The first baggage carousel was invented by a french company named TELEFLEX after a request from ADP (Aéroport De Paris) to develop a solution to deliver baggage at the arrival passengers, it was at the end of the 50' and especially for Orly Airport. TELFLEX was in this period specialized in ceiling chain conveyors for divers industry and had this idea to return this chain conveyor and to put it on the floor with a structure around to support slats. From this idea they developed 2 types: flat and inclined slats. Today is difficult to don't find an airport without a baggage carousel.
