Model 656A

Fast Acting Plough

The Model 656A Fast Acting Belt Plough has been designed to handle and sort a wide range of products, with minimum impact to the bag during the plough divert operation. The unit has been designed to be used in conjunction with the Daifuku Logan range of Model 571 Belt and Queue Conveyors and with Model 688 Horizontal Claim Conveyors.

The Model 656A Belt Plough is of modular design enabling the unit to be supplied to suit the customer’s specific needs. These include variations in conveyor width, mounting method and various types of outfeed e.g. sort chute, gravity roller, petty wheel chute, powered belt conveyor etc.

General Construction

The motorised belt plough can be an independently floor mounted unit adjacent to the line conveyor for maximum stability. Alternatively it can be fixed direct to the conveyor frame.

The arm of the plough is of steel box section construction with a slider bed surface over which the plough belt runs. The diverter belt runs between vertically orientated drive and end pulleys. Belt tensioning is achieved by adjusting the end pulley.


TYPICAL ISOMETRIC VIEW OF
FAST ACTING BELT PLOUGH

The drive and end pulleys are fitted with grease packed precision bearings. The drive pulley is mounted on an extended drive shaft, which is driven by a geared motor, through a V belt drive arrangement.

The drive for the diverting motion is an integral geared motor mounted to the underside of the support frame. The motor is a 0.75 kW T.E.F.C., 1440 rpm. In certain applications the divert action may be controlled through AC Inverter.

A machined drive flange is fixed to the output shaft of the gearbox, which in turn is connected through a link bar mechanism to the main pivoting shaft of the plough arm. In this way the rotary action of the drive gearbox is transferred into the linear motion of the plough arm. The drive flange completes 360° of travel for one full plough cycle.

A proximity type electrical sensor will detect when the plough arm has reached the out position. When diverting multiple bags, this will be used to stop the plough in the ‘out’ position. A second sensor will also indicate when the arm has returned to the ‘home’ position, causing the arm to stop.

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
