Check-in is one of the first direct contacts passengers make with an airport. This is why it is all the more important to serve passengers efficiently, openly, and in a friendly manner in this area of the airport. We try to look at the check-in area from many different perspectives in order to come up with the best possible solutions. Our main focus is on the perspective of the passengers, ergonomics for passengers and staff, technical feasibility, aesthetic issues and all pertinent and relevant safety matters.

Check-in is the place where baggage is registered and processed.

Two-part check-ins consist of weighing belts and the collecting belt. The baggage is weighed and labeled and then moved on via the collecting conveyor.

Three-part check-ins consist of the weighing belt, labeling belt and the collecting belt. The baggage is weighed on the weighing belt and then labeled on the labeling belt, from where the baggage is fed to the collecting belt. At the same time, the next item of baggage is moved from the weighing belt to the labeling belt.

The in-feeding process on the collecting belt is the same for 2-part and 3-part check-ins. After so-called windows are defined on the collecting belt, the baggage item is automatically fed to an available window.

To make sure that items of baggage are not fed to the collector while standing with their tall side up, baggage tilters are placed at the end of the collecting belt. By virtue of their special position and shape, they provide the best possible degree of tilting.

For better maintenance, check-in stands can also be designed as an extendible or folding unit. Check-in stands with extendible cradles make maintenance much easier as the entire unit, including the scales, is pulled out and immediately accessible from anywhere. The folding unit has the advantage of not requiring the passengers to move, should unexpected maintenance become necessary.
