Our conveyor solutions

Curve conveyor


General transport conveyor

The general transport conveyor is a straight belt conveyor used to transport all types of standard baggage and can be supplied with high side walls or stainless steel cladding to accommodate various uses throughout the airport.

This style of conveyor is designed to transport in a straight line and can be programmed to provide a variety of functions such as merging, accumulating, inducting, and sorting baggage.

General transport conveyors can be supplied as a horizontal surface or at any degree of incline or decline to a maximum angle of 20 degrees.

Merge conveyor

Highly functional in design, this conveyor features an angled edge (30° or 45°) where two conveyor lines to meet. This allows merging baggage to move from one conveyor line to another at either low or high speed. The merge conveyor can be programmed in a variety of configurations so that the merge priority is given to the appropriate conveyor line.

Collector conveyor

The collector conveyor performs a specific function of collecting baggage at the check-in area. Bags can be loaded directly onto the conveyor by the check-in operator or, if used with check-in conveyors, bags can be injected automatically.

Most typically constructed with a stainless steel rim, it can be used as a stand-alone belt conveyor or to collect bags that are transferred from the check-in conveyors.

Metering conveyor

The metering conveyor is a short straight conveyor used for metering or queuing bags, or it can be used for creating bag separation.

This unit is implemented before conveyor junctions, merges, or places where accumulation or separation is required. For this reason, the conveyor is designed with robust components to cope with a high number of stop/starts.

While there are standard sizes available, it is sufficiently flexible to accommodate variations in bed width, belt type, sidewall height, overall length, and conveying speed.
