Kissing (Germany), 3 August 2022 – Pfaff Verkehrstechnik's international business is currently growing exceptionally well, as shown by various successfully completed major projects, such as the equipping of a new railway depot in Ashkelon, Israel. This is where electric trains of the type Desiro HC (High Capacity) from the manufacturer Siemens Mobility are maintained – these are considered state-of-the-art multiple unit trains that were first presented at InnoTrans 2014.

In addition to track systems, it also includes, among other things, an axle changing system, multiple lifting tables, mobile lifting jacks, hydraulic support jacks, turntables and roof working platforms ("flying carpets") for maintenance work on the train roofs.

Kissing (Germany), 27 April 2022 – Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products has this year put its versatile THETA safety electric wire rope winch to work raising and lowering the lighting in St. Mary's Cathedral in Hamburg's St. Georg district. This is where 19 new electric wire rope winches from the Pfaff-silberblau brand world have now replaced the previous winches, which still had to be wound by hand.

12.04.2022 10:00 Pfaff-silberblau supplies BETA wire rope winches for height-adjustable solar simulation system for hydrogen vehicles
Kissing (Germany), April 12, 2022 – Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products has supplied Pfaff-silberblau BETA-EL4 series wire rope winches and associated wire rope pulley blocks to BF Engineering to enable flexible solar simulation using height-adjustable irradiation of hydrogen-powered car or truck prototypes in a climate chamber. Specially approved, high-quality components are necessary for this application, as the technical lighting systems of the facility require special safety measures due to their high irradiance of up to 1200 W/m², their large irradiation surface and the number of water-cooled lamps. BETA wire rope winches in accordance with DGUV V 17/18 are also suitable for applications in such test beds.
28.03.2022 10:00 Pfaff Verkehrstechnik internationally successful with height-adjustable access platforms for bus roof and window maintenance
Kissing (Germany), March 28, 2022 – Pfaff Verkehrstechnik is increasingly supplying its recently launched access platforms for bus roof maintenance to municipal bus operators throughout Europe, for example, as far away as Norrköping, a Swedish city in the province of Östergötland. The roof working platforms recently installed there are used to carry out maintenance and repair work safely and efficiently on the roofs and windows of the municipal bus operator's vehicles. Pfaff Verkehrstechnik has already delivered several such systems to Swedish companies as Sweden is one of the pioneers in electromobility, and the electrically powered buses frequently used there require more maintenance than diesel-powered buses.

Kissing (Germany), 5 January 2021 – Columbus McKinnon Corporation (CMCO) has brought together its brands, including Pfaff-silberblau, a brand of the German subsidiary Columbus McKinnon Engineered Products, and Pfaff Verkehrstechnik, on a new global website that has been very well received by customers since going live in mid-December 2021 and has already initiated many projects currently underway due to its optimised web-based interaction. One reason for the success and the high level of acceptance is the fundamentally improved user experience, since many new features have also been integrated in addition to familiar functions such as the popular Pfaff-silberblau CAD configurator "CAD & go".
