Contract with Malca Amit

by Mark Rowe

Totalpost Services Plc has installed a Dual-View X-Ray security screening conveyor machine into Malca Amit’s freight handling premises at Heathrow.

Totalpost installed the Astrophysics 6545 DV at the beginning of July. This followed tendering by Malca Amit who were looking to upgrade their security screening machinery to Dual-View in line with upcoming Department for Transport (DfT) regulations.

The 6545 DV security screener is described as an X-Ray conveyor that includes dual view technology as well as a density alert system.

Totalpost reports that it carried out several site audits before the installation, finding that it was a small area in which to transport the machine within the building. The install took planning and removal of panels and generators.

Malca Amit specialise in the secure transportation of high value freight such as jewellery and watches. They ship worldwide but particularly to the Middle East and US. The freight is passed through the X-Ray once a day and then securely transported to Heathrow airport for shipping. Kevin Miles, Operations Manager at Malca Amit UK Ltd says: “There is so much regulation regarding international goods transportation, it is extremely important to utilise machinery that is of the highest standard.

“The X-Ray security screening device needed to be compact enough to fit into a small secure area and to have Dual-View to comply with new regulation. Totalpost were able to supply us with a state of the art system which fit this criteria. The 6545 DV is definitely saving us time. The operators really like the fact that it gives them the ability to move the object backwards and forwards remotely for a clearer view.”

David Hymers, pictured, Managing Director of Totalpost says: “We have happily found a niche in this market through providing high specification X-Ray security screening machinery coupled with a flexible and helpful service. In the first half of 2013 we secured over £1m of X-Ray orders and we are continuing to grow the service as we expand into other markets.”

The product company adds that new DfT regulations are gradually coming into force and by December 2015 all cargo must be scanned from two angles to enable threats to be better detected.
