German technology powerhouse, Siemens Logistics has unveiled its new belt conveyor VarioBelt TilterPlus with an unparalleled tilting device for efficient transport of baggage at airports.
Offering a highly functional mechanism capable of conveying baggage straight ahead as well as to the left and the right with just one sorting device, the VarioBelt TilterPlus requires significantly less machines for a baggage handling system, which in turn means a smaller footprint.
“We support our customers with the most modern solutions for smooth business processes,” said Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Logistics. “VarioBelt TilterPlus is a groundbreaking product that makes baggage handling with belt conveyors even more flexible – for both regional airports and international hubs.”
By enabling airport operators to make use of modular expansion of their systems, Siemens’ new solution means airports can adapt their baggage handling system according to varying passenger volumes as required. In addition, VarioBelt TilterPlus offers different individual layout configurations. Connectivity solutions at 90, 45 and 0 degrees without implementing curves are possible to the connecting conveyor, which allows customers to make optimal use of their space.
And thanks to its modular structure, VarioBelt TilterPlus is easy to maintain. Components such as the drive drums, motors, and pulleys can be exchanged in a short amount of time and are compatible with the Siemens VarioBelt conveyor system. Airports that already employ this technology can use the spare parts they have on hand for VarioBelt TilterPlus.
