Vanderlande is currently experiencing issues related to dust created within the operation of Tubtrax baggage handling equipment at our airport customers.

The dust is created in several parts of the system and sticks to the static loaded HDPE carrier. Whenever the static carrier is neutralized or undergoes an abrupt impact the accumulated dust falls off of the carrier onto the floor or sticks to system equipment.

This leads to reduced system reliability/performance (e.g. blocked PECs, blocked heat sinks) and has a negative effect on system quality perception of the customer.

We are looking for a recommended solution incl. design on how to mitigate this issue.


The assignment is for the Technology department (also known as Research and Development). You will be working in the stream ‘Transport and Sort Airports’ which is responsible for the entire platform (Equipment and OT-Software) for baggage handling systems for Airports. The department is made out of 5 teams, 2 Veghel based development teams, 1 Veghel based system team and 2 Pune (India) based development teams. The focus of these teams is the development of a globally used baggage handling portfolio, amongst others the Tubtrax product line.


  • Gap analysis on already available knowledge/documentation and applicability of this on the current Tubtrax equipment.
  • Analysis of the optimal dust removal technique taking into account cross-functional requirements
  • 3D solution design and
  • Concept validation of the solution design
