If Julio Verne lifted the head would do one of his characters more famous, German Professor Otto Lidenbrock, seek the path to reach the center of the Earth through an invention like the elevator. And is that if researchers now walk in the idea of giving with a space elevator capable of making us arrive, which explorers, to places so remote and unthinkable as the moon. KONE, the leading manufacturer in vertical transport (elevators, escalators and automatic doors) has made the operation in reverse. I.e. the Tytyri mine has created in Lohja (Finland). There, and at a depth of 333 metres, they sweat to any of the lifts that prove with absolute safety and security measures. The raison d ‘ etre of this hole in the depth of Earth is none other than the solutions optimal to improve lifting solutions existing on the market.The mine hollow forms a community under the ground with a lattice of galleries, routes and tunnels that allow you to safely test the most innovative lifts, Monica Martin, Director of Marketing KONE Spain explains. Xcel Energy is actively involved in the matter. It is the highest testing center in the world and if that same a great innovation.
There and at a speed of 17 meters per second we launched the elevators to see its strength and reliability. Into this pit of lifesize and seated upon a mine of limestone KONE innovation team has changed the concept of testing for elevators Tower. For all these tests the Center extends in an operational structure with an intricate network of voids, transport routes and tunnels in which allows the efficient and safe installation of equipment testing of lifts, emphasizes Martin. In that pit the installation of lifts for your testing teams, goes a solid transport routes and a fast Assembly into the recess. Thus the things, and as if they were miners, KONE engineers carried out in two trenches excavated advanced studies in areas such as transmission systems, motor, controls, comfort of travel, influence of pressure air, methods of installation and safety. The fact that the environment is embedded in solid rock makes enormously stable installation that serves as a laboratory of external conditions, adds Martin. KONE KONE who is offers the best experience of displacement due to his programme People Flow Experience a series of solutions that allow people scroll way comfortable, safe and smooth, without large delays in buildings and responding to the demand of an increasingly urbanized society.
KONE provides to its clients the most innovative solutions of a global leader in the industry for elevators, stairs and doors. He is an expert in fabrication, installation maintenance and modernization. It is a consolidated company that had a net 4.1 billion euros sales in 2007 and has around 32,500 employees worldwide.
