Roller Guides for Cantilevered Elevators

Gerhard Schlosser

Friday 1st May 1992

Further to a paper presented at ELEVCON 90 in Rome which explained advantages of cantilevered elevators, this paper at ELEVCON 92 presents exact data. The riding characteristics have been recorded up to a speed of 1,7 m/s, employing a tacho generator for travel speed, comparative wattmeter readings for power consumption and vibration transducers. The relevant curves have been recorded and stored by means of a 4 – channel oscilloscope. Corresponding printouts have been produced. The determining parameters are: car frame and loading capacity, wheel diameter of rollerguides, material of wheel tyres and employment of single or tandem wheels.
