Baggage Transport and Sorting

We offer tailored solutions for baggage handling: from dependable and effective conveyor belts all the way to our fast and efficient tray technology – including our innovative tilt-tray sorters.

 

Baggage Storage

A high-performance baggage storage system is especially necessary for airports that offer early baggage check-in. At hub airports with a high number of transfer passengers, the storage system acts as a baggage buffer for peak operations. The baggage is held in the Early Bag Store until the respective flight is ready to be processed.

Baggage make-up and reclaim

Our high-performance baggage carousels available in countless configurations can be employed in passenger areas with elegant stainless-steel cladding or in the make-up sorting halls in a simpler design. Maintenance is made simple through easy access to both the drive and the drive belt.

Software solutions for baggage handling systems

With increasing passenger traffic on the one hand and limited airport capacities on the other, airport operators often find themselves up against great challenges to keep airports running reliably and stably. Help is at hand with our services and solutions across the entire automation pyramid: from low-level hardware and controls to high-level information technology. We ensure situational awareness at all times.

Early Bag Store (EBS)

The early bag store from Siemens goes under the name VarioStore and is operated like a high-bay warehouse. It uses the Lift&Run system which is considerably more flexible and efficient than comparable solutions. Vertical movements are executed by lifting devices and horizontal movements by shuttles. These movements take place simultaneously but independently of one another. As a result, throughput and redundancy can be significantly increased.
