We are pleased to announce our latest collaboration with Play Ground Handling. Thanks to this collaboration, handling operations have been made more efficient, faster and more sustainable.
Despite being a young company, Play Ground handling has invested heavily in the research and innovation sector. Thanks to them, the operations of loading unloading cargo and aircraft maintenance have improved a lot and we hope that this collaboration will last for a long time.
Their equipment is of the latest generation and the staff is highly qualified. In the following section you can find some of their equipment.
We have a 1500 m2 plot, in which 250m2 are built offices, 750m2 warehouse with direct access to airport access and additional 750m2 destined to working area, parking and storage facilities. As well as load, unload, and storage methods for goods of all nature ( standard docks, rollers, trenches, calibrated scales, cooling and freezing chambers, specific areas for valuable, vulnerable cargo and dangerous goods, etc)
The HI-SCAN 145180-2is pro is a quick and effective inspection system designed for conducting rigorous air cargo screening.
This system features two 200kV X-ray generators, one of which is placed under the conveyor to provide excellent penetration, high-resolution images, and easy access to maintenance and service.
HI-SCAN 145180-2is pro, has been included in the ‘qualified’ section of the Transportation Security Administration ’s (TSA) Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL).
The scanner was qualified by the TSA under the latest programme requirements to guarantee security of cargo on board aeroplanes.
Belt loaders are vehicles with conveyor belts for unloading and loading of baggage and cargo onto aircraft. A belt loader is positioned at the door sill of an aircraft hold (baggage compartment) during operation. Belt loaders are used for narrowbody aircraft, and the bulk hold of wide-body aircraft. Stowing baggage without containers is known as bulk loading.
Dollies for unit load device (ULD) and cargo pallets are standard sized flatbed trolley or platform, with many wheels, roller bars or ball bearings protruding above the top surface for easy loading and unloading of ULD and cargo pallets respectively.
Airport ground crew must load and unload cargo quickly and efficiently to keep on the same rigorous schedules airlines strive to keep. Crews use container loaders, which have a platform that raises and a platform that descends, to help them with this task. Wheels underneath the cargo then move the pallets in and out of the aircraft.
These vehicles empty and refill lavatories that are located on aircraft. While in flight, waste is stored in tanks. In between flights, lavatory trucks remove the waste and refill the tanks with a liquid that is a combination of water and disinfectant. While some airports feature self-powered lavatory trucks, others only have carts that are pulled by tug.
Potable Water Trucks
A potable water truck provides an efficient way for crews to transport potable - or safe, drinkable - water to aircraft. After going through a filtration process, the water is stored on the vehicle, safe from the elements. The water truck features a pump that is used to move the water to the aircraft.
In aviation, pushback is an airport procedure during which an aircraft is pushed backwards away from its parking position, usually at an airport gate by external power. Pushbacks are carried out by special, low-profile vehicles called pushback tractors or tugs.
The tugs and tractors at an airport have several purposes and represent the essential part of ground support services. They are used to move all equipment that can not move itself. This includes bag carts, mobile air conditioning units, air starters, and lavatory carts.
