Vanderlande is proud to announce the conditional release for sales of the TUBTRAX high-capacity baggage unloader. This was successfully introduced at the inter airport Europe exhibition in Munich on 6-9 October. The TUBTRAX exhibit featured a ‘live’ unloading demonstration handling nearly 3,000 carriers per hour, which attracted many visitors and admirers.
TUBTRAX offers accuracy, long life expectancy and high levels of availability. It can also be used in mixed flow situations (as a static unloader), which is an industry first. This means that standard-sized baggage can be processed in combination with oversized baggage, saving airports manual handling costs.
The TUBTRAX system makes use of dynamic high-capacity unloader units and offers an unprecedented unloading capacity. To reach this optimum volume, carriers no longer need to stop during the unloading process. While moving at two metres-per-second, the carrier is tilted to its unloading angle in a wave-like motion.
In addition, the dynamic high-capacity unloader units can be used in the automated processing of oversized baggage. Special out-of-gauge carriers can also be unloaded without further manual intervention, improving process sustainability and reducing operational costs.
