Check-In conveyors are the first point of interface between the passenger and the baggage handling system, they allow passengers to safely enter their baggage onto the conveying system. They also allow the check-in desk clerk to weigh and label the baggage.
Model 599 Check-In Conveyors
The Model 599 Check-in Conveyor range has been designed to meet the specific needs of airports. Our weigh, label and despatch conveyors can be configured as either one, two or three stage check-in systems, offering choice and flexibility for check-in operations. The Model 599 Check-in Conveyors are finished in stainless steel to a very high quality. As standard they are fitted with dummy end pulleys to eliminate trap points for passengers, operators, bag straps and labels. For extra security safety gates may be fitted to the weigh conveyor preventing passengers from entering the check-in areas when the desks are closed.

General Construction – Weigh, Label and Despatch Conveyors
135mm diameter 0.75kw motorised drum mounted within moulded end caps. The face width of the drum is narrower than the belt, and the end caps are formed such that they act as a dummy pulley (or static shroud).
75mm diameter end pulleys are machined and fitted to 20mm diameter bright mild steel axles mounted in sealed for life precision bearings. The face width of the pulley is narrower than the belt, and plastic bushes are located at the end of the shaft to act as dummy pulleys.
Drive & Tail Snubber Pulley
The Drive Snubber Pulley is 75mm diameter, the tail pulley is 50mm diameter. The drive snubber pulley ensures that the pulley wrap on the drive drum is kept to a maximum. Both are screw adjustable for belt tracking and tensioning purposes.
Sidewalls are formed from 2.0mm thick Stainless Steel. The sidewalls are bolted to both sides of the bed section, additionally there are formed mild steel cross members which connect the two sides together underneath the bed section. This ensures good rigidity. The sidewalls can be quickly removed for maintenance or cleaning purposes.
Press-formed channel section from 2.5mm thick mild steel, width equal to belt width plus 20mm and 50mm deep. Stainless cladding. The front panel is manufactured from 2.5 mm thick stainless steel. The Daifuku Logan logo is fixed on to this panel. The panel can be unlatched and pivoted down to allow access under the conveyor for cleaning, and to facilitate conveyor removal. The outer sides of all conveyors in full public view will be clad with 1.6 mm polished stainless steel panels.
Tracks and Castors
All of the Check-In conveyors are mounted on castors which run in a track, the weigh conveyor tracks are fixed to the top of the weigh scale. The conveyors are retained in their operating position by a latch bolt. Access to the weigh conveyor bolt is via the hinged stainless steel plate. This allows for easy removal of the units for cleaning and maintenance purposes.

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.
