Feb 18 2013 , Dubai
Datalogic S.p.A. is a global leader in automatic identification and total solutions provider of bar code readers, data collection mobile computers and vision systems.
These new projects account for over 60 state-of-the art reading stations with more reading stations to be implemented during the next months, the company said in a statement.
Today, with active systems in more than 100 airports, Datalogic is expanding its leading position in this sector even further, with the recent handover of new baggage handling systems (BHS) for Calcutta Airport in India, Bogota Airport in Colombia, Lodz Airport in Poland and Dubai airport, it said.
Datalogic has a significant order book for installations in new airport terminals in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), St Petersburg (Russia), in Oman, Bangalore (India) and also a recently awarded project for Bali Airport in Indonesia.
Mauro Sacchetto, Datalogic Group's CEO, said: "We are very pleased that Datalogic's solutions are being successfully employed in airports all over the world, in particular in emerging markets where a consistent increase in passenger numbers is to be expected.
"Thanks to the advanced technology of Datalogic's solutions we are able to meet the most demanding needs of modern airports that are implementing our cutting edge sorting and conveying systems for fully automated baggage handling."
Datalogic is a pioneer and early adopter of scanning solutions for baggage handling, with the first automatic tag reader (ATR) installation worldwide in Milan's Linate airport in 1984.
