Smiths wins contract for Munich airport

London, UK and Munich, Germany

Smiths Detection has been contracted to supply 60 Hi-Scan 6040 CTIX baggage scanners to Munich airport.

Smiths Detection, a global leader in threat detection and security screening technologies, has succeeded in a tender to supply Munich Airport with 60 Hi-Scan 6040 CTIX carry-on baggage scanners, which should, according to the company, see more than 30 million annual passengers speed through security screening in about 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 marketed as 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.

Director Sales Germany, Markus Rossmeisl, Smiths Detection, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Munich Airport to supply our industry leading CT checkpoint scanner. Providing an improved security screening experience, the Hi-Scan 6040 CTIX will give passengers more time to relax prior to their flight. At the same time, the systems have been able to improve security and reduce burden on operators. Creating a better, faster, safer experience for all.”

Smiths Detection’s units are set to be delivered from January 2024.
