Mitsubishi’s New Elevator to Debut in 121-story Shanghai Tower. Shanghai Tower will open later in 2015 as the world’s second largest tower. The feat puts the tower only behind Dubai’s famous Burj Khalifa tower that stands 828 meters high. Shanghai Tower will rise 121-stories into the air and stand at 632 meters high. The building will have one thing that no other tower in the world has yet: the world’s fastest elevators. Introduced by Mitsubishi Electronics, the elevators use aluminum and carbon fiber to negate wind resistance and move faster than any other elevator in the world. Called an “ultra-high-speed elevator,” the new model will bring guests from the very bottom floor (B2) all the way to the 119th floor within a mere 55 seconds. The feat is powered by vibration sensors, 9 in total, which will allow the elevator to move at 64.8 kilometers. The system used active roller guides so that vibration is kept to a bare minimum. A company representative stated that the vibration levels upon ascending are virtually non-existent. Currently, the elevator is not able to be tested by anyone outside of the Mitsubishi Company. A simulator has been created that will allow others to feel how the elevator’s vibrations will feel. The test environment shows how riders would feel in a normal elevator at top speed and in the company’s new invention. Initial tests show that very little vibration is felt in comparison. The tower will be equipped with 3 of the company’s elevators. Initial estimates show that capacity will be 2,000 Kg, or 28 people of average weight. There will be a pressure control system to ensure that passengers do not experience ear popping when ascending. Descending speeds have been limited to 600 meters per minute as a result. Currently, the fastest elevator in the world travels at 1,010 meters per minute instead of the Mitsubishi model’s 1,080 meters per minute.

The second tallest skyscraper in the world. The photos of the Shanghai Tower, 632 meters high and will be inaugurated next April. The Shanghai Tower will open next April and with its 632 meters will become the second tallest skyscraper in the world, after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai (830 meters high). The Shanghai Tower is part of the group of skyscrapers, along with the Jin Mao Building, and the Shanghai World Financial Center, located in Pudong District. Work on the construction of the Shanghai Tower, which should cost around 1.8 billion Euros, began in 2008 and, when it opened in April, will accommodate 16 thousand people a day in his offices, bars and restaurants. There will be 106 elevators, including the next three fastest elevators in the world - able to travel at about 66 km / h, that is 18 meters per second. Between the 84th and the floor will be open 110esimo the Jin Jiang Hotel, which will become the tallest hotel in the world. When it's finished, the building will be one of the most environmentally sustainable in the world: the skyscraper consists of nine cylinders placed one above the other, to form 128 floors, and windows that cover the entire facade are designed to reduce the stress due the wind on the construction of 24 percent compared to traditional windows. For this reason were needed less material, for example 25 percent less steel in the structure. On top of the building will be positioned wind turbine to provide additional electricity. Marshall Strabala, chief architect of the Shanghai Tower, explained the importance of the management of the wind with a skyscraper height of this: "The force of the wind on a very tall building is the major difficulty that architects and engineers face. In Shanghai, there are peaks of wind up to 190 kilometers per hour, but the Shanghai Tower is designed to withstand any of the genre. "

Announced the opening of the Shanghai Tower. The second tallest building in the world opens its doors. Starting in June, visitors can admire Shanghai for over 500 meters high. It will take about a minute to go up to 119esimo floor of the Shanghai Tower, thanks to three high-speed elevators that take tourists to a height of 560m. With its 632 meters is the second tallest building in the world, after the unattainable Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and will complement the skyline of Lujiazui: the financial district of Shanghai. Just one of its neighbors, nicknamed "the bottle opener" for its particular form, was the tallest building in China, until the completion of the tower that exceeds 140 meters and that, together with the ' iconic Jin Mao Tower, has turned into reality the ambitious project that in 1993 had foreseen three super buildings in a single district. The interior of the Shanghai Tower is yet to be finished and already there are those who begin to daydream about another construction impossible Xtopia. A skyscraper on an unprecedented scale, designed to be independent from the rest of the city from every point of view, already nicknamed "the tower mile" for the incredible height of 1600m that the building should achieve. For now it's only fiction, but the imagination of these engineers should never be underestimated.
