Baggage Storage Systems

The requirement for bag storage systems has developed significantly over recent years and this has given rise to development in automated systems to store bags within an airport baggage handling environment.

Drawing on well established and developed warehouse storage solutions where crane and rack systems are prevalent, has enabled the fast track establishment of high quality, high capability storage capabilities for bags.

At the heart of our system is the DuoSys miniload crane technology from our parent company Daifuku. Having installed in excess of 24,000 storage and retrieval machines throughout the logistics industry their experience is virtually unrivalled, as is the development which has gone into the DuoSys product. DuoSys encapsulates the many years of application experience to be the pinnacle of todays crane technology. Amongst other leading and innovative features it offers the ability for 2 cranes to work simultaneously throughout the entire length of the storage aisle. This permits a number of operational modes to be provided as required by the operational demands, but significantly also further increases bag storage density without compromising system resilience.

Bags and cranes, have typically not gone well together because of the large variety of sizes and shapes of baggage. The new Baggage Tray System (BTS) solves this problem by transporting bags in trays. It is these trays that allow baggage to be handle as a standard unit load by the cranes and thus BTS enables to full realisation of the benefits of crane based systems in baggage handling applications.

Storing bags in a crane and rack based system provides:

  • Very high bag storage density, so precious space in the airport is efficiently used.
  • Fully automated bag storage, for efficient and error free operation.
  • High throughput rates which allows bags to be stored as early bags, pre make-up buffer or peak shaving.
  • Very high resilience through elimination of single point failures allowing the store to continue to operate with only a small reduction in throughput while any failure is repaired.
  • Very low maintenance requirement compared with any other storage technology, maintenance is also simply effected with easy access to components.

These advantages are why many of the worlds leading airports are now considering this technology for their bag storage requirements

Daifuku Logan   Roots to routes


Since 1956 Daifuku Logan has continually evolved, grown and strived to always meets their employees and Hull’s community’s needs.

Where did we start?
1956 The Manufacturers Equipment Company Ltd, an outlet for the products of UK based Fenner Group of companies, realised their first expansion in 1961, swiftly followed in 1977 which saw us renamed as Fenamec. Our movement towards airport baggage handling Systems started in 1982. With the introduction of CAD, Electrical Control Systems and the provision of “turnkey” solutions Fenamec was at the forefront of British industry in making practical use of technology and most definitely gained them a place on the map.

From here the progression grew with pace. 1985 saw us become part of the US Fortune 500 company Figgie International Group, links with our sister company Logan of Louisville Kentucky, allowed us to expanded and Hull become the Headquarters with our new name Logan-Fenamec Materials Handling Systems.
 
The tragic 1988 Lockerbie Bombing totally changed the way the world would view hold baggage screening and it was Logan-Fenamec who first pioneered the technology for 100% Hold Baggage Security System.
 
Major development of the plant was actioned and started in 1992, Managing Director Ed Ferris and Operations Director Mike Jeffery introduced a state of the art Manufacturing Centre in Hull which saw Ron Osborne join as Manufacturing Manager.
 
1995, a further takeover by Suez Energy Services a French organisation, Mike Jeffery became the Managing Director and this was followed in April 2011, when Logan Teleflex group was acquired by Daifuku co Ltd, one of the world’s largest material handling specialist with a diverse range of material handling solutions.
 
Daifuku-Logan Limited (DLL) with Ron Osborne now at the helm as Managing Director have been responsible for designing and implementing over 500 baggage handling solutions, these can be found across the world as far as Vladivostok, South Africa, China and also other prestigious airports such as Heathrow, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Brussels, Moscow, Paris, Casablanca and many more.
 
With huge changes occurring throughout the years within the company, from start up to present day, we have always maintained our position at the cutting edge of developments within baggage handling solutions and security systems. During this time, whilst we have retained our firm roots in Hull we also reach out across the world as part of the Daifuku Airport Technologies group ATec, perfectly demonstrated at the recent, highly successful exhibition in Amsterdam.

For a full overview of our company the Roots to Routes booklet showcases our growth throughout the years and the importance of Hull remaining in our roots along with past and present images, training awards, apprenticeship schemes and more please visit www.daifuku-logan.co.uk/roots
