Project: PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Special lifting system for the Basel trams

(SWITZERLAND/Basel)

Partner: KSU / A-TECHNIK AG


A special wheel engaging column lift solution for trams was designed for the Basel transport authorities (Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe). This challenging project was implemented by MAHA’s Swiss-based partner, KSU / A-TECHNIK AG.

The special lifting system is designed for a load capacity of 120 t and a lifting height of 1,750 mm. The carriages of trams in Basel have an enormous length of 43.2 m, which is why Bombardier, the manufacturer, decided to include additional support points for lifting the trams. This is why 16 mobile wheel engaging column lifts were installed by MAHA, rather than the usual 12.

The challenge was to align all the columns with extreme accuracy, since the synchronous running of the wheel engaging systems has to be ensured.

It is safe to assume that there is no other lift system with the same proportions, since trams are usually made up of just two to three carriages. Trams’ support points are at the axles. Each carriage has two of them, so four wheel engaging systems per carriage are usually enough.

Project: ATM Milano
UBLIC TRANSPORT Mailand

(Italy/Mailand)

Partner: Pesci Attrezzature S.r.l.


Safety on the streets of Milan. In close cooperation with our production facility MAHA USA and our longstanding partner Pesci Attrezzature, the locations of the Milan Transport Authority (ATM) were equipped with battery-powered MAHA wheel lift lifting systems. 

In the halls of a total of five depots, which are spread over the entire city area, parts of the bus fleet comprising more than 1,500 vehicles are serviced and repaired daily to bring the citizens of Milan safely and reliably to their destination. 

The operational readiness of the buses, which are distributed over 131 routes to the entire city area and the suburbs of the Lombardy capital, requires a high degree of planning security, reliable tools and outstanding service.
