One of the most common uses for Axelent's machine guards is alongside conveyor belts and material transporters. Probably the most well-known of them all is the airport baggage conveyor.
The bit of the conveyor that passengers see is just a tiny part of the enormous system at work behind the scenes at airports. It is certainly impressive that you can check-in your baggage in one place, in one country, and then (hopefully) pick it up somewhere else in the world.
But this conveyor system also entails safety risks for the people working behind the scenes with your baggage. In addition to the moving conveyors, baggage is transported here that could weight up to 30 kilos.
Axelent has had the privilege of equipping and creating safe airports around virtually the whole world. Below is a list of airports where Axelent's X-Guard has created a safe workplace for airport workers. And your baggage, of course.
Charles de Gaulle, France
Manchester Airport, UK
One of the biggest safety hazards is protective equipment with locks that can be manipulated. Axelent has addressed this problem with a lock that cannot be manipulated. The lock will help to prevent many accidents and stoppages.
