Series III
Conveyor

Application

The Daifuku Logan Ltd Conveyor is simple and robust by design and is used widely within Baggage Handling, Screening and Sorting systems. Applications include:

  • Transportation conveyor.

  • Buffer accumulation of baggage.

  • Baggage separation or singulation.

  • Junction Control.

  • Manual coding.

  • Automatic code / tag reading.

  • Synchronisation for sorter induction.

Although the conveyor has been designed specifically with the handling of airport baggage in mind, it is also well suited to the handling of other products, such as parcel handling, mail order, unit loads, etc.

Daifuku Logan Ltd Conveyor
The Daifuku Logan Ltd Conveyor is of a modular design enabling conveyors to be supplied in a variety of lengths and incline / decline angles. It is sufficiently flexible to accommodate variations in sidewall height and belt type, available in two belt widths.

Model 571 Belt Conveyor is designed to provide an effective solution to the requirements of a modern airport baggage handling application.

General Description

Conveyor Construction
The Conveyor modules are constructed from fabricated, press formed, 2.5mm painted mild steel, galvanised or stainless steel depending upon application. They comprise of a formed bedplate bolted between two flanged side frames. The bedplate is reinforced by stiffeners across the width of the conveyor. The modules are mounted on appropriate supports to provide a rigid structure. Conveyor modules are either, dispatched fully assembled or in flat pack form, dependent on type or requirements from our works.

Drive Configurations
The drive is imparted to the conveyor drive pulley by a direct shaft mounted geared motor. As an alternative for queue conveyors, a helical geared motor can be mounted on the underside of the conveyor, with a final drive to the head pulley via a heavy duty timing belt. In this case, the drive components are totally enclosed within a sheet steel guard.
The geared motor can be supplied with an integral brake dependent on the system requirement, for rapid stop/start applications the brake is separately and directly excited.

Pulleys
The head, tail and drive pulleys are of a fully fabricated construction for concentricity. All pulleys are mounted between externally mounted bearings, which can be suitably adjusted to align the pulley and provide easy access for routine maintenance. Snubber Rollers with less than 45o of belt wrap are fitted with internal "sealed for life" bearings.

 

Standard drive arrangement:

Shaftmount head drive arrangement

Alternative drive arrangements:

Shaftmount bevel centre drive

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
