A linear actuator consists of an array of permanent magnets and a three-phase coil unit. These types of actuators are used in highly accurate positioning stages or customer specific systems. Our linear actuators portfolio consists of off-the-shelve and customer specific motors. One of the applications of the linear motor is the so-called MULTI project from our customer ThyssenKrupp.
As urbanization is increasing, buildings are getting higher, wider, and more complex. Traditional elevators just aren’t keeping up. MULTI is a real game changer in the area of elevators. Because it moves sideways too, building design won’t be limited by the vertical alignment of elevator shafts. This allows for more visionary ideas that couldn’t be realized until now. The MULTI elevator reduces the waiting time and is more space and energy efficient. We develop and manufacture the complete propulsion system for this elevator in house!
