Just like a human, we may have a fever when we are not feeling well. A lift shall breakdown when it faces technical issues such as triggering of safety circuit may lead to both electrical and/or mechanical tripping of the system. If a lift fails to shut down its operation and continues to run with hidden technical issues, it may lead to unsafe operation of the lifts.
Notwithstanding this, it does not mean that regular breakdown is a normal lift symptom. Thorough investigation is required to determine the causes of its breakdown. We do not think that by merely resetting the lift controller will solve the technical issues. In our opinion, it may just be an action to erase the fault in the lift program which may still arise if the source of the technical issue is not identified and/or rectified. We advise lift service maintenance personnel to identify the source of the problem instead of frequent resetting the lift system.
If the lift continues to breakdown after rectification by lift contractor, building owner or managing agent may contact us for a comprehensive approach to resolve the lift breakdown issues.
We were one of the 78 delegates in 11 countries who participated in the 8th Symposium on Lift and Escalator Technologies, held in Hong Kong from 15 – 16th May 2018. It was a great opportunity for us to learn from the best engineering practices and technologies globally as well as sharing our experiences and opinions on how we can raise the lift & escalator industry standards that comprise both safety and traffic management including engineering design, equipment maintenance and passenger operation. We would like to thank the Lift & Escalator Symposium Committee and the host city for their efforts to organise the event.
An article of the symposium was also featured in the “Elevator World” magazine in August 2018, Page(s) 158-160.

We conducted networking and recruitment sessions on 18 May 2018 and 22 May 2018 at NTU GradRecruit 2018. It was a “Non Traditional” form of recruitment as we shared how we can create jobs through innovation and entrepreneurship. We also shared how we can bring our engineering dreams to reality by adopting practical approaches to realize our dreams in steps. Through these sessions, we hope to inspire engineers to join us to make a difference in improving people’s lives or providing solutions to engineering problems through their engineering passion in creating a solution.
Lastly, we thanked all fellow NTU graduates for your interest in our company and we will be contacting you shortly via email.
Mr Ng Swee Peng , a Nanyang Technological University (NTU) alumni graduate from the EEE was invited by NTU, Career & Attachment Office (CAO) on 20th September 2017 to conduct a sharing session on “Engineer Turned Entrepreneur” to fellow NTU undergraduate and graduate students. The purposes of the talk are to give students a better understanding of their profession , overcome challenges and to realize their hidden potentials to achieve their dreams. As one of the participants has termed, it was “knowledge beyond academic !” . Mr Ng hoped the enthusiasm and spirit of entrepreneurship will continue like the interaction he had with the fellow participants during Q&A session that was extended beyond the scheduled time of 6.30pm to almost 8pm !
The session may have ended but participants are welcome to ask questions or provide feedback by clicking Here ; or write to Mr Ng directly through the online form if you need any advice in your studies, career or entrepreneurship.
Finally, may all the fellow participants continue to embrace numerous challenges ahead and achieve many success in near future!
Our director, Mr Ng Swee Peng was invited as a guest speaker to share his views on Technopreneurship with Temasek Polytechnic Business Process & Systems Engineering Final Year Students on 1st Nov 2016. Hope this sharing session will inspire more students to be interested in engineering and take engineering to an entrepreneurship level one day.
