Latest X-Ray threat detection equipment deployed at East Midlands Airport
Totalpost is the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor of the leading X-Ray threat detection technology from USA based Astrophysics Inc.
East Midlands Airport Handling purchased an Astrophysics XIS-100DV from Totalpost following a big contract win which saw them securing, screening and handling cargo to be delivered from their base at East Midlands airport toNorthern Ireland.
Since taking delivery of the new screening system East Midlands Airport Handling has been able to screen an average of 10,000 kilos of cargo a night for export toNorthern Irelandalone and the equipment will enable the company to increase this as the need for the technology grows.
Martin Edwards, Commercial Projects Manager at East Midlands Airport Handling says, “From order point to installation the service from Totalpost has been faultless, the whole process has been extremely efficient and has been carried out in a very professional manner.”
We are very pleased with the performance of the new X-Ray threat detection screening system from Totalpost. We have found the system easy to use, extremely efficient and the imagery produced by the Dual View is extremely clear.”
David Hymers, Managing Director at Totalpost comments on the installation, “The installation atEastMidlandsAirportwent very well and we are pleased to have assisted East Midlands Airport Handling in their growth.”
The XIS-100DV has been designed specifically for the screening of non palletised goods such as parcels and freight and is used extensively in airports across the world. It utilises Dual View technology which uses two X-Ray sources to generate two independent perspectives for better detection, companies that don’t use Dual View have to screen every single piece of cargo twice which impacts on screening efficiency.
Where the application requires Dual View screening (to comply with the latest DfT and TSA regulations) of palletised air freight in sizes up to the maximum height of lower deck cargo then larger systems are available from Totalpost including the largest tunnel size of 1.8 x 1.8m and 320kv and above generator power.
