Baggage Delivery Chutes

Application

Straight chutes, curved chutes and glacis are used throughout baggage handling systems to perform a multitude of functions.  These include:

  • Sortation chute fed from Tilt Tray or similar sorting device.

  • Late ‘bag drop’ at boarding gate.

  • Temporary storage device.

  • Vertical downward transportation of bags between floor levels.

Chutes & Glacis

Straight Chutes: Daifuku Logan straight chutes are designed to handle a wide range of product and convey them in a controlled manner whist causing the minimum disruption to baggage flow. 

Glacis: Daifuku Logan glacis are similar in design to our straight chutes but are capable of giving an optimum amount of storage area combined with the most effective use of floor space.

Spiral Chutes: Daifuku Logan spiral chutes are designed with the same principals in mind as straight chutes but have the added advantages of being able to accept multiple inputs into the same chute within a limited floor space. They have also been designed and profiled to allow product to ‘self start’ from any position along the chute

Specialised Chutes: Daifuku Logan also offer a range of specialised chutes, designed to perform specific tasks or functions within baggage handling systems. Such examples include ‘Petty Wheel’ transition chutes, gated chutes, dual output chutes, etc.

Chutes & Glacis
General Description

Straight Chutes & Glacis

Straight Chutes are custom designed to suit the product and application.  However, the design reflects proven chute practices based upon many years of experience within the industry.  Chutes may be constructed from a range of materials, having bedplates from either, Stainless Steel, Mild Steel, Wood, Plastic, Rollers or a combination of these materials. 

The chute length, total fall in height, angle of decent (or combined angles for complex chutes) and chute width are custom designed to fit within  the working area whilst being designed to convey the product in the safest manner.

Glacis are essentially wide straight chutes, in which a number of sorts can be performed to the single work surface.  These sorts are generally spread across a longer chute surface, generally from 3 metres wide to the maximum space available within the working area.  All the design variations that are available for straight chutes are also available to Glacis. 

Spiral Chutes

Spiral chutes are produced to a choice of bed profiles, which can be either Safeglide or Daifuku Logan curved profile.   Chutes may be manufactured from Stainless Steel, Mild Steel or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic).  Where Mild Steel and GRP chutes are used it is common to apply a low friction coating to the chute surface to assist the self starting properties of the chutes.  The chute radius and pitch of fall may be varied to suit the product being conveyed and the specific installation within which the chute is being installed.

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.
