Whitepaper: TUBTRAX – individual carrier system
TUBTRAX is a high-speed individual carrier system (ICS). Bags loaded in carriers are transported smoothly with high capacity and faultless tracking.
The system is beneficial at every stage of the baggage handling process, from self bag drop at check in to flight make-up for departure, and from arrivals to reclaim.
TUBTRAX’s storage-efficient carriers can handle various sizes of baggage, including regular IATA-sized items, in a mixed flow. Baggage remains safely loaded at all times, while the carrier is transported on the most appropriate technology during each process.
TUBTRAX carriers can: travel seamlessly over lean-design twin belts through Standard two and three screening equipment; be stored in racks or in lanes and be combined with tilt-tray sorters for high-capacity sorting.
To cover long distances, such as inter-terminal connections, carriers can be loaded on high-speed, linear motor-driven BAGTRAX carts. These provide short in-system times and the industry’s highest baggage transport speed of 14 m/s (over 50 km/h).
