The international elevator technology company Ziehl-Abegg will be presenting a highly innovative product for the American market at interlift 2023. A plastic-sheathed rope technology is used here.
The international ZIEHL-ABEGG is a German, family-run company founded in 1910 by the Ziehl family. The Ziehl family still plays an active role in the company today. With 100 locations worldwide, customer relationships have developed rapidly since the founding years, particularly in recent years.
Sales Manager Marc Hirsch is responsible for the North American market. He will be presenting the products for the North American market at Interlift 2023. As an example, he mentions the ZA top AM 200, a very innovative product for the American market, as a plastic casing technology was used here. This technology has already been used in Europe for more than 10 years. ZIEHL-ABEGG is the first to offer it on the North American market.
The plastic-sheathed cable technology allows ZIEHL-ABEGG, as a motor manufacturer, to use very small traction sheaves. Small traction sheaves mean that the motor has to apply less torque, which allows for a more compact machine design. The main advantage is therefore that lighter and more compact, more efficient machines can be installed for the same payloads using plastic-sheathed rope technology. Elevator manufacturers can thus build more sustainably by saving on materials.
