MULTI elevator
Rottweil, Germany

Assembly managing and installation for ThyssenKrupp

The world's first rope-free elevator MULTI, the groundbreaking rope-free elevator system, is set to revolutionize tall building construction.

MULTI combines rope-less linear motors and horizontal mobility with the many advances of TWIN elevators. This makes MULTI a valuable shuttle for optimizing traffic. A double-entrance lobby further increases MULTI’s flexibility and handling capacity.

MULTI’s innovative exchange system allows the linear drive and guiding equipment to make 90° turns. How? By using the linear motor technology developed for the magnetic levitation Transrapid train.

With MULTI, multiple cabins travel safely up one shaft and down another in a single continuous loop, much like a circular train system on a vertical plane. The only visible difference to passengers – and it’s a welcome one – is that the doors open every 15 to 30 seconds, despite having fewer shafts compared to standard elevator systems.
