Since its introduction at Manchester Airport in the United Kingdom in 2007, we have completed more than 500 Mach-SmartLane instalments at more than 100 leading airports across the globe, including Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and John F. Kennedy International Airport, (JFK) in New York.
Mach-SmartLane is an automated tray handling system that vastly reduces queue times, enhances operational efficiency, lowers staffing levels and improves the working environment for checkpoint personnel. The modular construction of Mach-SmartLane allows every application to be uniquely constructed – the system can be effectively configured even when space is limited. It is ergonomically designed to ensure easy loading and unloading of baggage and incorporates parallel loading techniques so slow travelers do not inhibit the movement of fellow passengers. Unlike traditional labor-intensive checkpoints, Mach-SmartLane reduces checkpoint staffing levels and allows checkpoint personnel to process more people in a secure, controlled, low-pressure environment.
L3 MacDonald Humfrey Automation were the first company to receive approval to integrate the Mach-SmartLane system with Rapiscan Systems and Smiths Detection X-ray machines. An agnostic system, Mach-SmartLane also integrates seamlessly with ClearScan (L3 SDS product), ProVision 2 (L3 SDS product), Analogic, IDSS and Rohde & Schwarz.
