Customized solutions for cargo logistics

Airport Cargo Handling Systems: Getting cargo on the way.

Around the world, most airports today handle not only passenger traffic, but also freight traffic in a wide range. Thanks to our many years of experience and know-how as well as our broad product portfolio, we can offer you the best solutions for your freight logistics challenges. With us, you can implement the right application for the efficient transport of freight – from small letters to larger bulky goods and heavy-load shipments.

Freight traffic at airports places special demands on conveyor systems:

  • Consideration of IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations.
  • High performance of the system
  • Significantly reduced handling times
  • Quickly implemented service during ongoing operation

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

Prepared for special ambient conditions

  • Optimum corrosion protection in the fresh-goods temperature range 32 to 50 °F (0 to + 10 °C)
  • Rust-free design
  • OKS painting
  • Special torque reserve and adaptations of the gearbox oil and the seals in the deep-frozen goods range of 32 to -22 °F (0 to -30 °C)

Need-based drive sizing with Drive Solution Designer (DSD)

  • In-depth knowledge about drive applications such as drive physics, variants and energy efficiency
  • Calculations with individually applicable process data and speed profiles
  • Complete drive structure for all of the machine's requirements
  • Energy Performance Certificate provides a quick overview of potential energy savings

Transfer vehicles:
specialist horizontal transport on one level.

  • Soft start and deceleration with adjustable ramps protect material and transported goods
