A freight elevator, or goods lift, is an elevator designed to convey goods and heavy loads in between floors of an industrial or commercial building rather than passengers. . Freight elevators are typically larger and capable of carrying heavier loads than a passenger elevator, from 500 to 10,000 kg and even more. . Freight elevators are designed with manually operated doors and collapsible metal doors and normally have sturdy cabin finishes to prevent damage while loading and unloading material in the cabin. Electrically driven elevators are more energy efficient for the work of freight lifting. It designed to carry goods, rather than passengers. Freight elevators are generally required to display a written notice in the car that the use by passengers is prohibited, though certain freight elevators allow dual use.
Freight Elevators with drum winding are perfect suitable solution for the installations where heavy and massive commodities/goods needed to transport vertically like work-shops, show-room, industries etc. In this version of freight elevator an electric motor is directly coupled with gear box and output shaft of gear box is coupled with a drum which is used on the place of main sheave as in normal traction elevators. Steel ropes or hoisting ropes are wounded around the circumference of the drum and fixed on two outer edges of the drum. Hoisting ropes are looped around the sheaves on the top of cabin and the drum thus when motor runs on one side car raise upward and when turn on other side lower the cabin.
We are implementing new technologies in order to realize smooth riding comfort and greater cost performance in freight elevator.
Selection of the buffer depends upon the size of the cabin, capacity, speed, travelling height of the elevator
