This week is the Symposium on Lift and Escalator Technologies and ACE Lifts are proud to have one of their members of staff, Rafal Kwiatkowski giving a presentation.
2014 is the fourth annual Lift and Escalator symposium organised by CIBSE and the University of Northampton. This year, it is on the 25th and 26th September and is being held at Highgate House in Northampton. Experts from all areas of the lift and escalator industry will be presenting their peer reviewed papers on topics including ‘Hybrid Lift Group Control Systems’, ‘Lift Systems in High-Rise Buildings: Handling Capacity and Energy Efficiency’, The History of Traffic Control’, and ‘Lift System Calculations in EN81-50 ‘ amoungst others.
Rafal will be speaking about ‘The Development of a Low- to Mid-Rise Energy Efficient, Green Lift System‘ which he has been working on at ACE Lifts for the past year. Some aspects of his research includes using lightweight materials for the lift car and sling, the concept of an ‘active counterweight’, remote monitoring (including the usage of the i-COM) and improving installation techniques.
