Schindler announced the debut of its Robotics Installation System for Elevators (R.I.S.E), in a bid to increase the usage of automation and digitalisation in the elevator industry.
With its autonomous and self-climbing robot, this prototype solution permits safe and well-rounded installation of elevators, and is ideally suited for use in high-rise buildings, the firm said in a statement.
Karl-Heinz Bauer, chief technology officer, Schindler Group said: “We are proud to introduce this innovative system which provides a new level of worker safety and helps to improve quality.”
The new technology was recently used to install several elevators in commercial complexes and tall residential buildings in Europe.
R.I.S.E is developed to eliminate the repetitive, physically demanding work of drilling multiple holes in concrete walls, to set anchor bolts that give greater precision when installing guide rails and to reduce safety risks significantly in demanding working conditions.
Schindler hasn’t revealed plans as to when the R.I.S.E system will swing into action in the Gulf.
