Baggage Delivery Chutes

Application

Straight chutes, curved chutes and glacis are used throughout baggage handling systems to perform a multitude of functions.  These include:

  • Sortation chute fed from Tilt Tray or similar sorting device.

  • Late ‘bag drop’ at boarding gate.

  • Temporary storage device.

  • Vertical downward transportation of bags between floor levels.

Chutes & Glacis

Straight Chutes: Daifuku Logan straight chutes are designed to handle a wide range of product and convey them in a controlled manner whist causing the minimum disruption to baggage flow. 

Glacis: Daifuku Logan glacis are similar in design to our straight chutes but are capable of giving an optimum amount of storage area combined with the most effective use of floor space.

Spiral Chutes: Daifuku Logan spiral chutes are designed with the same principals in mind as straight chutes but have the added advantages of being able to accept multiple inputs into the same chute within a limited floor space. They have also been designed and profiled to allow product to ‘self start’ from any position along the chute

Specialised Chutes: Daifuku Logan also offer a range of specialised chutes, designed to perform specific tasks or functions within baggage handling systems. Such examples include ‘Petty Wheel’ transition chutes, gated chutes, dual output chutes, etc.

Features

Application Benefits

General

Profiled Entry / Exit Sections

Allows chutes to be fed by or to feed most types of conveyor or sorting device

High Storage Capacity

Chutes or Glacis can eliminate the need for Early Bag storage lanes within a BHS

Specialised Coatings or Materials

Controls the flow of products down the chute, even with differing product finishes

Space Saving Abilities

Chutes or glacis usually present an effective solution were other products will be too complex or will not fit.

Low Maintenance

No moving parts removes the need for sustained maintenance

Bespoke Designs

Chutes and Glacis are designed to suit individual products and customer requirements

Straight Chutes & Glacis

Compact Chute Spacing

Optimum number of destination chutes within limited floor space

Variable Angle of Decent

High decent rate with smooth and controlled run-out

Spiral Chutes

Profiled Bed Plate

Controls speed and flow of product down the chute

Multiple Inputs

Allows two tiers (or more) of sortation devices

Self Start

Product stopped on the chute, from accumulation, will start decent by gravity alone

Chutes & Glacis
General Description

Straight Chutes & Glacis

Straight Chutes are custom designed to suit the product and application.  However, the design reflects proven chute practices based upon many years of experience within the industry.  Chutes may be constructed from a range of materials, having bedplates from either, Stainless Steel, Mild Steel, Wood, Plastic, Rollers or a combination of these materials. 

The chute length, total fall in height, angle of decent (or combined angles for complex chutes) and chute width are custom designed to fit within  the working area whilst being designed to convey the product in the safest manner.

Glacis are essentially wide straight chutes, in which a number of sorts can be performed to the single work surface.  These sorts are generally spread across a longer chute surface, generally from 3 metres wide to the maximum space available within the working area.  All the design variations that are available for straight chutes are also available to Glacis. 

Spiral Chutes

Spiral chutes are produced to a choice of bed profiles, which can be either Safeglide or Daifuku Logan curved profile.   Chutes may be manufactured from Stainless Steel, Mild Steel or GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic).  Where Mild Steel and GRP chutes are used it is common to apply a low friction coating to the chute surface to assist the self starting properties of the chutes.  The chute radius and pitch of fall may be varied to suit the product being conveyed and the specific installation within which the chute is being installed.

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”.
