The secret to Aritco HomeLift’s smooth ride?

Niklas Karlsson, VP of Products, Services and Technology, discusses Aritco’s patented screw and nut lift drive technology.

Aritco HomeLifts offer a smooth and safe ride thanks in large part to the patented screw and nut lift drive technology. This simple and reliable system provides increased safety, reduces noise and requires little maintenance. Aritco offers a 10-year guarantee on the drive technology of their home lifts, underscoring its longevity and efficiency.

Niklas Karlsson, VP of Products, Services and Technology at Aritco, tells us more about the benefits of this clever drive system.

Hi Niklas! Can you briefly explain how the screw and nut technology works?

“In a screw and nut-driven lift, there is a steel screw mounted on the top of the lift shaft that runs down the length of the shaft. On the L-shaped platform – behind the platform wall –  an electric motor drives a bronze nut, which winds up and down the screw, moving the platform up and down. The incline on the screw can vary, and Aritco uses different inclinations on different lift models in our portfolio.”

Why did Aritco choose this drive system?

Originally, the screw and nut technology was developed for an accessibility lift introduced to the market in the 90s. This was a cost-effective solution which allowed lifts to be installed in an easy way in existing buildings. Aritco has developed the screw and nut technology, making it even smoother with a higher incline on the screw. There are other lift manufacturers that use similar technology for public and commercial lifts as well as for home lifts. However, Aritco HomeLifts use a higher incline on the screw to give maximum comfort when using and experiencing the lift.”

How does this drive technology affect the overall size and user experience of the Aritco HomeLift?

With the screw and nut technology, Aritco designs lifts with a very efficient footprint. The additional space required outside the platform is minimal. We can provide lifts with platforms fulfilling all requirements from a very small footprint up to sizes where wheelchairs and other appliances would fit. It is important to remember that the space required for a platform lift is significantly smaller than for other lift technologies. There is also an evaluation of energy performance showing that Aritco lifts fulfil all the highest standards and requirements.

Coming back to the drive principle and general design of Aritco’s lifts, we provide a very high level of safety and comfort.

“Recently, we spent many hours optimizing the drive belt between the motor and the drive nut, which optimized the smoothness of the ride and reduced its sound level. It should be noted that we also give the option to equip our lifts with sound insulation design panels in the shaft, giving our customers the opportunity to have the best experience possible.”

What is on the horizon when it comes to technology at Aritco?

“Aritco was the first company to introduce the dedicated home lift to the market. Since then, we have developed our lifts to provide maximum comfort as well as providing customizing opportunities to make our lifts blend in or stand out in any environment. The latest addition is the SmartLift functionality. This means all lifts are connected to the internet, providing possibilities for end users to control and monitor a large set of lift functions using the Aritco SmartLift end-user app.”
