Model 599

Check-in Conveyor


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

Drive/Head Pulley

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).

Tail Pulley

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.

Bed Section

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.

A Hull-headquartered manufacturer of airport baggage handling systems has more than doubled sales and slashed losses after making "substantive improvements" during the year.

Part of the Daifuku Group, Daifuku Logan is based on the city's Sutton Road and employs a workforce of about 110.

It has installed more than 400 airport baggage-related systems worldwide over the past 50 years.

For the year to 31 December 2016, the company reported turnover of £30.5m compared to £11.8m in the previous 12 months.

Pre-tax losses were also slashed from £6.16m to £620,000.

In a strategic report accompanying the results, the company said 2016 trading "again saw substantive improvements".

"Overall trading volumes were up," it added. "Profitability at gross margin level recovered, pushing DLL into an operating for the full trading year 2016.

"Aviation industry sector key indicators again showed strong and sustained growth conditions in key business markets, resulting in increased capital expenditure on infrastructure and specifically baggage system investment. Planned investment in new screening technology has now taken hold with many European wider and global airports, resulting in contract awards and a strong order pipeline."

Daifuku said the key risks it faced during the year revolved around political and economic uncertainty, including the "unknown consequences" of Brexit.

However, it added that there are investment opportunities in a number of European countries, while it is also enjoying success in Africa. Growth in China has slowed, although Daifuku stressed that it is still "well positioned" to take advantage of opportunities as they emerge.

"Supporting each business stream is a set of goals, objectives and improvement targets," concluded Daifuku. "Meeting the plan is paramount in 2017 and onwards."
