MacDonald Humfrey (Automation) Ltd Announces the launch of Mach-SmartTutorial® into the Mach-Secure® Family of Products

The new Mach-SmartTutorial® product is part of an ongoing development adopting Quadratica’s market leading X-Ray security training product X-Screen®

The Quadratica product integrates seamlessly with Mach-SmartLane® and Mach-SmartView® system to provide X-Ray Security Screening Officers the ability to undertake on-line X-Ray screening training in a live working environment without the need to decamp to dedicated training rooms.

MacDonald Humfrey (Automation) Ltd recognised a major issue in Airport outbound security halls with the continuous regulatory training requirements that Governments require on a mandatory basis.  

The disruption to the existing screening operations can be extensive with time, administration and management resources all being eroded to ensure the screening operatives have training rooms, facilities and equipment available at the allotted time.    

The principle advantages offered by the Mach-SmartTutorial® Product is the incorporation of certified training in a physical and realistic environment which has long been recognised as a desirable and important part of the training process. 

This holistic approach utilising the Mach-SmartTutorial® system allows the Security Screening Officers to undertake training at their workplace at a time to suit them and most importantly, airport operations.

In effect the training can be simply switched on during the interim quiet periods within normal shift operations.


The solution offers enormous benefits to an Airport Operation, the costs savings associated with the seamless Mach-SmartTutorial® solution are self explanatory but the unseen benefits with the knowledge that staff training is undertaken in a live, safe and managed environment, with all training logged and accounted for within the Mach-SEMS® (Security Efficiency Management System) is considered a major advance in Airport Security Management.

MacDonald Humfrey (Automation) Ltd evaluated the current specialists within the Security Training market before choosing and entering into discussions with the Market leader Quadratica UK Ltd.

These discussions have culminated in the product development of Mach-SmartTutorial® powered by the Quadratica X-Screen product along with the signing of an International partnership agreement between the two companies for the sale of Mach-SmartTutorial®
