We’ve been spending a lot of time lately looking at NYC’s skyscraper boom and what’s to come for our skyline. And if the soaring towers and geometric architecture continue, the traditional elevator is just not going to cut it. That’s where ThyssenKrupp’s new elevator innovation comes in.
The cable-free, multi-car, multi-directional elevator operates with magnetic technology similar to that of Maglev trains. Each cabin runs on its own individual motor, and the “MULTI” elevator systems allows them to move both vertically and horizontally, creating the potential for multiple cabins to run on a single system.
