Innovated CBRA Rooms
The Daifuku revolutionary solution for CBRA replaces traditional conveyors and static search tables with Mobile Inspection Tables (MIT). Bags are automatically loaded onto an MIT and delivered to the TSO. The TSO searches the bag directly on top of the MIT and automatically delivers the bag back to the appropriate conveyor. The stainless steel MIT table top matches the dimensions of traditional search tables and meets all PGDS 5.0 requirements.
The foundation for the MIT is not new technology. This revolutionary concept builds on our proven model 100ST Automatic Guided Cart (AGC). Webb’s AGC’s have been in production for nearly 16 years with an install base of over 4,000 carts in demanding manufacturing environments. They have demonstrated extreme reliability in manufacturing where maximum uptime is required, much like a baggage handling system.
The MIT allows for extreme flexibility in CBRA room layout designs that can be easily expanded or modified.
Mobile Inspection Tables additional benefits over tray or table based CBRA’s, include:
- Room accessibility
- Noise reduction
- Energy savings
- Space utilization
Baggage Check-in Conveyor
Our conveyors are designed to increase efficiency, minimize maintenance and improve overall service at ticket counters. An attractive stainless steel shroud covers all pinch points, enhancing both safety and appearance. The low-profile design is just 12" high to minimize the lifting of heavy bags. And our modular design allows for additional scale load cells. Grease-packed reducers nearly eliminate the leakage and maintenance that is associated with conventional oil-filled, fixed-speed drive assemblies.
Our check-in conveyors include three major components: labeling, dispatch and scale conveyors. Labeling conveyors have adjustable belt speeds to accommodate a wide range of transfer requirements, with seamless monofilament belts that require little or no maintenance. Dispatch conveyors employ Sure-Grip Belts that efficiently dispatches all types of baggage, including those with wheels. The Cascade Transfer reliably transfers baggage and helps provide smooth transitions between conveyors. Scale conveyors incorporate a poly-chain drive, which requires no regular maintenance once it is set. Integral photocells provide sensing for bag positioning and controlled release. Since the assembly is wheel-mounted, the units roll out for easy housekeeping and maintenance.
In-line Baggage Screening Conveyor
Daifuku North America are true experts in the design, manufacturing and installation of Explosives Detection System (EDS) conveyors. With nearly 20 years of experience in providing baggage handling systems, we are an attractive resource for airports worldwide looking to install new in-line baggage screening systems or upgrade their existing systems.
Our in-line baggage screening systems combined with our advanced WebbView controls to ensure that cleared bags are sent to the airline make-up area and suspect bags are sent for further inspection. And, our systems comply with requirements mandated by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA).
We install systems in phases to minimize disruption to airport operations. Once installed, the new systems automate the screening process allowing security personnel to check passenger baggage more efficiently.
Baggage Tray System
Baggage Tray SystemTM (BTS) provides efficient and secure transportation and sortation of passenger bags from check-in counters to baggage make-up areas.Unlike conventional systems in North America where bags are placed directly on conveyor belts, BTS provides precise handling by transporting bags in individual trays. The trays are then tracked with the effective reading of tray ID tags, minimizing lost bags. BTS is one of the world’s fastest conveyors with a maximum speed of more than 20 miles per hour.
In addition the system has a high processing capability and can be integrated with an automated storage system to provide temporary baggage staging for passengers who check in early or have extended layovers at large airports.
Destination Coded Vehicle
Destination Coded Vehicles (DCVs) are manufactured by Logan Teleflex to move bags at very high speeds of more than 20 miles per hour and at inclines/declines of up to 15 degrees. The DCV system is a flexible and affordable solution for airports around the world.
Bags are loaded onto DCVs via conveyors, which link the sorter outfeeds to the DCV loading point. The DCVs then deliver bags to the appropriate make-up position by using on-board intelligence, which is a major feature of Logan’s Telebag DCV system. Each vehicle is in constant contact with the centralized control system through its entire journey via an innovative radio frequency communication system. Each DCV uses a linear motor drive that significantly reduces maintenance. Energy is only used when a bag needs to be transferred to conserve power.
Vertical Sortation Unit (Vsort)
Vsort is one of the fastest vertical sort/merge baggage transfers in the industry, with the ability to vertically transfer bags at a rate of up to 40 bags per minute. Baggage can be sorted up or down from one conveyor to two transport conveyors or merged up or down from two transport lines to one transport line. Local controllers determine the destination of each bag based on tracking data and the position of the load on the conveyor.
Tilt Tray Sorters
Tilt Tray Sorter system sorts baggage of various shapes and sizes. Our tilt tray sorters provide very high levels of throughput with an extremely controlled sorting action that minimizes damage. With minimal maintenance downtime, the system simplifies the maintenance schedule.
Logan Teleflex designed its latest tilt tray sorter based on 30 years of experience of providing the performance and flexibility demanded by modern airports. Our tilt tray sorters are configurable and effectively use Radio Frequency (RF) technology for comprehensive communication between the carriage and external system.
Horizontal Merge Conveyor
Daifuku North America’s horizontal 45-degree merge conveyors are designed to queue baggage within a system, precisely adding bags from one conveyor line to another at high rates of speed. The units are engineered to provide efficient and accurate merging of various baggage sizes and can cycle up to 60 bags per minute.Merges are typically used in a standard baggage system and can be integrated with other queue type conveyors, power turns, or standard horizontal conveyors.
Flat Plate Baggage Carousel
Daifuku North America baggage carousels are designed for continuous, quiet operation, with minimal maintenance, and incorporate the features and reliability that the baggage industry demands.With the flat plate carousel, all pallets are stress relieved to ensure a flat surface. The flat surface is coated with a tough polyurethane coating and is supported by high density polymer wheels to provide maximum durability and minimal maintenance.
Incline Plate Baggage Carousel
Daifuku North America’s incline plate baggage carousel, otherwise known as sloped plate, is the perfect combination of eye-catching design and innovative engineering. It features guards and trim pieces made of stainless steel with top cover trim pieces that can be customized to match your facility’s interior.The incline plate carousel includes high-density polymer wheels, which provide outstanding durability and quiet operation. Also, each carousel can be equipped with audio and visual signals, emergency E-stop buttons, and operator-friendly control panels.
