Logistics automation firm Vanderlande has installed its first PAX MX2 security screening system at Frankfurt Airport in Germany.

This system features a dual-lane concept, which the company claims allows for ‘more efficient’ screening.

Vanderlande Airport and Parcel Solutions executive vice-president Andrew Manship said: “We’re delighted that Frankfurt Airport has chosen our Pax MX2 dual-lane concept, which is the first of its kind to receive certification in Germany.

“We are looking forward to strengthening and extending our relationship with the airport and will offer support through our local presence in Germany. The delivery of this world-first solution shows what can be achieved through close cooperation with our partner airports.”

PAX MX2 is designed to help travellers drop off and pick up their hand luggage from two parallel lanes before and after the screening machine.

This is claimed to improve the passenger experience and shorten queues.

The waist-height tray feeding, empty tray recognition system (ETRS), automated tray return system (ATRS), and a layout designed for optimal ergonomics will also cut manual tasks performed by both agents and passengers.

Additionally, the company said that its screening system will allow Frankfurt Airport to optimise the use of screening equipment and resources, as well as make optimal use of its floorspace.

Vanderlande Airport and Parcel Solutions executive managing director Timothy Mathews said: “PAX MX2 is literally a perfect fit for Frankfurt Airport because it makes best use of limited space in their security checkpoints.

“Plus, the solution provides the optimal balance between delivering essential security requirements and operational efficiency.”
