Model 599

Check-in Conveyor


Check-In conveyors are the first point of interface between the passenger and the baggage handling system, they allow passengers to safely enter their baggage onto the conveying system. They also allow the check-in desk clerk to weigh and label the baggage.



Model 599 Check-In Conveyors

The Model 599 Check-in Conveyor range has been designed to meet the specific needs of airports. Our weigh, label and despatch conveyors can be configured as either one, two or three stage check-in systems, offering choice and flexibility for check-in operations. The Model 599 Check-in Conveyors are finished in stainless steel to a very high quality. As standard they are fitted with dummy end pulleys to eliminate trap points for passengers, operators, bag straps and labels. For extra security safety gates may be fitted to the weigh conveyor preventing passengers from entering the check-in areas when the desks are closed.

General Construction – Weigh, Label and Despatch Conveyors

Drive/Head Pulley

135mm diameter 0.75kw motorised drum mounted within moulded end caps. The face width of the drum is narrower than the belt, and the end caps are formed such that they act as a dummy pulley (or static shroud).

Tail Pulley

75mm diameter end pulleys are machined and fitted to 20mm diameter bright mild steel axles mounted in sealed for life precision bearings. The face width of the pulley is narrower than the belt, and plastic bushes are located at the end of the shaft to act as dummy pulleys.

Drive & Tail Snubber Pulley

The Drive Snubber Pulley is 75mm diameter, the tail pulley is 50mm diameter. The drive snubber pulley ensures that the pulley wrap on the drive drum is kept to a maximum. Both are screw adjustable for belt tracking and tensioning purposes.


Sidewalls are formed from 2.0mm thick Stainless Steel. The sidewalls are bolted to both sides of the bed section, additionally there are formed mild steel cross members which connect the two sides together underneath the bed section. This ensures good rigidity. The sidewalls can be quickly removed for maintenance or cleaning purposes.

Bed Section

Press-formed channel section from 2.5mm thick mild steel, width equal to belt width plus 20mm and 50mm deep. Stainless cladding. The front panel is manufactured from 2.5 mm thick stainless steel. The Daifuku Logan logo is fixed on to this panel. The panel can be unlatched and pivoted down to allow access under the conveyor for cleaning, and to facilitate conveyor removal. The outer sides of all conveyors in full public view will be clad with 1.6 mm polished stainless steel panels.

Tracks and Castors

All of the Check-In conveyors are mounted on castors which run in a track, the weigh conveyor tracks are fixed to the top of the weigh scale. The conveyors are retained in their operating position by a latch bolt. Access to the weigh conveyor bolt is via the hinged stainless steel plate. This allows for easy removal of the units for cleaning and maintenance purposes.

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”.
