Crisplant, part of the Beumer Group and a global supplier of automated baggage handling systems, will present live demonstrations of two of its latest innovations in baggage handling efficiency at inter airport 2015, October 6-9, in Munich Germany.
The innovations on show include Crisplant’s CrisStore rack-based storage system and the semi-automatic Baggage Unloader. The Beumer Group stand will also feature new software controls for optical character recognition/video coding system (OCR/VCS) and baggage handling system visualization and management, which have been added to its Airport Software Suite.
The space-efficient CrisStore rack-based storage system is designed to enable airports of all sizes to improve the capacity, accuracy and security of early baggage storage (EBS). It features 100% tracking and traceability of baggage in addition to dynamic allocation of luggage between different storage modules. These features enhance security and provide on-demand retrieval of an individual bag, or sorting of multiple bags for batch loading onto unit load devices (ULDs). These capabilities enable a more flexible check-in process and increase the speed and accuracy of transferring baggage to the make-up area.
The second live demonstration will feature the Baggage Unloader, which is part of Beumer Group’s award-winning range of semi-automatic lifting aids. The Baggage Unloader enables a single operator to slide arrivals baggage from the trolley and onto the reclaims conveyor by using the Baggage Unloader’s extendable ramp. This simple system increases throughput to around 10 seconds per bag in addition to significantly reducing the risk of injury associated with manual handling of in-gauge baggage.
Klaus Schäfer, managing director, Crisplant, said, “The innovations introduced by these three products reflect Crisplant’s ‘Made Different’ approach to baggage handling. By using every opportunity to increase the efficiency, capacity and manageability of new or upgraded baggage handling systems, airports of all sizes can take cost and time out of the baggage handling process.”
