Crisplant to provide virtual-reality tour of baggage system at PTE 2016

Automated baggage handling supplier Crisplant, part of the Beumer Group, is inviting delegates at Passenger Terminal Expo 2016 to experience a virtual-reality tour of its CrisBag tote-based baggage handling system (BHS).

In addition, delegates will be invited to participate in a hands-on demonstration of a video coding system (VCS) to optimize the baggage handling process for no-read labels on transfer baggage. Delegates will also be able to meet the experts behind Beumer Group’s recent whitepaper on IATA Resolution 753, where they can discuss their own strategy on complying with the new standards.

Klaus Schäfer, managing director, Crisplant, said, “These are very dynamic times for the airport industry. The new IATA Resolution 753 requires all IATA airports to work with their partner airlines and ground handling companies in assessing possible upgrades in order to comply with this new regulation. As the Crisplant whitepaper explains, if an upgrade is required, this can also be seen as an opportunity for all stakeholders to drive down costs by accessing the new levels of efficiency offered by modern baggage handling equipment and controls.”

The virtual-reality tour of a CrisBag tote-based system will use the latest Oculus Rift technology viewers to create an experience where the viewer is taken ‘inside the system’ to experience first-hand the power of a high-speed BHS.

To learn more about Crisplant’s baggage handling technology visit stand 7035 at Passenger Terminal Expo 2016, taking place in Cologne, Germany, on March 15-17, 2016.
