The innovation to overcome on-site safety issues efficiently

The Schindler Group announced to debut its breakthrough Robotics Installation System for Elevators (R.I.S.E), paving the way for greater automation and digitalization in the elevator industry. Recently, the innovative technology is been applied to install several elevators in commercial complexes and tall residential buildings in Europe.

R.I.S.E is on display at the CTBUH 2018 conference in Dubai from October 21-25, 2018, along with various innovative offerings from of Schindler that bring mobility solutions to urban cities. With its autonomous and self-climbing robot, this prototype solution enables the installation of elevators to be safer with high quality, and is ideally suited for use in high-rise buildings.

The innovation maintains safety on site

Karl-Heinz Bauer, Chief Technology Officer, Schindler Group, stated,  “We are proud to introduce this innovative robotics system which provides a new level of worker safety and helps to improve quality,” he added, “This is another example of Schindler’s commitment to providing digital and urban mobility solutions to shape smart cities of the future.”

R.I.S.E. to increase the work efficiency

Schindler is a leader in elevator technology with a long tradition of developing innovative mobility solutions and owes the first-ever patent for elevators without a machine room.

The R.I.S.E intends to eliminate the repetitive, physically demanding work of drilling multiple holes in concrete walls, to set anchor bolts that provide greater precision when installing guide rails and to reduce safety risks notably in demanding working conditions.

Schindler collaborates with CTBUH for research

Reportedly, Schindler and the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) have signed a two-year partnership agreement, which focuses on research into robotics and automation processes in the construction of tall buildings. CTBUH is a non-profit organization that facilitates the exchange of knowledge on tall buildings.

The research will allow academic and industry experts to explore together with Schindler researchers the application of robotic technologies – used in R.I.S.E – to enhance the quality and speed of construction with maintaining safety on sites.
