Crescent Carousel


The Flat Baggage Carousel - Crescent type is used for baggage claim in the airports. It consists of a supporting steel frame and a moving surface made of plastic plates fixed by crossbars to a chain that slides along central guides. The motion system of the Flat Baggage Carousel, Crescent type, is placed in the Thrust Unit.
The Thrust unit is based on a gear-motor that runs the Friction Driven system moving forward the chain device. Plates have a crescent shape. In the curves plates turn around their central axle, keeping their edges adjacent each other.
Baggage are loaded on the carousel manually or by a conveyor line and transported along the loop. Covers confer the aesthetic aspect to the machine and assure the necessary level of safety during its operation.
