Description

ICA
manufactures equipment to automate the handling of food and beverage air
catering carts between flights. This system can be sold as a complete solution
or in segments, which when integrated form the whole turnkey solution.

One
of ICA previous projects involved an iconic Australian airline company, who
commissioned a Queensland construction firm to build a new air catering
facility as part of its multi million-dollar airport upgrade. This multifaceted
project was a complex process, so the construction firm commissioned Industrial
Conveying (Aust) Pty Ltd (ICA) to design and manufacture some of the
specialised components that facilitate the handling of food and beverage carts
as they pass through the facility.

ICA
custom designed and manufactured a system that automates the handling of food
and beverage carts in between flights. The facility tracks, receives, unloads
waste, washes, loads and redeploys airline catering carts according to the requirements
of each carrier, aircraft type and catering requirement.

ICA
custom-designed equipment accommodates the different physical dimensions, wheel
alignment and centre of gravity for each cart.
