The third smart product to be launched by emaratech is the Intelligent Baggage Handling System that offers an end-to-end baggage handling system based on LEAN principles, with the aim to create an efficient, intelligent, and lift-free process of inbound and outbound baggage at airports. The departure system consists of two elements, the Capacity Booster Storage (CBS) and the Make-Up Station. The CBS system acts as a buffer area that stores all incoming checked-in baggage, pre-sorted into destinations, throughout the individual destinations check-in windows. The Make-Up station rapidly sorts and makes-up to 1200 BAX/hour into carts for loading departing aircrafts. The arrival setup consists of an arrival station that can be connected to a wide variety of reclaim carousels. Implementing emaratech’s Intelligent solution will increase handling efficiency as well provide a safe and manual lift-free work environment, providing value for the airport, the ground handler, the airline, and last but not least, the passenger.
