Airport Baggage Handling Conveyors
Scissor Lift Conveyor - For an ergonomic and safe method of lifting out of gauge or over weight baggage the Scissor Lift Conveyor ensures safety of the operator, by taking the manual handling risk away the baggage handling staff can load or unload the conveyor at trolley level.
For Landside operations the Scissor Lift conveyor is rigidly constructed on to a mild steel sub-frame, with x240 grit finish stainless steel casings. For Airside operations choices of galvanised or powder coated mild steel casings are available.

Merge Conveyor - The merge conveyor solves the problem of injecting luggage from different angles to a main conveyor at busy airports. The control system manages the merging of the luggage to ensure there are no clashes resulting in bag jams.
The merge conveyor comprises twelve belts, each 80 mm wide but of differing lengths arranged to provide a live surface from square end in feed position to a stepped discharge position set at 45°.
Each belt has a ribbed surface and is tracked by crowned head and tail pulleys. The conveyor belting is flame retardant in accordance with ISO340. At the tail all belts pass around a common crowned drive drum which is driven by a shaft mounted GMU complete with torque arm fixings located on the long side of the conveyor.
At the discharge each belt passes around an individual roller which rotates on a fixed shaft with internal bearings. A plastic infill strip is provided to give minimum gaps around the discharge rollers and is site trimmed to length so providing a good fit to adjacent equipment.
Individual belt tension is achieved by factory clipping each belt to a specific calculated length which, when fitted, provides the ideal tension thus removing the need for complex individual tensioning arrangements.
Guards are provided for the conveyor undersides and around the drive drum while extended side plates are provided 400 mm high above belt level. The whole conveyor is mounted on adjustable legs giving a maximum of one metre ground clearance to the belt.
Quick belt changes are realised by 'slipping' the damaged/broken belt off its pulleys and through an access plate located in the short side of the conveyor. The replacement belt is fed through the access plate and located on the relevant pulleys.
Baggage Cart System - The Baggage Cart System allows airports the flexibility to automatically move slug of 25-30 carts between airside and landside or between floors from Departures to Arrivals or vice versa.
The Baggage Cart conveyor uses two types of conveying technologies, firstly a flat conveyor textured grip belt, which transports the carts and secondly dual chain conveyors mounted on opposite sides of the system hold the carts in place, preventing them from rolling away or separating while traveling the 40º incline to reach the upper or lower floors.
Used together with synchronized roller shutter doors the conveyor can span from landside of the airport, which is the normal passenger terminal across to the baggage reclaim which is classed as a secure area because of the access to the aircraft. The synchronized roller shutter doors ensure no one can bypass the stringent airport security checks.
The complex design of the Baggage Cart Conveyor also caters for a change in the dimensions of the carts. Special adjustable sliding supports are installed to enable the alteration of the width of the conveyor that allows for cart upgrades and carts from different suppliers.
