  • Low maintenance and easy to operate


Rapid and reliable airport luggage identification – guaranteed.

With the ALIS (Airport Luggage Identification System) track and trace system, luggage can be clearly identified as it is transported quickly and reliably through the airport, meaning you can rest assured of it reaching the right sorting zone. Designed like a reading interval gate, SICK has developed ALIS specifically with luggage handling services in mind. The system is extremely reliable when it comes to reading luggage information on IATA bar codes and RFID tagged labels. With ALIS, SICK has created a modular system which can be specially adapted to suit the various requirements of airport luggage identification and handling processes, whether this involves sensors, other electronic components, visualization software, or even the commissioning process.
