Cargo traffic at the airport poses special requirements for conveyor systems:

  • Compliance with IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations
  • High system capacity
  • Significantly reduced transit times
  • Fast service during running operation

We help you meet these requirements with innovative and individual solutions.

 

 

Storage and retrieval units (ETV): for horizontal and vertical storage.

  • Complete solution package for pioneering storage and retrieval units of the next generation
  • Easy commissioning through ready-made technology functions
  • Reduced buffer zones for greater storage capacity
  • High availability thanks to decades of experience with storage and retrieval units
  • DC bus connection between travel and hoist drives for reduced energy consumption
  • Regenerative modules for optimal energy balance

Transfer vehicles: specialist horizontal transport on one level.

  • Soft start and deceleration with adjustable ramps protect material and transported goods
  • Highly efficient drive technology with multiple overload capacity
  • Integrated switch-off positioning with initiator evaluation
Transfer vehicles: specialist horizontal transport on one level.

 

 

Roller conveyors: the basic transport element.

  • Compact drive solution for constant speeds and defined acceleration and deceleration ramps in accordance with IATA requirements
  • Soft start and deceleration with adjustable ramps protect material and transported goods
  • High power density of drive technology thanks to overload capacity of up to four times
  • Reduced cabling by getting rid of the previous contactor or starter solutions
  • Freely adjustable speed for streamlined use of different drives

Corner transfer conveyors: successfully changing the direction.

  • Tried-and-tested drive solution for changing the delivery direction of the unit load devices (ULDs) by 90 degrees
  • Soft start and deceleration with adjustable ramps protect material and transported goods
  • Highly efficient drive technology with multiple overload capacity
  • Integrated switch-off positioning with initiator evaluation
