Model 787

Claim Conveyor


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

Circuit Assembly
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.


Bed Section
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.

Friction Drive
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 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”.
