerned: they treat elevators as a commodity which needs to be provided, and not an element of design in itself.
Wittur has been developing special elevator solutions for more than 40 years. We do not install nor service elevators; we work as partners in special projects, together with the design team and the elevator installer, to provide elevator components which fits with the original vision of the architect.
The technological development of the elevator component industry has taken away most structural limitations with which architects of the past had to deal. The elevator system of the 21st century can thus become one of the landmarks of a peculiar building design and contribute to the embodiment of the original vision. In this book you will have a chance for inspiration, coming from a selection of project in which Wittur has helped developing an original concept encompassing the elevator system and making it part of the building structure. We look forward to work with you as a partner to push the boundary of elevator design one step forward.
Please contact your local Wittur team for further information.
