The Automation Baggage Handling System.
1 Million Tons of Bags Are being handled manually per year in a large airport
(ca. 50 Mio Pax/y) like Dubai, Amsterdam, Singapore or Denver
One bag handle typically loads 400 bags per shift.
Average Bag weight=20 kg
8tons per shift
40 tons per week
160 tons per month
1600 tons per year
Technology does not Replace Humans, All technologies require at least human supervision & control, Challenge is to find best combination of human and technological capabilities (efficiency, acceptance, health & safety) and We have Closed this Automation Gap.
Determination of shape, size, position and orientation of next bag Using 2 synchronized IR Laser Scanner
Standard 6-axis-industry robot
Efficiency & Coast Reduction:
Health & Ergonomics:
Full Process Integration:
Handing of Bags:
Image & public perception:
Benefit depends on efficient use of loading cell:
limited possibilities to handle load peaks
baggage loading cell design is flexible & modular; thus, it can be optimized
Overall System Performance depends on:
