Important customised solutions throughout our history

1908The first paternoster lift is installed in the Graf Eberhard building in Stuttgart. Transporting passengers over 15 storeys, it is simultaneously the highest paternoster lift in the world.
1956 The fastest passenger lift in Europe is installed in the Hermes Tower in Hannover. The tower at the Hannover Fair is approx. 90 m high.
2004STAHL CraneSystems sets new global standards with the STK extra short headroom trolley. Maximum hook paths can be achieved as headroom is reduced by 60 %.
2007The TDC Twin Drive Concept meets the requirements of industrial standard EN 14492-2. Wire rope hoists with TDC are equipped with two redundant motor-gear-assemblies. The two motors and brakes have synchronised controls.
2008The STD Vario dual chain hoist is launched, a further development of the dual chain hoist with electrically adjustable distance between hooks. It is used for transporting long goods of differing lengths.
2011LNG hoists are developed specifically for the LNG sector (gas liquefaction plants). They are regarded as the safest hoists on the market on the basis of their redundant construction.
