Component failure of aging elevator equipment can significantly add to operating costs, lead to increased equipment failure and reduce a building’s value. If you’re looking to bring your vertical transportation equipment up to today’s standards of safety and luxury, we can help. The Mitsubishi Electric ELEMOTION™ Package modernizes traction elevators from all manufacturers. Mitsubishi Electric can also modernize hydraulic elevators through a local supplier modernization package.

Is it time to invest in your elevator equipment?

Elevators have limited lifecycles, designed for a service life of approximately 20 to 25 years. Even with regular maintenance, elevator machinery requires updates over time. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, it’s probably time to modernize:

Issue 1: Safety & quality — Deterioration over a long period of use leads to increased vibration and reduced safety.

Issue 2: Running costs — Older equipment can lead to higher repair costs and an increase in power consumption. Mounting operating costs can greatly affect a building's budget.

Issue 3: Longer downtimes — Deteriorating equipment means more frequent breakdowns. Subsequent repair work could also mean disruption of service, resulting in prolonged downtime.

ELEMOTION™ resolves elevator aging issues

Reduce the burden on the building and update to a safer and more comfortable traction elevator. Instead of replacing the entire system, the Mitsubishi Electric ELEMOTION™ Package can bring existing equipment up to date — replacing only the components that needs updating.

Effect 1: Improved sense of security — Devices and components that have degraded over time are updated. Safety and ride comfort will also be improved.

Effect 2: Improved ecology and environment — Latest devices offer greater energy efficiency, and parts that last longer are retained and reused.

Effect 3: Reduced frustration — By replacing with state-of-the-art equipment, failure rate and repair time will be significantly reduced, maximizing uptime.
