Airport baggage handling systems

Airport baggage handling systems

From early baggage storage to baggage delivery

Airports are not only transit hubs for millions of passengers, but also for a large amount of baggage and cargo.

They are a hotspot for intralogistical applications with efficient conveyors that are optimally and securely connected to upstream and downstream systems.

The transport of baggage at the airport poses extreme requirements for conveyor systems:

  • High throughput of bags or bag sorting
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Easy service during running operation
  • Low noise levels

Early baggage: reliable storage and retrieval.

  • High storage availability thanks to efficient automation solutions with tried-and-tested technology for storage and retrieval units
  • Efficient components for high baggage throughput
  • Modular technology functions for greater flexibility
  • Optimised transport movements for high efficiency
  • DC-bus connection between travel and hoist drives for reduced energy consumption
  • Regenerative modules for optimal energy balance

Check-in: perfect timing right from the start.

  • Simple and efficient decentralised drive solution for fast and exact baggage assignment
  • Especially quiet operation thanks to the extremely high quality of the components
  • High-efficiency gearbox for reduced energy consumption
  • Soft start and deceleration with adjustable ramp for low maintenance
  • Freely adjustable speed for streamlined use of different drives
  • Reduced wiring complexity thanks to electronic contactor and motor protection function

Belt conveyors: efficiency in motion.

  • Simple and efficient decentralised drive solution for fast conveyor speeds
  • High reliability thanks to 70 years of experience in materials handling technology
  • Reduced energy consumption through optimisations in no-load and partial load operation as well as use of the "VFC eco" energy saving function
  • Soft start and deceleration with adjustable ramp for low maintenance
  • Decentralised drive concept for minimal installation and wiring complexity

Dish conveyor belts for luggage: simply very reliable.

  • Decentralised drive solution for extremely fast conveyor speeds over long stretches
  • Integrated EcoMode for reduced energy consumption
  • Softstart and deceleration with adjustable ramps protect material and transported goods
  • Reduced cabling by getting rid of the previous contactor or starter solutions

Ejectors: for especially selective sorting.

  • Highly dynamic drive technology with premium control quality for directing individual bags and cases into one output for final sorting or routing purposes
  • Reduced energy consumption through optimisations in no-load and partial load operation as well as use of the "VFC eco" energy saving function
  • Pluggable technology for fast and easy replacement during maintenance

Baggage reclaim: efficiency on a revolving belt.

  • Especially quiet operation thanks to the extremely high quality of the components
  • Reduced energy consumption through optimisations in no-load and partial load operation as well as use of the "VFC eco" energy saving function
  • Increased system stability thanks to drives that can handle overload
  • Pluggable technology for fast and easy replacement during maintenance
