Controls for all aspects of baggage handling systems are provided through our in house specialists.
Control systems are usually based on Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), we have experience in using the worlds leading manufacturers of PLCs and are therefore likely to be able to complement our clients chosen automation approach.
This experience extends to various standards of networking to allow large mutli-controller schemes to be built as well as small standalone schemes.
Over many years of providing baggage handling systems we have extensive refined libraries of software, covering almost all aspects of baggage handling control, including innovative leading edge control techniques. This allows us to implement control schemes cost effectively with low risk.
Emulation, the use of computers to simulate the baggage handling system to allow the actual PLC code to be tested, is used to allow thorough testing of software before going to site. This significantly reduces the time required on site to commission a system, as well as reducing the risk of undetected software issues, the result being a shorter, smoother transition into operation and minimised disruption to operations during these stages of the project. Emulation, also allows customers to witness tests before moving to site, with the very visual nature of Emulation often customers are able to perfect their own vision of their operation and any changes made efficiently again before moving to site.
It is also now commonplace to provide computers for operational and maintenance diagnostics purposes to allow the system to be operated efficiently. Many of our previous projects have incorporated such systems as part of our control system.
Daifuku Logan IS deliverING the pilot baggage handling system standard 3 migration of GROUPE ADP at PARIS - Charles de Gaulle terminal 3
DAIFUKU LOGAN, Ivry (November, 2016) — Daifuku Logan Ltd, a subsidiary of Daifuku Co. Ltd Airport Technologies Group and a leading provider of airport baggage handling systems – announced today a Standard 3 Baggage Handling contract with Groupe ADP in France.
Daifuku Logan has been entrusted by Groupe ADP the migration of the baggage handling system security process from “Standard 2” to “Standard 3” at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Terminal 3.
This project includes the entire replacement of the conveying systems, the baggage security process with the integration of “Standard 3” machines and automatic sortation functions.
The first phase of the project took place in Hall A and has been operational since the beginning of April 2016. The new system has a capacity of 1,800 bags per hour with two “Standard 3” screening machines. In the second phase, Hall B is currently being upgraded and will be operational in the first quarter of 2017.
This pilot project is an unique opportunity for Groupe ADP to obtain invaluable experience for future “Standard 3” upgrades of all their baggage handling systems in Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Ron Osborne, Managing Director Daifuku Logan said: "We are very proud of Groupe ADP confidence in Daifuku to deliver their pilot sites and with great pleasure we have successfully integrated their first Standard 3 machines”.
Daifuku Logan is part of the Daifuku Airport Technologies division that has already installed more than 430 CT security screening machines.
Daifuku Logan is a subsidiary of Daifuku Co. Ltd., an industry leader in providing robust, durable, reliable, and energy efficient baggage handling systems. For over 70 years the Daifuku Group has been developing seamless innovation in automated material handling solutions.
