Modernization of air cargo handling systems

We are specialists in the modernization of automated logistic systems. The shelves and the transport technique in these facilities are often after many years still in good condition. However, after years the electric equipment and the IT systems are faced with problems. Spare parts are no longer available, the manufacturer's support has been stopped, new hardware components are not compatible.

Unitechnik Systems realizes since decades the process control technique of air cargo facilities and other logistics systems. The modernization of these facilities belongs to the strengths of Unitechnik. Excellent project management and a conscientious quality control ensure short realization periods and a quick restart of the installation. Subject to the customer's need, we modernize the facility during running operation, or as a „Big Bang" in a brief downtime phase of the air cargo handling system.

Automated freight loading

Unitechnik Automatisierungs GmbH has developed a solution for loading ULD containers automatically. This solution is based on a luggage loading robot and is characterized by a patented gripper hand. The robot has been awarded the Innovation Award Berlin/Brandenburg and most recently won a contest of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

Advantages of automated freight loading:

  • Relieving employees from heavy physical labor
  • Cost savings
  • Process safety
  • Automatic tracking
  • 24/7/365 availability
