MAHA lifting columns MAPOWER II

Performance and brand identity

The new post lifts for repair shops MAPOWER II from MAHA Maschinenbau Haldenwang GmbH & Co. KG is not only visually appealing but also characterized by the high degree of optimization of technical details. The entire product family, with a total of nine model variants, was designed for under user-friendly and mechanical aspects. This ensures a distinctive brand appearance with a consistent and high recognition value.

Ideal localized work illumination

In order to ensure an optimal illumination of the working environment, an LED working light has been integrated into each lifting column. This feature is unique in the market segment of the KFZ column lift platforms and reflects the user-friendly and holistic approach of the MAPOWER II products.

Optimizations such as the slit cover of the column, as well as the reworking of the lifting carriage and the trawl grill, create a high-quality character that reflects the company's high demands on its products.

Refering to the corporate design of existing MAHA products, dirt and clean areas of the user interface were determined and set in color references. As a result, the user interface has been intelligently integrated into its rough and potentially polluting application environment.

MAHA lifting columns MAPOWER II are awarded with the prestigious iF product design award 2017 in the category Industry / Skilled Trades.

"Design concept"

An important step in the development process in which product visions are created, logical shapes and functional concepts are made and through design the product emotions are generated. Clear, unique and future-oriented structures, which connect the shape, the material and the function, give the product its future and individual character. Those innovative design concepts are worked out in detail, verified with previous variants, clearly structured and afterwards entirely developed in close dialogue with the client.
