ICM Airport Technics Leader in Self-Service Bag Drop And Baggage Handling Solutions
ICM Airport Technics is a global leader in airport baggage technology and inventor of the self-service Auto Bag Drop units used by the world’s best airport terminals.
Our range of Auto Bag Solutions addresses the mission-critical processes at airports for handling and managing passenger hold baggage. From bag tagging and drop off to screening and loading, our products and services revolve around automation of baggage processes.
Our solutions cover ‘above the wing’ passenger bag drop processes to ‘below the wing’ baggage ramp operations. Our approach is to provide uncompromised safety and security along with reliability and efficiency.
Auto bag drop
ICM’s auto bag drop (ABD) units enable passengers to check-in their baggage by themselves without having to queue at a check-in desk, enhancing the passenger check-in experience and boosting terminal operations.
It is proven for single and common-use airports in both domestic and international environments.
ICM’s range of solutions, whether a simpler retrofit unit or a fully automated machine, the goal is to give passengers a fast and simple bag drop.
ICM’s Series 7 Auto Bag Drop (ABD) units are the world’s first to integrate biometrics for face to passport validation.
Automatic baggage loading
Modern airports have an automatic baggage handling system, which transports baggage from the check-in counter to the baggage sortation belt for the flight. On the way to this point, the baggage is automatically X-Rayed, temporarily stored and sorted. However, at the supply point, the heavy manual work begins.
The baggage is generally manually placed in a flight container (ULD) or stacked on a baggage ramp cart. During this process, one worker typically lifts about 16t per shift.
The automated baggage loading cell completes these work steps using a robot. The robot’s patented “gripper” is developed to increase performance and efficiency of the loading process.
It comprises a telescopic surface with a stop. Consequently, the telescopic surface precisely matches the size of the bag.
