Baggage Screening System
In-line conveyor systems inspect every bag with multi-step scanning procedures that utilize x-rays and Explosion Detection Systems (EDS). The system sends bags that clear the inspection on to the airport loading area and divert suspect bags to a separate area for further inspection.
Conveyor and Sortation Systems
Daifuku's baggage transport and sorting solutions include versatile belt conveyors capable of handling baggage of virtually any shape and size as well as tilt-tray sorters and package tray systems for ensuring that every piece of baggage gets transported and sorted properly. From small- and medium-sized local airports to major international hub airports, Daifuku builds optimal systems and operation frameworks.
Daifuku's solutions enable airports to manage baggage in interim storage when passengers check-in early for flights or need to make a layover. Airports can install conveyor-based storage lines or even integrate equipment with automatic warehouses in a baggage tray system.
Carousel-type conveyors allow personnel to do all their work at a given location. In situations involving large throughput loads, assigning multiple personnel members to the task can accelerate the loading process.
Implementing a carousel-type conveyor gives large numbers of travelers simultaneous baggage access. The system boasts a safety-oriented design that prevents travelers from getting their hands pinched in moving parts and safeguards against entanglement.
This solution enables users to monitor baggage handling systems in real time. With the ability to keep a constant eye on transport route status, airports can boost their overall operational efficiency levels.
