Lift roller guides require time and effort for maintenance and replacement, so if they can be extended in life, advantages such as reduced maintenance frequency, cost reduction, and improved reliability can be obtained. In this research, authors propose roller guides that achieve long life by changing the material of the roller and have both ride comfort and durability. To decrease the vibration of lift cabin, an analytical model for calculating the time history response of the lift cabin will be constructed, and the vibration control effect will be verified by simulation incorporating spring and damping elements based on the experimental results. Through analytical and experimental approach, a design way for a roller guide that has optimal riding comfort and durability within the range of safety regulations is proposed.
