In order to meet EU standards for new x-ray technology for explosives detection at Stuttgart airport had to change their x-ray machines. An all new, up-to-date x-ray technology was integrated to make sure that new explosives in case of terror can be detected. KLATT as general contractor delivered the conveyor system as well as the complete steel construction, which was also produced by KLATT, due to much higher weight of the new x-ray machines generation. Furthermore the control system including the connection to the airports control system was part of the scope.
Eight "old" x-ray machines were replaced by five new, so called "combined devices". The modification was diveded into 8 commissioning-steps in order to guarantee to ongoing operation at the airport without disturbances and interruptions.
