Vimec Platforms to Mexico City

Vimec ensures accessibility to Mexico City Underground
Through a joint effort with one of its dealers in Latin America, Vimec will be able to ensure accessibility for disabled people in 4 metro stations which belong to line 12 of Mexico City Underground.

With over twenty million people, Mexico City is one of the biggest cities in the world and the line 12 one of the most crowded lines of this Central American metropolis.
The installation of Vimec platforms will take place in the first half of 2012.

Vimec at the forefront with the 3D scanner

One of the most important aspects in designing a tailor-made solution for overcoming architectural barriers concerns the importance of the installation environment: the staircase, the landings, the parking spaces and the specific requirements of the user.

To offer their customers an increasingly dedicated service, taking advantage of new technologies, Vimec uses the 3D scanner, a cutting-edge system for measuring staircases.

This instrument allows technicians, who make the inspection, to detect the staircase’s measurements in a simple, fast and precise way.

By placing a few markers on the ladder (for example on the lower floor, on the landing, on the land floor and to indicate a handrail), the scan, executed through a tablet, is able to return a faithful reproduction/good simulation of the ladder in 3D, which allows to obtain all the measures necessary to design the Vimec installation, both for the chair stairlifts and for the platform stairlifts.

There are so many advantages to using this instrument:

  • all measurements are extremely accurate and reliable;
  • the time needed to build the custom-made plant will be shorter;
  • the 3D reproduction of the staircase will always be available to the technicians to carry out the necessary measurements;
  • the measurement of the staircase during the inspection is faster.

Reliability, safety and the use of cutting-edge technologies characterise Vimec, which is committed to providing its customers with an increasingly efficient service, anticipating working methods that will become the standard in the coming years.
