Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) has launched its mobile inspection table (MIT) system from Daifuku Airport Technologies (ATec).

MITs are mobile robots that offer a tailored solution for improved workspace efficiency. The system is designed for the checked bag reconciliation area.

MITs deliver bags directly to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents.

Bags can be searched while on the MIT’s stainless-steel surface and routed automatically back to the appropriate conveyor system after inspection.

“The system has helped to boost the number of TSA search stations from eight to ten.”

Dallas Love Field Airport logistics and systems manager Tim Smith said: “As part of our continued commitment to lead the evolution of the airport experience, Dallas Love Field is always looking for newer, better and faster technology to reach new heights in terms of economy of scale.

“We successfully hosted an influx of travellers during the Thanksgiving holiday, and with our new mobile inspection table robotic technology were able to process a record number of bags with greater efficiency than ever before.”

The project was started to expand baggage search capacity for the existing in-line baggage screening system. Installation of the MIT system was phased to avoid impacting daily operations.

The system has helped to boost the number of TSA search stations from eight to ten.

The final system configuration is expected to become operational in March next year and will include 16 new search stations, 44 MITs, and improved bag tag identification.
