Celebrating 50 years of engineering Bauman have a long and distinguished history of machine building, but it is the PaxLift that will transform travel for millions of passengers.
The PaxLift is an innovative, purpose built vehicle that ensures all people with reduced mobility can be transferred with dignity between the terminal and the aircraft, revolutionising the customer airport experience for them.
Lifting from ground level to 8 meters, the award-winning PaxLift is purpose built to carry up to six wheelchair passengers’ plus six additional passengers; the passenger cabin can be accessed at ground level, so no need for any separate lifting, improving speed and comfort. The driver and passengers are able to see one another, creating a more personal less ‘cargo’ like experience.
Bauman’s expertise and experience of manufacturing heavy lifting equipment, ensures that unlike other Ambulifts, the PaxLift can manoeuver safely whilst at serviceable heights of up to 8 meters.
And in response to the latest Airport Handling Manual (AHM) from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), stating that all GSE machinery is to have a no-touch policy, PaxLift has become one of the first Ambulifts with a no-touch system ensuring that it is not required to come into contact with the aircraft it supports.
The new system comprises of four sensors, which control the approach to the aircraft and stops the PaxLift once it reaches a safe position. An automatic swivelling system for the platform has been integrated, and functions without the need to touch the aircraft.
