SLC at the interlift 2017

Once again, we are exposing our products together with the Canadian company Peelle Ltd. the world market leader for large vertical sliding doors. SLC is the sole sales partner of Peelle doors in the German-speaking countries.

At the same location as in previous years, at the entrance to Hall 7 Stand 7180, we are showing new and exciting product innovations and our reliable "classics".

Safety gears type SG and BF: A large number of variable standard tripping devices allow the installation of our safety gears in each lift system and lifting device. Further we have supplemented our safety gears with different mounting variants and integrated in the car frame.

With our CF car frame, which can be used for all lifts according to EN 81, we offer a weight- and space-saving steel sheet construction for MRL passenger and goods lifts as well as conventional lifts with machine room.

Also available are special solutions for reduced pit depth and reduced shaft headroom.

To meet the UCM requirements of EN 81-20 / 50 (EN 81-1 / 2, A3), we present our modular UCM complete system, consisting of detection, tripping, braking device, governor rope, tension weight, emergency power supply, all required cables, electrical adaption to existing lift controller incl. circuit diagram.

Alternatively activation of safety brake on machine or hydraulic valve is also possible. An optional Wi-Fi server ensures smooth online support. All components are harmonized and certificated individually

Our drum drive lift without counterweight type SDD has become even more flexible. On base of a TÜV Süd certificate of conformity, it is possible for us to reduce the diameter ratio to D/d to 20. This saves space and allows us to use gearless machines in our MRL kits - in addition to the proven planetary and worm gears. Take a look at our adaptive drive solutions and our practical examples.

Finally, we present a selection of our approved and tested LOGOS lift doors for new installations and for modernization. All LOGOS doors meet the current requirements of the EN81-20/- 50 guidelines. Double door leaves provide stability and smoothness. The Siemens door drive ensures fast closing and opening speeds.

LOGOS doors are available in 2-parts (telescope or central), 3-parts, 4-parts, 6-parts versions as well as electrogalvanized, powder-coated, plated with stainless steel or made of glass.

Our team is looking forward to your visit and many inspiring conversations


SLC at Liftech EXPO 2016 in Cairo, Egypt

Within only four years the Liftech Expo has developed to a very interesting platform for business contacts with Egypt and North Africa. More than 80 exhibitors from Europe, Asia and MENA countries welcomed around 3,300 visitors on a total area of 8,000 m². Due to its geographical position and more than 87 million inhabitants, Egypt offers a great potential and shows it high appearance within the Arab world. Large investment programs of the Egyptian government and private investors brought more than 100 international decision-makers from the building and elevator industry to the fair.

The metropolis of Cairo with more than 22 million inhabitants is one of the most populous cities in the world. Water and electricity supply and ensuring of transport and infrastructure is the biggest challenge for public administration. The Egyptian government is now planning to build a new capital for approximately 45 billion US dollars east of Cairo. In convenient location, a new seat of government including an administrative district and 1.1 million government subsidized housing units shall be build on a total of 700 square kilometers. Technological solutions "Made in Germany" are highly appreciated and ever more international tenders of large investment projects (e.g. Port Said and Port El-Sokhna, logistics center Suez, Egyptian American Medical Center, Mall of Egypt, etc.), explicitly ask for European components. German SMEs have a competitive advantage when special expertise is needed. They can score in the area of ​​special and niche products as well as supporting services.

Our sales partner Eltouny Elevator Co., which exclusively sells our SWG gear machines in Egypt, was an important sponsor of the exhibition and therefore present with a large booth.

This gave us the opportunity to introduce our SWG gear machines and our safety gears to new customers. Additionally, we could make some interesting contacts with other companies from the Arab and Turkish region. As a result for SLC, the Liftech Expo 2016 was significantly larger and more promising than expected.

Asansör 2015

The third participation at the Asansör in Istanbul was a great success for SLC. As addition  to the world's leading exhibition interlift in Germany, the Asansör is the platform for discussions with existing and potential customers from Turkey, Iran, many Balkan countries and of course visitors from all  Arab countries. Nevertheless, customers from Germany and Poland could also be found in Istanbul.  

Again we could make many promising contacts with new customers and we even received concrete orders. For SLC  it is important to be  regularly present at this fair. 

With many customers, especially from the Arab world, business deals can be concluded only after a long time of getting acquainted. Additionally to the interlift and for  this reason it is important to use the Asansör for customer communication and to underline the interest in the Turkish and the  Middle Eastern Markets. 

