Crisplant, part of BEUMER Group and a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems will highlight the latest automated baggage handling technologies at Airport Exchange 2011, in the National Exhibition Centre, Abu Dhabi, from 28 to 30 November 2011.

The stand will feature a section of the energy-efficient tote-based CrisBag® conveyor system as well as a video of a state-of-the-art baggage handling system in operation at Helsinki Airport. The Helsinki system, which was designed, manufactured and installed by Crisplant, integrates a CrisBag conveyor, with a high-speed transport system and the industry’s most energy-efficient high-speed tilt-tray sorter.
