BAGgate

World Leaders in Common Use Bag Drop Solutions

BCS, with air transport communications and IT specialist, SITA, unveiled a comprehensive self-service baggage check-in solution for common-use platforms that provides passengers with total self-service with issue of boarding passes and bag tags at the self service check-in kiosk followed by a fully automated acceptance of the bags via the BCS BAGgate™.

Marc Michel, BCS General Manager Services and Solutions said the recent SITA self service survey showed 70% of passengers would tag their own bags if they could, and that BCS/SITA unique common use solution via BAGgate™ now delivered the missing links in unassisted bag drop to enable this.

With the BCS/SITA end to end self service solution passengers can check in at a kiosk for issue of boarding passes and now also bag tags printed for self tagging. Then they simply proceed to a self-service bag drop area where the BCS BAGgate™ automatically scans the bag tag ,reconciles the boarding pass and passenger, and then the bag is weighed, measured and dispatched for the flight without the need for agent intervention.

Daifuku Logan Ltd, one of the World’s leading manufacturers of automated baggage handling systems, in partnership with Logan KSEC, is pleased to announce the successful delivery of its largest ever state-of-the-art BNP specification baggage handling system for the brand new T3 Terminal at Wuhan Tianhe Airport in China.

 

 The baggage system compromises of 6 check-in islands, each with 20 check-in desks, 18 arrivals carousels, 6 transfer baggage lines, 4 manual coding lines, 48 EBS lanes and 8 screening lines. The screening lines have 6 automatic MV Xray machines and 4 automatic CT Xray machines with additional explosive trace detection and level 5 baggage resolution areas.

 

 At the heart of the system lie 4 of Daifuku Logan’s leading edge tilt tray sorters consisting of 1462 trays with 30 induction points and over 400 chutes.

 

Baggage identification is realised by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID ) integrated seamlessly into all systems, this coupled with the end to end data tracking is reaching identification rates far beyond what is possible with standard optical systems. Each tilt tray sorter chute is fitted with a final RFID based bag information display system which automatically reads the bag as the bag is loaded into the unit loading device (ULD).

 

 Critical systems, such as the tilt tray sorters, utilise the latest Hot Standby PLC’s and full redundant power and network installations to ensure the highest availability possible.

Higher level systems supplied include SAC, 3D SCADA, CCTV, maintenance management and ATR management servers.

A tote return system delivers empty totes from the baggage hall back to each of the check-in desk positions.

 

Construction of the 220,000m2 Terminal started in June 2013 at an estimated cost of 40 billion yuan (£4.6 billion), and project delivery included a new runway, new control tower noted to be the tallest in Asia and a transportation hub connecting the airport to the city with intercity railway and metro line.

Starting from August 31st, all flights from T1 (international, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) and T2 (domestic) were moved to Terminal 3, which is expected to accommodate 35 million passengers annually by 2020.

Daifuku Logan Ltd’s Managing Director, Ron Osborne stated:

“We are delighted with the new system, its leading edge, on time, on target delivery is a testament to the excellent working relationships and dialogue we have with the airport, the design teams for the terminal building, right down to all the sub-contracting companies since the projects conception.

We very much look forward to working closely with the airport on any of its future BHS project requirements”.
