Airport Baggage Handling

Airport Baggage Handling Solutions

Image-based barcode readers optimize operations

Cognex’s Airport Baggage Handling solutions use the power of image-based barcode readers to improve the speed and accuracy of luggage processing. Regardless of the position or orientation of the bag on the belt, Cognex barcode readers can locate and decode any barcode. Fewer unread codes means fewer bags miss their flights, which increases total baggage handling system efficiency, reduces manual encode operations, and improves customer satisfaction.

Airport Baggage Handling Application Segments

automatic bag tag reading

Automated Bag Tag Reading

Improve the speed and reliability of your operations

Bags travel long distances through airports and between planes. Even with the best bag hygiene, tags naturally suffer increasing damage and degradation. Failure to read a tag sends that bag through a manual encode process, requiring additional time, manpower and conveying equipment, which can result in lost luggage.

Baggage Tracking and Security

Ensure quality baggage handling and delivery

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Resolution 753 requires all member airlines to demonstrate the acquisition and delivery of baggage at three points of the baggage journey: load, transfer and arrivals. Each time the bag is handled and loaded, the quality and readability of the tag is compromised due to smearing, scratching, wrinkling or weather conditions.
