6/2013 - November/December
The air still resounds from the success of Italia Magnifica, at the Interlift 2013. Elevatori was the spearhead of the Italian success, in cooperation with ANACAM and ANICA. At page 18 you will find the full report on Interlift, the most important expo in Europe and probably in the world. According to a well established tradition, this first piece on general topics (data, seminars, and obviously Italia Magnifica), a further report will follow in next issue, dedicated to technical aspects.
But we have to do a step back, because the issue starts telling about MADE Expo 2013. The event did not see a large participation from the vertical transportation industry, but those who exhibited there were very satisfied. The event was combined with a number of very interesting seminars and workshops. Among these, one was “Going up or going down?”: a new initiative promoted by AssoAscensori.
AssoAscensori is also in page 44 with an analysis on the Italian lift component industry.
Dario Trabucco, in Architecture, deals with escalators and moving walks. And so does also our Giovanni Varisco, from the standards point of view. In the Techniques pages, Vittorio Mazzoni presents the results of a study conducted on a new solution, able to reduce the energy consumptions in hydraulic lifts. Then a Japanese quartet (Sasamori, Kotani, Kimura & Hayashi) explains the use of cell phones as a maintenance support tools for lift equipments. Paolo Antico introduces the features of a new serial control panel, designed for lifts and lifting platforms and based on CAN-bus (Controller Area Network).
This issue is closed by a piece on futuristic (geopolitical and economic) scenarios, crossing the boundaries of our industry.
This year as usual Elevatori’s staff did their best to make the magazine an interesting reading for the vertical transportation professionals.
From all of us: season greetings!.
