A nurse came in and said, 'Look Skip, it's good that you're feeling more positive, and you're actually nice to be around now, but you need to accept that you won't walk again.' But I just kept saying my mantra and asking to be taken out of my traction machine."
Some of the features of the record-setting elevator include a permanent magnet synchronous motor to achieve both a thinner profile and higher output power, a compact traction machine realised by adopting main ropes with higher strength and lighter weight, and a space-saving control unit with inverters that possesses one of the world's highest capacities for elevators

This is in turn boosting demand for traction machine elevators over hydraulic machine elevators.
The reason is probably the traction force managed by the traction machine is uniform throughout the session while the traction force applied manually is difficult to keep it uniform due fluctuations in muscle activity, which is natural.

The system can be used both at high temperatures (if the traction machine is provided with an oven) and at room temperature to study at the same time biaxial stretching and mechanical properties of films both in uniaxial and in biaxial modes using consecutive or simultaneous two-directional stretching.
The gearless traction machine with the permanent magnet motor is packed with cutting-edge technology, such as the unique stator-core structure and built-in double brakes.
