Selected project: Rampsnake.
System for loading and unloading of aircraft.
Rampsnake is a flexible transport system for loading and unloading of aircraft. The Rampsnake project was one of the first big real user-driven projects in Denmark involving nearby all actors.
Loading and unloading an aircraft is a demanding job, where handlers carry baggage weighing up to 40 kg in the low confines of the planes cargo hold. The RampSnake, made up of a series of modules with two motorised rollers driving a conveyor belt, is a flexible transportation system enabling the operator to load and unload freight with minimal physical strain. In addition to reducing the daily physical load by up to 80%, RampSnake makes it possible to load planes 20% faster.
