What’s
linear motor elevator?

© Shin Takamatsu Architect and Associates Co.,Ltd.

The next generation elevator drives directly by connecting a linear motor to the elevator cage.
The elevator will be self-propelled (ropeless), dramatically increasing the degree of freedom in trajectory and control.
No need to limit the traveling track to a vertical straight line as in the past, it can move in any direction in three dimensions, and multiple elevators can run in the same track, so it can operate in less space than before.
This next-generation vehicle makes new architecture and mobility possible and enrich lives around the world.

Development

Currently, we have succeeded in developing a drive system for linear motor elevators,
and we are operating a prototype at the Uji Campus of Kyoto University.
We have also succeeded in developing an AI group management system necessary
for the realization of multi-car elevators.
Linearity’s technology is almost ready to be provided to our customers.

CEO Message

Linear motor elevators have long been a dream of many elevator engineers and architects,
not just us of Linearity. The day of realization is finally approaching.
Next-generation elevators will change the city,
bringing about major changes and enormous economic benefits.
“Creating a prosperous future with linear motor elevator technology”
We are looking for companies and individuals who can be partners in this wonderful adventure,
such as investors, industrial partners, and developers who create the next-generation architecture.
