Baggage Vision
Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics GmbH, Germany

Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics has developed the new Baggage Vision System to help solve the challenge of non-readable bag tags. The solution is the only product available on the market using digital images of the bag and applying highly reliable optical character recognition (OCR) software to identify the flight numbers and airport codes on bag tags.

Through multiple loadings and unloadings, bag tags can end up non-readable because they are stained, torn, twisted badly worn out or – more simply – partially hidden behind straps or pockets. Traditionally, bags with non-readable tags have to be diverted to manual coding stations, which leads to additional manual labor and a significant delay in transportation.

Beside the Bar Code also the Destination Airport, Flight, Date and the Tag Number is printed on a Tag in a human readable text. Siemens Baggage Vision can read all of that that. More information on bags becomes available. This allows fully automated sorting of bags even without further information on the bag tag number. The proportion of late or mishandled bags is minimized significantly. The number of required manual coding stations as well as the workload is reduced.


CargoSwitch
J. Schmalz GmbH, Germany

The importance of ergonomics and efficiency is rising steadily, especially in the sector of cargo handling. We are a forward-looking company adapting our product range to the changing requirements of the market. Therefore we introduced the CargoSwitch, an extendible conveyer to pick up, carry and unload cargo. This new kind of belt conveyor realizes a continuous flow of goods while breaking down pallets and building them up again. The CargoSwitch is able to load and unload cargo autonomously by picking it up with a roll in front. The semiautomatic CargoSwitch handles cargo with a maximum weight of 50 kg and a width of up to 1000 mm easily and dynamicly. The conveyor can be extended from approximately 900 mm to 3500 mm and moved in all directions. Cargo can be adjusted as required since the belts on the grapping unit can be moved in the opposite direction of each other. The intuitive user interface of the handle enables the operator to control the CargoSwitch easily and safly. The CargoSwitch offers a lot of features and can be used flexibly for almost all applications where cargo is moved from one point to another.

Fire Containment Bag (FCB)
AmSafe Bridport, Great Britain

The Fire Containment Bag (FCB) has been designed for the protection of undeclared dangerous goods, and advances on the 10 years of development of the Fire Containment Cover (FCC). Dangerous goods, including lithium batteries continue to be packed incorrectly, with a large number of accidents and near misses directly attributed to fire from these types of batteries. We have tested the FCB and FCC with lithium battery fires and both successfully prevented the fire from spreading to the unprotected areas. This product provides protection from the fire spreading for 6 hours, from the first notification of a fire on board, enabling the crew to take the necessary emergency actions.

The Fire Containment bag provides a user friendly alternative to the FCC. The FCC is designed for full pallet loads whereas the FCB is suitable for use on both pallets or within a container.


Baggage Conditioning with MOVIGEAR®-SNI
SEW-EURODRIVE GmbH & Co KG, Germany

The Standard 3 framework of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) has introduced new regulations for airport Explosive Detection Systems (EDS). This Standard 3 must be applied to all newly-installed machines after September 2014. By 2020 (2018 within the UK), all airports in Europe must comply with this standard.
All EDS machines have a defined maximum throughput, which depends on baggage size, conveyor speed and gap between bags. This maximum throughput can only be achieved with optimum baggage spacing, which ensures a high utilization of the machine.
SEW-EURODRIVE offers airports an automation hardware and software solution for baggage conditioning systems, which maximizes the throughput thanks to the high dynamic and the decentralized intelligence of SEW MOVIGEAR®-SNI. The decentralized controller MOVIFIT®-FDC-SNI uses an algorithm to calculate the necessary speed and acceleration per conveyor in order to reach the target gap between baggage items. In combination with an integrated high resolution encoder, which ensures precise baggage position tracking, the MOVIFIT®-FDC controller can also handle other functionalities such as baggage height/length monitoring.
In addition, the Single-Line Network Installation (SNI) technology, in which power and communication are transmitted over the same cable, ensures fast installation and efficient start-up.


