Crisplant’s Baggage Loader Wins interDESIGN Award

CRI091 - Baggage Loader2HiCrisplant, part of the BEUMER Group has won the interDESIGN category of the inter airport Europe 2013 for its new Baggage Loader.
“The Baggage Loader is a collaborative development between BEUMER Group and London Heathrow Airport (LHA),” explained Klaus Schäfer, Managing Director, Crisplant.  “After extensive live testing at the airport, the Baggage Loader is now installed in the baggage hall in Terminal 1 of LHA.”
“The award also demonstrates BEUMER Group’s expertise in developing innovative baggage handling equipment and systems which range from the semi-automated lifting aids, such as the Baggage Loader, to state-of-the-art fully-automated baggage handling systems with integrated in-tote Level 3 and combined RFID/bar-code screening.” Crsplant says its ”easy,” one-person operation means that the Baggage Loader can enable a single operator to transfer baggage from a chute into a container or ULD, with a peak loading throughput of 300 bags per hour.
The company says in addition to eliminating heavy manual lifting, to improve workplace safety for baggage handling staff, the loader increases the overall efficiency of the baggage handling process.
Crisplant on behalf of BEUMER Group received the award at the inter airport Europe Awards Ceremony which took place during the opening of the inter airport Europe show in Munich.
