Pleasanton Program: Elevator Technology - Where Its Been & Where Its Going

This presentation is designed to help architects achieve a better understanding of the major changes in the elevator industry. John Miller and Kate Dalton of KONE Elevators will unveil some of the major differences in conventional elevator technology. By understanding what separates traditional traction elevators and traditional hydraulic elevators, the architect will be able to decide which application will best suit their needs. KONE will also spend a large amount of the presentation on one of the biggest advances in the elevator industry: the advent of the Machine Room-Less Elevator (MRL). This innovation is widely considered the successor to the standard hydraulic due to its higher quality and its oil-free focus on a more "green" elevator. Discussion will include how the standard MRL elevator operates and the different variety of options an architect has in relation to the MRL. Lastly, the presentation will cover some of the future movements within the elevator industry and open the door for any elevator related questions.
