Smiths Detection to Transform Security Screening at Munich Airport With 60 3d Cabin Bag Scanners

  • Over 30 million passengers will soon pass through security in a third of the time

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, today announces that it will supply Munich Airport with 60 HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX carry-on baggage scanners, which should see more than 30 million annual passengers speed through security screening in a third of the time.

The ECAC EDS CB C3 approved cabin baggage screening system harnesses the power of computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanning to produce 3D images alongside Smiths Detection’s industry leading digital expertise, therefore eliminating the need to remove electronic devices, liquids and gels from hand luggage. The technology also reduces the numbers of trays that need to be returned, which ultimately speeds up the security screening process and improves passenger and security operator experience.

With over 1000 units sold globally, the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is the most energy efficient scanner of its type worldwide, featuring low noise levels, zero vibration, and a 30% higher belt speed than other CT X-ray scanners – helping to promote a calmer checkpoint.
