Passenger Lift:A passenger lift has a completely enclosed lift car that travels vertically within a specially prepared lift shaft. Passengers are transported between floors at reasonably quick speeds and the control systems are often designed to give the most economical distribution of passengers throughout the building.
Freight Lift: Freight elevators are large elevators designed to move goods from different floors in a building. ... Freight elevators usually hold between 2,300 and 4,500 kg of weight, and they usually have rugged interiors to help prevent damage during times of loading and unloading goods.
Bed Lift: Is a mobility tool used to help seniors with mobility challenges get out of bed or the bath without the assistance of another person. Named for its inventor, the Bed lift is also referred to as a portable total body lift or a patient lift.
Escalators and Moving Walks: While escalators move people between floors or heights in a vertical fashion, moving walkways are like slow conveyor belts that transport people across horizontal distances. Sometimes, like escalators, they move people on an incline and between different floors.
Automatic Doors: Automatic door opens when the door controller receives an activation signal by the sensor and activate the gear motor to drive the belt and pulley. When no one is detected inside the activation area, the door starts closing after a designated period of time.
Solar Boards: A solar cell panel, solar electric panel, photo-voltaic module or solar panel is an assembly of photo-voltaic cells mounted in a framework for installation. Solar panels use sunlight as a source of energy to generate direct current electricity.
Machine Room-less Elevator (MRE): Machine-room-less elevators utilize a gearless traction machine located in the hoistway. The use of a counterweight assists the machine in turning the elevator sheave, which moves the cab through the hoistway.
Small machine room elevator: The smallest residential elevator will be around three feet by three feet or 9 square feet of clear platform. A simple method to envision this space is to consider a standard ceramic floor tile. A typical floor tile is approximately 1 square foot, so 3 tiles wide by 3 tiles deep is 9 square feet.
Hydraulic lift: A hydraulic lift is a type of machine that uses a hydraulic apparatus to lift or move objects using the force created when pressure is exerted on liquid in a piston. Force then produces "lift" and "work."

- Elevator car & shaft
- The Sheave & Motor
- Control unit
- Machine drive
- Counterweight guide rails
