Model 787

Claim Conveyor


The inclined friction drive claim conveyor provides an endless inclined conveying surface, enabling it to serve two primary functions within the baggage handling environment:

  • Baggage Reclaim – Usually located in passenger areas and fully clad in stainless steel.

  • Flight Make-Up – Usually located within the baggage hall and supplied as an integral part of a Departures or Transfer bag handling system. The conveyor is usually finished in galvanised or painted mild steel for this application.

Model 787 Inclined Claim Conveyor

The Model 787 Claim Conveyor is designed for ease of installation and maintenance. It may be fed by multiple conveyor lines. A complete inclined claim conveyor circuit is made up of any number of straights, normal curves, or reverse curve sections.

The Model 787 Claim Conveyor has the ability to be supplied with raised sidewalls opposite feed points and kick strips around the outer periphery of the carousel circuit. An infill can also be provided in the centre of the claim conveyor regardless of the shape of the carousel circuit.

Model 787 Inclined Claim Conveyor General Description

Circuit Assembly
The friction driven inclined claim conveyor is assembled into a continuous loop built up using modular units. The main components are straight beds, normal curves, reverse curves and drive units. The straight beds are a maximum of 3.0m in length, normal curves have a mean radius of 1500mm and are supplied up to a maximum angle of 45o, the reverse curves have a mean radius of 4500mm and supplied up to 30o maximum angle. The drive unit is fitted into a straight bed, usually at the end of the most heavily loaded straight section. A single drive unit has sufficient capability to drive a claim conveyor with a chain length of 50 to 75m depending on loading. When the claim conveyor installation is above 75m additional drive units are added.


Bed Section
The track support fabrication is manufactured from rolled hollow section and press formed steel and is utilised to support the central chain track in addition to the shrouds, wheel support angles, kick plates and adjustable supports. The track support fabrication is fitted at intervals of 1.5 metres.

Tow chain links are made of cast aluminium. Each link is provided with a take-up mechanism which is used for adjusting the length of the whole closed chain loop. A wheel with a quiet running polyurethane tyre is fitted on each chain link providing side guidance.

Slat and Slat Assembly
Synthetic rubber slats are 1200mm long and 8mm thick.  A pressed steel slat carrier is mounted on each chain link at 250mm pitch and carries a urethane tyred support wheels at both top and bottom for quite, smooth operation.  Rubber slats and support buffers are mounted to each carrier to provide a continuous carrying surface.

Friction Drive
The friction drive uses a set of elastically applied pinch rollers which transfer friction force via a driven ribbed belt to the tow chain. Slat carriers fitted with rubber slats are connected to each link, thus moving all slats around the circuit.

The carousel is controlled with a frequency inverter to ensure the equipment gives a smooth start even when fully loaded.

In anticipation of its Baggage Handling System upgrade, works on which have already commenced, Malta International Airport is conducting a series of exercises to ensure a seamless transition period, while also testing its preparedness in the event of baggage processing malfunctions.

While there is only a slim possibility of complete baggage processing malfunctions, MIA is conducting preparedness exercises, aimed at testing the robustness of the company's business continuity plan. These ensure that the airport team, stakeholders operating at the terminal and back-up infrastructures are fully equipped to handle such a situation in a way that causes minimal inconvenience to passengers.

The investment in a new state-of-the-art Baggage Handling System, supplied by industry leaders Daifuku Logan, will also be laying the groundwork for full compliance with the European Civil Aviation Conference's provision stipulating that by 2020 every European airport must possess a hold baggage screening capability that combines x-ray and computed topography technology.

The new Baggage Handling System will pave the way for the forthcoming installation of eight new check-in desks which will increase the airport's throughput and efficiency. This infrastructure project will also allow MIA to continue adding capacity in future expansion plans.

The BHS upgrade forms part of MIA's Terminal Reconfiguration project through which the company has invested €12m in infrastructural improvements with the aim of further enhancing its guests' airport experience.
