The inclined friction drive claim conveyor provides an endless inclined conveying surface, enabling it to serve two primary functions within the baggage handling environment:
Baggage Reclaim – Usually located in passenger areas and fully clad in stainless steel.
Flight Make-Up – Usually located within the baggage hall and supplied as an integral part of a Departures or Transfer bag handling system. The conveyor is usually finished in galvanised or painted mild steel for this application.
Model 787 Inclined Claim Conveyor
The Model 787 Claim Conveyor is designed for ease of installation and maintenance. It may be fed by multiple conveyor lines. A complete inclined claim conveyor circuit is made up of any number of straights, normal curves, or reverse curve sections.
The Model 787 Claim Conveyor has the ability to be supplied with raised sidewalls opposite feed points and kick strips around the outer periphery of the carousel circuit. An infill can also be provided in the centre of the claim conveyor regardless of the shape of the carousel circuit.

Model 787 Inclined Claim Conveyor General Description
The friction driven inclined claim conveyor is assembled into a continuous loop built up using modular units. The main components are straight beds, normal curves, reverse curves and drive units. The straight beds are a maximum of 3.0m in length, normal curves have a mean radius of 1500mm and are supplied up to a maximum angle of 45o, the reverse curves have a mean radius of 4500mm and supplied up to 30o maximum angle. The drive unit is fitted into a straight bed, usually at the end of the most heavily loaded straight section. A single drive unit has sufficient capability to drive a claim conveyor with a chain length of 50 to 75m depending on loading. When the claim conveyor installation is above 75m additional drive units are added.
The track support fabrication is manufactured from rolled hollow section and press formed steel and is utilised to support the central chain track in addition to the shrouds, wheel support angles, kick plates and adjustable supports. The track support fabrication is fitted at intervals of 1.5 metres.
Tow chain links are made of cast aluminium. Each link is provided with a take-up mechanism which is used for adjusting the length of the whole closed chain loop. A wheel with a quiet running polyurethane tyre is fitted on each chain link providing side guidance.
Slat and Slat Assembly
Synthetic rubber slats are 1200mm long and 8mm thick. A pressed steel slat carrier is mounted on each chain link at 250mm pitch and carries a urethane tyred support wheels at both top and bottom for quite, smooth operation. Rubber slats and support buffers are mounted to each carrier to provide a continuous carrying surface.
The friction drive uses a set of elastically applied pinch rollers which transfer friction force via a driven ribbed belt to the tow chain. Slat carriers fitted with rubber slats are connected to each link, thus moving all slats around the circuit.
The carousel is controlled with a frequency inverter to ensure the equipment gives a smooth start even when fully loaded.
Daifuku Logan IS deliverING the pilot baggage handling system standard 3 migration of GROUPE ADP at PARIS - Charles de Gaulle terminal 3
DAIFUKU LOGAN, Ivry (November, 2016) — Daifuku Logan Ltd, a subsidiary of Daifuku Co. Ltd Airport Technologies Group and a leading provider of airport baggage handling systems – announced today a Standard 3 Baggage Handling contract with Groupe ADP in France.
Daifuku Logan has been entrusted by Groupe ADP the migration of the baggage handling system security process from “Standard 2” to “Standard 3” at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Terminal 3.
This project includes the entire replacement of the conveying systems, the baggage security process with the integration of “Standard 3” machines and automatic sortation functions.
The first phase of the project took place in Hall A and has been operational since the beginning of April 2016. The new system has a capacity of 1,800 bags per hour with two “Standard 3” screening machines. In the second phase, Hall B is currently being upgraded and will be operational in the first quarter of 2017.
This pilot project is an unique opportunity for Groupe ADP to obtain invaluable experience for future “Standard 3” upgrades of all their baggage handling systems in Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Ron Osborne, Managing Director Daifuku Logan said: "We are very proud of Groupe ADP confidence in Daifuku to deliver their pilot sites and with great pleasure we have successfully integrated their first Standard 3 machines”.
Daifuku Logan is part of the Daifuku Airport Technologies division that has already installed more than 430 CT security screening machines.
Daifuku Logan is a subsidiary of Daifuku Co. Ltd., an industry leader in providing robust, durable, reliable, and energy efficient baggage handling systems. For over 70 years the Daifuku Group has been developing seamless innovation in automated material handling solutions.
With a full range of baggage system products, solutions and services, Daifuku Logan is one of the few companies in the world able to provide for all aspects of a baggage system solution from design to hand over and operations & maintenance.
