Slimline gearbox drives elevator innovation

Slimline gearbox drives elevator innovation A gearbox measuring just 160mm wide has been designed and manufactured by Renold Gears as part of a revolutionary new compact drive solution for escalator manufacturer, Schindler. The company wanted to simplify the main drive systems on its escalators to reduce the number of components, cut maintenance and enhance their high-tech looks. The bespoke gearbox was supplied as a replacement drive and retrofitted onto an existing escalator situated in the coastal town of The Hague in Holland. The drive, which was installed in 2005, has performed perfectly, and, as a result of Renold Gears' successful slimline solution, further installations are planned for 2006.
