Model 700RF

Tilt Tray
Sorter

Application

Tilt Tray Sorters are probably the most versatile of all sorting machines. Aimed at larger and irregular shaped items, they provide an inherent facility for recirculation of items which differentiates them from many other sorting technologies. Above all they provide for very high levels of throughput with a highly controlled sorting action, designed to minimise damage to items which can be associated with mechanical handling processes.

Model 700RF Tilt Tray Sorter

The Model 700RF Tilt Tray Sorter represents the most advanced sorter available today. It uses an electrical tip action controlled via a radio frequency signalling system which permits unprecedented levels of control over the items to be handled. It also enables facilities to be provided which have not been feasible with previous generations of tilt tray sorter designs, for example, tray banking on curve sections.

When this sorter is coupled with state of the art dynamic induction units, developed by Daifuku Logan, a complete, capable and comprehensive package for sortation needs is provided.

General Description

The Model 700 Powered Tilt Tray Sorter consists of a series of linked carriages powered around the sorter track by specially tuned Linear Induction Motors (LIMs).

The carriages comprise of powered tilting units which support product-carrying trays. These trays are used for the transportation of products and can be energised to tilt to both sides of the machine at any software programme discharge position.

The tipping action of the tray is such that the rotational profile remains constant throughout the product weight range, without causing launching of the lightest product.

The tipping action is generated through the control of a specialised-braked geared motor unit, removing the need for mechanical latches, cams and switch devices. This contact-less approach removes the necessity for maintenance and setting up associated with other mechanical designs. The other main benefit of this approach is that the tipping profile is not affected by the linear speed for the sorter.

When a loaded tray arrives at the required discharge position, it is remotely signalled to tip by a Radio Frequency (RF) sub system. When the tip has been completed the on board controller is instructed to straighten the tray prior to the next induction point ready to accept the product.

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
