Airport Technologies (ATec), a provider of airport baggage handling systems, has announced its Mobile Inspection Table (MIT) system has gone live at Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL), the company said.
This project was initiated to expand baggage search capacity for the existing in-line baggage screening system. Flexibility of the MIT system facilitated a phased approach to the expansion project without impacting daily operations. The current phase went live November 16, 2017 and increased the number of TSA (Transportation Security Administration) search stations from eight to ten. The final system configuration, scheduled for completion in March 2018, will include sixteen new search stations, 44 MIT´s, and enhanced bag tag identification.
MITs are mobile robots that provide a customized solution for optimal flexibility and improved workspace efficiency. MITs are a quiet, safe, and scalable approach to the checked bag reconciliation area. MITs also offer a “goods to person” ergonomics approach by delivering bags directly to TSA agents, eliminating lifting, twisting or turning. Bags are searched directly while on the MIT´s stainless-steel surface and routed automatically back to the appropriate conveyor system after inspection.
