Customized solutions for baggage logistics

Airport Baggage Handling Systems: From early baggage storage to baggage claim.

Airports are transshipment points for millions of passengers and their baggage. A hotspot for intralogistics applications with efficient conveyor systems that are optimally and safely connected to upstream and downstream systems. A system standstill and unconveyed baggage are an absolute no-go here! Therefore, the use of Industry 4.0 technology plays a very special role here and can make the decisive difference.

Baggage handling at the airport places the highest demands on conveyor systems:

  • High throughput of baggage or baggage sortation
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Easy service during operation
  • Low noise level
