08/03/2011 - Baggage handling by means of an INDEVA Liftronic EASY: more ergonomics and safety
Different Airport Handling Companies have installed INDEVAs model Liftronic Easy for handling baggage, in order to comply with the European Directives on Ergonomics and Safety in the manual material handling.
The INDEVA are known for being the solution that turns manual load handling really safe and ergonomic.
The INDEVA, in fact, feature the ability to respond immediately to the operator slight push down/upwards, with no inertia forces at all , thus requiring no effort to operator, not even in the direction change.
The operator, with his hand on the sensitive handle, can move the load at the desired speed in a natural and intuitive way; the end effector, with or without the load, remains perfectly still in the position the operator leaves it . Load positioning can be carried out in a very precise and quick way.
The horizontal move is very easy and effortless as well, thanks to the INDEVA's very light structure.
The INDEVA are chosen by the Airport Handling Companies especially for their feature of being auto weight -sense and auto -balancing. The operator che pick different pieces of baggage without worrying at all about the weight difference from one piece to another. The INDEVA do not need any adjusting as the load weight changes: they immediately and automatically get adjusted to the new weight.
Only the INDEVA , being Intelligent Devices for Handling, are auto weight sense and auto balancing, thanks to the state of the art electronic technology used and tested by Scaglia NDEVA since many years.
Traditional pneumatic manipulators and other lifting equipments such as hoists, move and react slower, are heavier and bulkier, are not auto-weight sense and auto balancing. They are, therefore, not suitable for baggage handling.
