Series III


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.

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.

Shaftmount head drive arrangement

Alternative drive arrangements:

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."
