Airport cargo handling systems

Airport cargo handling systems

Send goods on their way

Most airports around the world not only deal with passenger transport today but also deal with freight transport of a huge spectrum. Thanks to our long-standing experience and our know-how as well as our broad product portfolio, we offer you the best solutions for the cargo sector. Together with us, implement the right application for efficient cargo transport - from small letters and larger bulk goods to heavy-duty shipments.

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

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
