Airport baggage handling systems

lifting heavy luggage with handheld vacuum lifterBaggage handling at airports is typically a combination of automated and manual handling, often in areas with low headroom and limited available working space. The automated handling system takes checked baggage from the ticket counter, through security screening and delivers it sorted, by flight, to either a chute or conveyor where the baggage is then manually loaded into different kinds of ULDs (Unit Load Device) or open carts. This manual lifting often results in work related repetitive strain injuries with decreasing work tempo and high sick absence. Improve the working environment and gain efficiency with a TAWI baggage handling system.
