  • The best belt curve is the one you hear nothing more about after it has been installed - in other words, fit it and forget about it.

Global Excellence for Airports

With an installed base of more than one hundred thousand conveyors, we are a leading provider of modules for baggage handling systems. In the process, our secret for success is as subtle as it is simple: We listen to and hear what airport operators and integrators have to say to us. We have been learning this way for the last forty years and we use this knowledge to bring about continuous improvement in our products. The outcome: More than three hundred airports across the globe – among them the top thirty – place their trust in TRANSNORM.

Curve Conveying

Proven worldwide - Baggage transport with TRANSNORM belt curve conveyors

TRANSNORM belt curve conveyors are the result of our constant pursuit of the needs of the operators and integrators of baggage handling systems. The holistic construction concept combines the proven reliability of the TRANSNORM belt curves with the best-in-class values with respect to energy consumption, smoothness in running and maintenance-friendliness. The results are considerably reduced life cycle costs and a high level of economy.

TRANSNORM Airport Belt Curves offer the following benefits

  • Best-in-class in performance, reliability, energy consumption and maintenance-friendliness
  • Robust construction with low self-weight
  • Optimised in terms of weight, space and installation
  • Ease of integration in new and existing baggage handling systems
  • Patented belt guiding system and conical drums for maximum reliability and smoothness in running
  • Low tension conveyor belt drive across the entire width of the belt enables extremely long deployment times
  • Belt slides on highly solid laminated wooden sheets

Continuous Vertical Conveying

Two functions, one conveyor system, full tempo...

TRANSNORM helix belt curve conveyors are always deployed in baggage handling systems when in addition to the need to transport over a curve there is also a difference in height that must be overcome. A significant benefit compared to lifts or S/C elevators lies in the continuous conveyance process as well as the effective space requirement of the conveyor system in the system layout apart from the higher throughput. Cyclic feeding operation and the associated control effort is no longer necessary.

Transnorm Helix Curves offer the following benefits

  • Extremely high values of throughput
  • Less controlling effort and no advance cyclic operation
  • Patented belt guiding system and conical drums for maximum reliability and smoothness in running
  • Low tension conveyor belt drive across the entire width of the belt enables extremely long deployment times
  • Optimised in terms of weight, space and installation
  • Very low noise level

Reliable and accurate - Angled belt conveyor for baggage handling with full belt design

When it comes to the reliable and accurate connection of sorters or merger conveyor belts in baggage handling systems, angled belt conveyors from TRANSNORM are used throughout the world. By using a full-faced conveyor belt, there are no points at which suitcase buckles, locks or straps get pulled in.

Angled Belt Conveyors from TRANSNORM offer the following benefits

  • Optimal transfer of force for reliable operation with exemplary smoothness during operation
  • Specially coated pulleys for extremely low values of friction
  • Compact and robust design and construction

Timing and Merging on Sorter Lines

Brief, accurate and forceful - short track timing conveyors from TRANSNORM

While merging in sorting circuits or collecting lines of baggage handling systems, high power modules such as TRANSNORM angled belt conveyors are used. In order to fully exploit the performance of these modules, indexing conveyors are required that work reliably even in a Stop-and-Go mode of operation. You can achieve large start-up values of torque and high conveyor speeds by using drum diameters of 130 mm. The belt running on both sides of the timing conveyor ensures absolute tracking with low belt tension and the use of cylindrical deflection drums. Furthermore, the adjustment work required with conventional belt conveyors is no longer necessary. In summary, the most important attributes of this innovative product are therefore shortness, accuracy and power...

Timing Conveyors from TRANSNORM offer the following benefits

  • Accurate cyclic feed of flight baggage with high performance
  • Optimal belt synchronism even in Stop-and-Go mode of operation
  • Absolute tracking of the belt running by lateral guides
  • It can be designed (compared to the width) with very short conveyor track lengths
  • Compact construction and design with several indexing modules combined with TRANSNORM angled belt conveyors

Diverting flight baggage

The motorised belt diverter from TRANSNORM has been specially customised to meet the merging and diverting tasks of baggage handling systems at airports. With a diverting capacity of up to 1,500 units per hour, it is used wherever pieces of baggage need to be discharged from a conveyor line or have to be diverted to a conveyor line. With this compact stand-alone solution, it is necessary to have a positive fit connection to the adjacent conveyor equipment. As a result, you can dispense with the cumbersome clarification of interfaces during the integration phase.

TRANSNORM Belt Diverter offers the following benefits

  • Simple and robust construction for standard flight baggage
  • No positive fit connection to the adjacent conveyor equipment is required
  • Simple integration and no cumbersome explanation of the interfaces is necessary
  • Driving and deflection drums located inside enable a very small gap between the conveyor belt and discharge belt
  • Low noise operation while running
  • Extremely low maintenance with high idle times

Vertical Distribution/Merge

Compact and powerful – Vertical line diverters for baggage handling systems

Powerful vertical diverter units are deployed whenever special pieces of flight baggage need to be discharged from the main flow of baggage following the screening process and reinserted after they have been inspected. The TRANSNORM VertiSwitch® has been developed especially for these requirements. This completely standardised diverter unit can be used optionally either as a diverter or as a merge unit.

Rugged construction, modular design and good dynamic performance of the swivel movements are the highlights of this product. Based on the prevalent flight baggage dimensions (L=900 mm), with a switching time of < 1 second, distribution speeds of up to 2,000 pieces of baggage/hour can be achieved.

The TRANSNORM VertiSwitch® offer the following benefits

  • Compact design for minimum space requirement
  • Innovative design with minimal power consumption
  • Design with optimal weight yet robust construction with a high degree of reliability
