Airport operator Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) in India has started the installation of an Integrated Trolley System (ICS) at Terminal 1 of the airport.
This baggage handling solution would have more capacity and speed.
In a statement, DIAL said, âThe ICS compatible with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) guarantees error-free sorting of baggage.
This new high-tech solution is capable of processing up to 6,000 bags per hour and will operate at a speed of 2.1 m per second.
The terminal’s current conveyor system has the capacity to operate at a speed of 0.5m per second.
During the transport procedure, from the check-in islands to the baggage preparation area, each bag will remain completely within the limits of its transport tray (cart).
This will minimize the risk of baggage loss and damage, as well as disruption of the solution caused by a strap or other baggage related issues.
