Make passengers

And streamline your airport
processes along the way.

The demands that travellers place on airports are as varied as the passengers themselves: Business travellers want to reach their plane as quickly as possible, holidaymakers like to stroll in the duty-free area, and parents prefer to show their children the vehicles and aircraft on the tarmac. What they have in common is one thing: They don't want to spend a long time standing in queues.

Make passengers happy!

There are many reasons why airport operators should make passengers happy: 

Because happy passengers are completely relaxed when they get to the plane. Because happy passengers like to spend time in the restaurants and stores at the airport. And because happy passengers will be glad to come to your airport again.

But above all: happy passengers make airport operators, airlines and security authorities happy, too. For the same systems that reduce waiting times and make security checks convenient also improve orientation in the building, increase the level of security at the airport, and significantly reduce operating costs.

Magnetic's Momentum® series gives you the tools to meet these goals: With dynamic drive technology and comprehensive control of the passage process, we significantly speed up passenger processes, and the modular design and longevity of our control and drive technology make lengthy downtimes in the passenger area a thing of the past And thanks to the numerous color variants, materials and individual add-on parts, our new generation of barriers fits perfectly into your airport architecture and creates a high-quality, coherent appearance from entering the security area to boarding.

Make it yours!

Most systems integrators in the airport sector focus on the development of digital infrastructures. This includes security architectures for authorities as well as common-use infrastructures that all airlines can access equally.

However, the central passenger processes require not only digital but also physical structures that guide travellers and effectively deny access to unauthorised persons. With Momentum®, Magnetic offers you the hardware for your software solutions. Adapt the design and technology exactly to your needs: with individual colours or stainless steel, with your readers for documents and biometrics, with plenty of space for your computing units. Make your choice – and make it yours.

Speed up Immigration!

The demands on border control are continuously rising: Airport companies are recording ever-increasing numbers of travellers, security authorities are striving for seamless digital recording of all border crossings, and travellers themselves are placing more and more value on speed and convenience at the airport.

Magnetic has developed mBorder to meet all these requirements. Like all airport systems of the Momentum® series, the ABC gate is extremely modular. With a variety of colours and different entry modules, mBorder is visually customisable. Above all, it can be technically equipped with all common document readers and biometric scanners and offers additional installation space for customised hardware. This and the sophisticated control unit allow mBorder to be seamlessly integrated into higher-level common-use and security infrastructures.

Thanks to a well-designed passage process, mBorder significantly reduces control times at the border crossing. The displays and lighting elements intuitively guide passengers through the control process, and the patented Single Door Exit (SDE) automatically brings facial recognition and iris scanners to eye level. 

Use mBorder and automate border control – so your security staff can focus their attention on those who require it!
