Baggage Handling Systems at MIA
Zyscovich provided Miami International Airport full-time on-site management to oversee the design and installation of the Gate Delivery Baggage System for the North Terminal Development Program at Miami International Airport. The complex system is comprised of more than nine miles of an installed conveyor belt. The inbound system services both domestic and international operations and consists of standard and odd-size conveyors, ten sloped plate international claim devices, seven flat plate domestic claim devices, and odd-sized slides to accommodate oversized baggage. The outbound system consists of takeaway belts at the ticket counters, curbside inputs, odd-size conveyors, recheck accommodations, security screening matrices, manual encoding, a primary sortation matrix, high-speed mainlines, sort piers, and make-up devices spread throughout the facility, adjacent to the aircraft gates.
