Aalborg airport implements Smiths detection technology at checkpoints at Denmark airports

Houlberg Instrumentering A/S, a local distributor of Smiths Detection´s Technology, has announced it is supplying Aalborg Airport with iLane.evo, the latest in automated checkpoint lane technology and upgrading HI-SCAN 6040 aTiX scanners to enable passengers to leave electronics in their hand luggage, the company said.

This will create the most advanced airport-security checkpoints in Denmark and provide a fully integrated and networked solution.

The new iLane.evo checkpoint lanes are designed to eliminate bottlenecks, keep queues under control and keep people and baggage moving. For example, the parallel divest and extended reclaim areas both handle three passengers simultaneously. Any trays carrying suspicious items are automatically diverted to a secondary search area and, at the end of the process, all trays are automatically returned to the start. This high level of automation leaves operators free to focus on helping the travelling public.

Smiths Detection, part of Smiths Group, is a global leader in threat detection and screening technologies for aviation, ports and borders, urban security and defence.
