Items of baggage are placed on check-in systems for conveying where they are weighed and labeled/coded. The coding clearly identifies where they are during the conveying process. Check-in conveyors are often designed with a slight incline.
Technical Requirements of the Belts
The belts must be able to prevent items of baggage from rolling down again on inclined sections and when conveyors are operating in stop and go mode. The surface pattern and belt fabric must be robust due to the vast number of items of baggage placed on the belts, by trolley suitcases for instance, at high concentrated loads.
Forbo Movement Systems offers robust, double-ply polyester types with a rhomboid pattern or specially developed check-in patterns.
The size and thickness of both are designed in such a way that they guarantee to grip trolley suitcases securely.
The belt length should always be a multiple of the pattern pitch to guarantee that the splice looks neat.
