Daifuku Co Ltd has announced its new Baggage Tray System (BTS), which will begin selling this month.
The BTS provides transportation and sortation of passenger bags from check-in counters to baggage make-up areas. Unlike conventional systems, it transports bags on individual trays, purportedly resulting in precise handling and tracking.
The company claims the conveyor can cover 1,969ft (600m) a minute and believe that this “will improve efficiency at busy airports worldwide.”
Daifuku is also offering an integrated baggage handling system, combining the BTS and tilt tray sorters with its high-density automated storage systems.
