The largest international trade fair for lifts Interlift will be held from 26 to 29 April in Messe Augsburg in Germany. Liftinstituut is present at this fair. You can find us in hall 3, booth 3193. Visitors from all over the world will turn to the booth for information about safety, certification and training. On April 27th you can also attend the Liftinstituut presentation on lift safety at the VFA-Forum Interlift. 


At the booth Liftinstituut is happy to share the latest developments on international standards, functional safety, certification (e.g. remote and UKCA) and our worldwide training program. You can also hear about our guidance in setting up new inspection regimes in European and countries worldwide. 

Presentation 'Improving safety of older LIFTs'

As always, the trade fair will be accompanied by the VFA-Forum Interlift. Our Product Manager Lifts, Willem Kasteleijn, wil give a presentation on the subject 'Improving lift safety of existing lifts' on April 27th, 11.30 am. Kasteleijn says: "Lift safety has been an important topic for over many years. But are users aware that the safety of older lifts is a complete different story from the safety of modern lifts?"

"Modifying an existing lift with a variable speed drive is widely applied, but a device to prevent uncontrolled upward movements is hardly installed. The risk of a gradual decrease of the machine brake performance is no longer noticed, until a deadly dangerous uncontrolled upward movement of the lift - even with open doors - may occur. You hardly see that happening with original non-variable speed drives." As our lift safety expert Kasteleijn will deal with the question: what can be done do to mitigate this risk? Are there other options then installing an upward safety gear?


The Liftinstituut booth is a meeting place at the end of every exhibition day for everyone who is active in the lift industry in Europe. If you go to Interlift, then meet your colleagues there while enjoying a drink and a snack. We hope to see you at booth 3193 in hall 3.
