The ultimate ergonomic baggage handling for airports and cruise terminals

Our ergonomic bag handling solutions have reduced the high number of injuries associated with manual handling of baggage. Today, there are over 650 TAWI baggage lift units in more than 65 airports installed around the world, boasting thousands of satisfied baggage handlers who work with the equipment every day.

Isn’t it time to take control of the baggage?

Our TAWI solution is an innovative way to take control of the baggage handling. The benefits users report include reduced work-related injuries, such as a lower shoulder and back pain from lifting, improved working environment and increased efficiency.

Flexible baggage handling solutions for any environment

The flexibility of the TAWI products means that we can overcome many of the physical constraints that occur in any cruise terminal – or airport baggage hall. Whether retrofitting into an existing terminal or planning for a new building we can offer easy lifting solutions that will adapt to the existing or required infrastructure. We take responsibility for the design and make sure we understand the customers processes and work closely with integrators and architects.

The earlier we become involved with the baggage handling system in an airport development project, the better the outcome

TAWI’s design engineers develop lifting devices in collaboration with customers, integrators and architects whether these lift assist systems are retrofitted or specified into a baggage system from the outset. To ease this process, we use 3D design packages such as SOLID WORKS, NAVIS or REVIT which enable efficient project coordination with design team members. The earlier we can become involved in a project, the better the outcome – space can be safeguarded and the solution less compromised benefitting the end-user.

Let our ergonomic baggage handling solutions help lift your business

Existing users of TAWI’s baggage lift have highlighted increased productivity, proper lifting techniques, improved workplace safety and reduced number of work-related injuries at many airports and seaports. Independent studies show that the load on the body is reduced by more than 80% with added bonus of maintained or increased productivity. We’re extremely proud to have created a vacuum lift system that helps every single baggage handler to eliminate their physical pain, all thanks to TAWI’s ergonomic lift assist.