ACCEL: an accelerating moving walkway
THYSSENKRUPP ELEVATOR, Germany

When using this new mobility product, passengers enter at normal walking speeds of 0.65 m/s (2.35 km/h), accelerate smoothly up to 2 m/s (7.2 km/h), and then decelerate back to normal walking speeds before leaving the system.
Composed of a band of pallets, which appear similar to a regular moving walkway, ACCEL incorporates game-changing technology beneath the surface. The band is built using the overlapping pallet concept that expands to the original size of each pallet by three times. Each pallet is equipped with its own magnet propelled by linear motors installed in fixed positions. In addition, the pallet band and the handrail are two separate systems that run precisely in sync, and sensors constantly focus on the position of the individual grips and pallets, ensuring that passengers always feel that these are moving at the same speed, experiencing a smooth and safe ride.
The linear motors and encoders are perfectly synchronized and, if a motor does occasionally fail, the mechanical safety chain engages and pulls the pallet via a dragger, ensuring continuity of operations.

AmpMiser 2.0 TM
Forbo Siegling GmbH, Germany

Amp MiserTM 2.0 – new generation of conveyor belts enables energy savings of up to 50%.

Amp MiserTM 2.0 is the second generation of energy-saving conveyor belts from Forbo Movement Systems for luggage and parcel handling.

The Amp MiserTM 2.0 belts feature cutting-edge tension members made of polyester and enhanced Texglide technology. As a result, the friction between the underside of the belt and the slider bed (therefore the energy consumption) are much lower. Compared with conveyor belts that have standard underside fabrics, up to 50 % of the energy required for power transmission can be saved in applications with long conveyors and heavy loads.

Ideal for galvanised slider beds

The Texglide finish on the underside fabric is an integral component of the Amp MiserTM belts and doesn’t rub off. The low friction coefficient is permanent. Amp MiserTM types are therefore ideal for use on galvanised slider beds. Due to the enhanced Texglide technology in Amp Miser 2.0, the fric-tion coefficient was halved compared with the previous types. In the case of galvanised slider beds it’s a consistent 0.15 and on non-galvanised steel approx. 0.1.


FaceVACS-Entry

The system detects the person’s face, adjusts the position of the cameras according to the person’s height and then captures best-quality images that guarantee high verification accuracy. The software instantly verifies the live images against biometric photos stored in passports, other ID documents and/or facial image databases.

A proprietary sensor, able to distinguish between human faces and artifacts like printed images and masks, detects presentation attacks.

The product can be installed onto the glass door of an eGate, with cameras and feedback monitor in walking direction and positioned at eye level. This innovative approach allows for a natural flow through the gate; users can look and move straight ahead. The monitor shows the live image of the person and can display user instructions for fast adjustments to the face position and image quality. The user-friendly approach guarantees optimal processing times; travelers can pass through the gate in less than 15 seconds.

Oleosmart-PR-C-NST
ACO Severin Ahlmann GmbH & Co. KG, Germany

Efficient water purification

The ACO Oleosmart-PR-C-NST is the perfect solution to fulfill challenging requirements with regard to high inflow rates and large sludge volumes. After the waste water enters the separator, it is conveyed straight downwards via a baffle and then divided into three streams in the coalescence channel. This division results in a noticeable reduction of turbulence, thus enhancing the separation process. Perforated plates which cause different flows and flow changes are installed perpendicularly to the direction of flow in the coalescence channel. Hereby inherent coalescence - oil droplets merging - is promoted, and coalescence takes place on the perforated plates. After the separation process is completed, the light liquids accumulate on the water surface and the sediments sink into the optimized sludge trap.
With this innovative product ACO meets the growing challenges of climate change, water shortages and legal environmental regulations with high-performance, green-minded products in the field of separator technology for economical and ecologically sustainable water protection.

WALICLEAN
TEST-FUCHS GmbH, Austria

Innovative with lemon juice

Eco-friendly maintenance: WALICLEAN

Cleaning the aircraft’s toilet systems has always been time-consuming and complex. In the past different maintenance methods were applied several times a year to achieve the undisturbed functioning of the aircraft’s toilet system. Currently the toilet systems have to be cleaned with chemicals, high-pressure water and highly concentrated acids to remove the scale in the tubes. The highly aggressive acids have to be stored at considerable costs. The ambition of the innovative cleaning system WALICLEAN is to improve the work process and to reduce costs significantly.

WALICLEAN is based on a simple principle: a solution of standard citric acid and warm water circulates through the aircraft’s waste line with system compatible negative pressure. After the successful cleaning process the toilet system is rinsed with clear water. Austrian Airlines estimates that working with the new WALICLEAN cleaning method has saved approximately 7,165 litres of chemicals annually. Today 2,100 kg of environmentally friendly standard citric acid is used instead of aggressive chemicals. As a result, the environment is not harmed, employees are protected and storage, transportation and disposal conditions of aggressive chemicals have disappeared.
