The Hamburg Airport baggage handling system processes and sorts 8,700 items of baggage per hour. Every year, about nine million items of baggage pass through the airport. The baggage handling system must operate quickly and precisely; faults in the system mean delays in baggage transport and annoyed passengers. With the use of robust, plug-in NORD drive electronics with decentralised and control cabinet inverters, baggage handling proceeds precisely and flawlessly.
