Flat Plates for Baggage Carousels

Discover How Our Composite Flat Plate Saved Over $600,000 in Replacement Costs

ebook_Flat-Plates-for-Baggage-Carousels.pngWhen you’re in an airport, one of your biggest concerns is making sure your luggage arrived safely from your initial destination to your final destination, but how often do you think about the actual machine responsible for bringing your bags to you? An airline client of Globe Composite had a 268-foot long, 20 year-old flat baggage carousel nearing the end of its life expectancy.

The baggage carousel not only made lots of noise and showed poor physical appearance, but it required constant maintenance totaling up to $60,000 in maintenance costs per year. When the original equipment manufacturer provided only costly solutions, Globe Composite designed, produced, and manufactured a single piece, molded composite flat-plate made from our patented Brandonite® 1500-75D.
