Standard 3
Hold Baggage Screening


Compliance with Standard 3 CT technology within baggage screening isn't just about replacing existing machines for new, it requires an holistic review of the processes and procedures which underpin performance and throughput.
The Daifuku group of companies have over 420 installations of Standard 3 machines world wide and have gained a vast amount of expertise, knowledge and experience from integrating into all types of environments.
Daifuku Logan's team of Standard 3 process engineers, system designers, simulation experts and BIM modelling professionals, combine to deliver a bespoke solution tailored and built around the requirements of the customer and system.


Concepts & Design

Daifuku Logan's dedicated Standard 3 team, uses the latest technologies in AutoCad, 3D design and simulation software to build existing systems in order to model and develop new installation for Standard 3.
The use of these technologies when combine with BIM modelling is particularly powerful in capacity constrained baggage halls and terminals where consideration needs to be given to the additional requirements of the various Standard 3 machines in regards to size, weight throughout and processing times.



The use of BIM modelling ensures that designs are "fit for purpose" and are able to be built within the building constraints. This is particularly important within existing baggage and building environments. The use of clash detection against building services, steelwork and fabrication enables the baggage design to be modified iteratively ensuring minimal on site "surprises".
We work closely with architects and design integrators to ensure that the BIM models and clash detections highlight all major problems and obstructions thus reducing unknown costs


EDS Vendors

Daifuku has integrated over 400 various EDS machines into existing and new installations, we are independent of any supplier but do maintain close relationships with many vendors enabling our experiences in integration and Operations and Maintenance to be shared back into machine development.
Using the various simulation tools available we are able to build and demonstrate baggage system design and machine capabilities virtually. Providing the customer with an up front view of how the system will look along with a real expectation of performance, throughput and in system time.


S3 Simulation

Daifuku Logan's uses advanced simulation models to build, test and performance stress the integrity and validity of it's designs.
Simulation models can be built at the very early stages of the Standard 3 process independent of any machine selection and decisions, using these software simulation tools we are able to run system throughput and assess design criteria as well as the physical effects of baggage on the system.
We can apply full physics to the models which realistically simulate the effects of the system layout and design on baggage and how this impacts on baggage orientation, stability and ultimately system performance.
We then use this information to design out unnecessary design aspects of the system which affect performance.
Daifuku Logan's expertise within Standard 3 design, build and integration is leading the way in challenging the norms and pushing the boundaries of technology and ensuring Daifuku are - "Always an Edge Ahead".



Once the Standard 3 system has been designed, simulated and approved by the customer, Daifuku Logan are able then to use Emulation tools and software to build the actual PLC code in the test lab using the above 3D models and simulations.
The PLC code is written and built around the models virtually and full end to end FAT testing is completed with the customer present in our test lab.
Any faults and issues can be easily rectified and re-tested in the lab, SAC and SCADA applications are also tested and integrated to provide a fully functioning system prior to any site installation and commissioning.
This dramatically reduces on site commissioning costs and time, providing the customer the a high level of assurance when going live especially in operational environments.

Daifuku Logan Ltd, one of the World’s leading manufacturers of automated baggage handling systems, in partnership with Logan KSEC, is pleased to announce the successful delivery of its largest ever state-of-the-art BNP specification baggage handling system for the brand new T3 Terminal at Wuhan Tianhe Airport in China.


 The baggage system compromises of 6 check-in islands, each with 20 check-in desks, 18 arrivals carousels, 6 transfer baggage lines, 4 manual coding lines, 48 EBS lanes and 8 screening lines. The screening lines have 6 automatic MV Xray machines and 4 automatic CT Xray machines with additional explosive trace detection and level 5 baggage resolution areas.


 At the heart of the system lie 4 of Daifuku Logan’s leading edge tilt tray sorters consisting of 1462 trays with 30 induction points and over 400 chutes.


Baggage identification is realised by Radio Frequency Identification (RFID ) integrated seamlessly into all systems, this coupled with the end to end data tracking is reaching identification rates far beyond what is possible with standard optical systems. Each tilt tray sorter chute is fitted with a final RFID based bag information display system which automatically reads the bag as the bag is loaded into the unit loading device (ULD).


 Critical systems, such as the tilt tray sorters, utilise the latest Hot Standby PLC’s and full redundant power and network installations to ensure the highest availability possible.

Higher level systems supplied include SAC, 3D SCADA, CCTV, maintenance management and ATR management servers.

A tote return system delivers empty totes from the baggage hall back to each of the check-in desk positions.


Construction of the 220,000m2 Terminal started in June 2013 at an estimated cost of 40 billion yuan (£4.6 billion), and project delivery included a new runway, new control tower noted to be the tallest in Asia and a transportation hub connecting the airport to the city with intercity railway and metro line.

Starting from August 31st, all flights from T1 (international, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan) and T2 (domestic) were moved to Terminal 3, which is expected to accommodate 35 million passengers annually by 2020.

Daifuku Logan Ltd’s Managing Director, Ron Osborne stated:

“We are delighted with the new system, its leading edge, on time, on target delivery is a testament to the excellent working relationships and dialogue we have with the airport, the design teams for the terminal building, right down to all the sub-contracting companies since the projects conception.

We very much look forward to working closely with the airport on any of its future BHS project requirements”.
