Schindler’s Robotic Installation System for Lifts

Today, buildings are growing taller and wider, and much faster. To address these increasingly challenging demands on installation schedules, we are providing the fastest lift installation method to date: our revolutionary robotic installation system, Schindler R.I.S.E.

As a technology leader in innovative urban solutions for the smart cities of tomorrow, we have developed the Robotic Installation System for Elevators (Schindler R.I.S.E) combining advanced automation with lift technology. For the first time in history, a robot can execute installation steps autonomously, providing many benefits including the safe and high-quality installation of lifts.

Benefits for our customers and our people

  • High-level accuracy
  • Better-quality installations
  • Removal of conflicts; improved planning with BIM integration
  • Improved worker safety and welfare; reduced need for non-ergonomic manual tasks
  • Automatic installation steps
  • Most efficient installation method for drilling and setting anchor bolts
  • Highly attractive installation schedules for fast handover to customers

Drilling position according to the rebar location

Our Schindler R.I.S.E system can complete a floor - drilling and setting the anchor bolts required for landing doors, divider beams and wall brackets - much faster than conventional installation methods. A camera is mounted onto the platform to allow remote viewing, but the system operates independently; no operator is required. Once installed in the lift shaft, the autonomous Schindler R.I.S.E operates around the clock until all anchor bolts are installed. For quality control and support, a Schindler R.I.S.E Operator remains on site for the duration of the installation. 

With Schindler R.I.S.E, the installation team is relieved of the physically demanding, repetitive, and time-consuming tasks of drilling and setting anchor bolts, improving safety in a taxing work environment.


Schindler R.I.S.E and building planning

Robotics ushers in a new way of working, directly linked with digital planning.

Schindler R.I.S.E complements other digitisation solutions in the tall building industry, such as Building Information Modelling (BIM). With Schindler R.I.S.E, the robot can receive data directly from the digital building model. This ensures the bolts are placed exactly according to the layout and removes the need for manual and error-prone data transfer to construction workers. Information and data from each step of the installation is recorded and automatically exchanged in the digital model of the building for later reference in the construction and maintenance phases of the project.


Collaboration with the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH)*

We are shaping the construction sites of the future, together with our customers. In our research agreement with the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), we are investigating how robotic technology, like Schindler R.I.S.E, can positively impact the construction processes of tall buildings to improve the quality and speed of construction while maintaining safety on-site.

Schindler Innovation

We are proud of our pioneering heritage in lift technology with a long tradition of developing innovative mobility solutions.

We are proud to introduce this innovative robotics system which provides a new level of worker safety and helps improve quality. This is another example of Schindler’s commitment to providing the most advanced digital and urban mobility solutions to shape the smart cities of the future.

Karl-Heinz Bauer, Chief Technology Officer, Schindler Group

*CTBUH is a non-profit organisation that facilitates the exchange of knowledge on tall buildings.
