MUNICH - Smiths Detection, a threat detection and security screening technology company in Hempstead, U.K., announced that it will supply Munich Airport with 60 HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX carry-on baggage scanners. Smiths says the HI-SCAN 6040 can reduce security screening times to just a third of current tech.

The ECAC EDS CB C3 approved cabin baggage screening system uses computed tomography (CT) X-ray scanning to produce 3D images alongside Smiths Detection’s digital expertise eliminates the need to remove electronic devices, liquids and gels from hand luggage. The technology also reduces the numbers of trays that need to be returned, which ultimately speeds up the security screening process and improves passenger and security operator experience.

The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX is the most energy efficient scanner of its type worldwide, featuring low noise levels, zero vibration, and a 30% higher belt speed than other CT X-ray scanners – helping to promote a calmer checkpoint.

Director Sales Germany, Markus Rossmeisl, Smiths Detection, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Munich Airport to supply our industry leading CT checkpoint scanner. Providing an improved security screening experience, the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX will give passengers more time to relax prior to their flight. At the same time, the systems have been able to improve security and reduce burden on operators. Creating a better, faster, safer experience for all.”
