Baggage & Materials Handling

Baggage & Materials Handling

Fast Automation has performed over 120 baggage and materials handling projects. This ranges from handling micro drops of Sheath fluid-Lyo solution to large turntable designs to handle the worlds biggest 700 ton truck.

Fast Automation has experience with the following conveyor types and uses:

  • Belt
  • Roller
  • Chain
  • Bucket
  • Plastic Mesh
  • Modular Plastic
  • Low friction
  • Slat
  • Magnetic

Fast automation has experience with materials handling in the following Industries;

Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverages, Packaging, General Manufacturing, Waste recycling, Timber, Baggage Systems, Distribution Centres and Laundry processing plants.

In addition to conveyors Fast Automation have performed a number of other projects including Airveyors, Vibratory feeders, Pick and place systems, Turntables, Lifts, Gravity Rail Systems and in particular AMR’s Autonomous Mobile Robots.

Baggage Systems:

Fast Automation have performed several airport Automation projects which includes baggage handling systems as well as other automation projects. Inside Airports Fast Automation have worked on large materials handling projects other than conveyor systems including ASRS systems.

General Conveyors:

Invariably Automation systems have conveyor systems involved in them for example robot cells often need conveyors into and out of them. Inspection systems often have a conveyor line to perform the inspection on and often a reject line. Production lines are often based on a conveyor line where the product is produced on the line or parts are sent to the production cells through the line.

Rail Systems:

Fast Automation have worked on several rail systems these are very common in the laundry industry where product is raised to a rail system which uses the stored energy (from raising) to guide the product to where is needs to go using gravity along a rail and points system.

Turntables:

Fast Automation have implemented a number of systems using turntables to achieve efficient automation of processes. For instance, using a servo driven turntable or stepper motor driven system or an AC VFD driven system to achieve various positioning of turntable system.

Vibratory Feeding Systems:

Fast Automation have implemented several Vibratory feed systems to sort and feed products to robots. This remarkable technology is surprisingly cost effective and extremely reliable.

Pick and Place Systems:

Fast Automation have implemented a number of cartesian type robot systems to effect Pick and Place solutions. The explosion of 3D printing and other technologies has made this technology very affordable and simple to integrate.

AMR’s

Fast Automation have deployed several AMR solutions and have patent applications for bespoke technologies developed for AMR’s. One such device is an AMR Lifter which effectively gives AMR’s the 3rd Dimension with a Robust lifting device which is mounted on the AMR.


Fast Automation have performed over 1400 projects and have a perfect record of never having failed a project. Please contact us with your application and we’d be delighted to help!