We found our visitors to be well informed and partially prepared for the visit at our booth by the SLC website. Due to the positive response SLC will also be exhibitor at Asansör 2017.

Elevator of the month of december of the lift safety campaign of VFA

The elevator of the month December 2014 is an exterior lift at an apartment building in the Odenwald region. A small component is a characteristic of this lift, which is mandatory for the safety of a lift: the safety gear. For the elevator of the month a three-sided access was needed - within smallest space - which is still covering all the safety requirements. A specially developed and compact safety gear from SLC Sautter Lift Components was installed, which disappears in the car frame construction of the elevator car. Especially when retrofitting elevators in existing buildings, customized solutions are essential.

New incentives for higher elevator security: German elevators are safe!

With a “security campaign” the VFA-Interlift e.V. and its members, position themselves as the quality guarantor for safe elevators and its essentials. The main reason for this campaign is to enhance the public awareness of the high safety standards of German elevators. The results of a qualified survey that was initiated by the VFA show that 91% of the occasional elevator users feel safe and this number even gets higher with the frequent users.

In 2013, every second elevator of approximately 480,000 lift systems tested passed inspection with zero-defect, the best result since 2010. The number of minor deficiencies has been reduced by 17% in 2013 - as well the number of severe accidents is continuously declining since 2010.

“99 % of our work on elevators is safety related and therefore we provide information about concepts that enhance elevator safety”, explains Klaus Sautter, VFA executive board member and CEO of SLC Sautter Lift Components.

According to the VFA-Interlift e.V. , medium-sized elevator companies who develop, manufacture, install and maintain those safety components, have a distinctive share of the high level safety of elevators in Germany.

An important part of the VFA-safety campaign is the promotion of the “elevator of the month”, in which the VFA members present to the public all possible safety packages that a lift system could possibly carry, e.g. components diversity, functionality and  structural detail

The “Elevator of the month” is published on the VFA-website, on the VFA-press mailing list of technical journals and the local media.

Training of ‚VFA Akademie’

SLC was host of a new training of ‚VFA Akademie’ on 20th March, 2014.


SLC in February

The International Airport Dubai counts as one of the world’s largest airports. In order to accommodate the constantly growing passenger traffic, the International Airport Dubai has put Concourse A in Terminal 3 under construction, with plans to increase the capacity by 15 million passengers to a total of 75 million passengers annually. With anticipated costs of 3.3 billion US dollars, this terminal will be the world’s first and only terminal designed and developed exclusively for the Airbus A380. Schindler AG has been assigned to deliver and install 45 elevators and 43 escalators for this project, one of which is a freight elevator designated for the transportation of airfield cleaning vehicles.

In the summer of 2013, SLC was awarded the contract to build the steel construction of this freight elevator. In February 2014, the project went into the crucial phase of production, of which one highlight was the disposal of 22 tons of material with three trucks.

Because of its dimensions, this elevator is one of the largest freight elevators that SLC has constructed and manufactured (CABIN AREA 6,5 m. by 3,2m – NET LOAD 6 tons (13,227 lbs.) – ELEVATOR CAR WEIGHT 8 tons). The cabin suspension is 6:1 and therefore cabin and counterweight are each equipped with 4 diverter pulleys. In the shaft headroom a total of 3 pulley carriers each with 2 rope pulleys. The professional and timely manner in which the project was completed has proven once again SLC’s ability to fulfill challenging custom solutions.


The year 2014 started for SLC with a record-breaking inflow of orders

SLC starts the New Year 2014 with the biggest job ever in the company’s history, worth over 1 Mio Euro.

Vital for this remarkable order were the high demand for product groups like „safety gears“ and "gear machines" as well as the increased demand for "spare parts" in both sectors, electrical and mechanical.

Another key factor for increased sales was additional demands in specially built SLC-construction kits for drum-driven lifts without counterweight, our product the SAUTTER DRUM DRIVER. Since delivering the first SAUTTER DRUM DIRVER in December 2013 to London, two more orders were placed by the City of London.

The high orders are the foundation for achieving SLC’s quantity and quality targets in 2014. SLC expects a continuous demand for all product groups in the quarters to follow. SLC sees these positive results as solid evidence for the quality of their products and the efficient implementation of specific customer requirements and custom solutions.

Another thriving market segment for SLC are custom solutions. SLC was recently pleased to lock in several new contracts for these type of products, including a drum drive with control for a portal milling machine as well as a full steel freight elevator construction with a car area of 21 sq. m. for the new terminal at the International Dubai Airport. SLC is planning to expand this product line in the near future.
