Airport baggage handling systems
Baggage 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 baggage 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.
Increased workplace safety at airports
TAWI has developed and implemented solutions to solve the manual lifting problems of baggage at airports. The results are ergonomic vacuum lifting equipment that increase productivity and minimize the risk for repetitive work related strain injuries. TAWI lifting equipment allow unique and flexible solutions where ceiling height, narrow and confined areas with limited available working space may be an issue. Our patented low headroom equipment is one example of how TAWI provides our users with lifting safety and innovative answers to challenging environments.
