Baggage conveyor

The baggage conveyor is a belt conveyor (horizontal or inclined, to go up ou to down). It is used for the transport in baggage handling systems (BHS).

MATREX designs and manufactures 4 belt conveyors :

  • Baggage collector conveyor
  • Feed conveyor
  • Sequencing conveyor
  • Orthogonal conveyor

Each belt conveyor has a specific function in the BHS. They allow baggage to be transferred in the same direction or to make 90° changes in direction.

Baggage collector conveyor

The baggage collector conveyor is connected to the baggage check-in conveyor. It allows to group the baggage and to move it to the baggage sorting. The baggage can be injected manually by the stewardess (visual injection), or automatically using sensors and an encoder (virtual windowing). It can be installed in the passenger area (brushed stainless steel cladding) or in the baggage area (steel cladding) with a partition wall.

Feed conveyor

The feed conveyor allows the separation of the baggage to ensure optimal tracking before and after the security check. Baggage separation is achieved by increasing the speed between the feed conveyor and the previous conveyors. The feed conveyor allows the baggage to be injected one by one into the screening machines avoiding the saturation of the sorting lines.

Sequencing conveyor

The sequencing conveyor is used to inject baggage on a baggage reclaim carousel. The injection is carried out with a virtual window system and a baggage presence detection cell located on the carousel in front of the injection area.

Orthogonal conveyor

The orthogonal conveyor allows the transfer of baggage at 90°, from one conveyor to another. To achieve this transfer, the belt must be sliding, rigid and transverse.
