Jervis B Webb Awarded Dallas Contract

The Jervis B Webb materials handling company, a subsidiary of Daifuku Co Ltd, and has announced a contract worth approximately $16 million with Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) to install a new automated in-line baggage handling system.
The facility will automate the entire baggage screening process in DFW’s Terminal A by relocating the existing baggage screening systems from the ticket lobby to areas in the lower level of the existing terminal building.  The new system includes seven Explosive Detection System (EDS) machines, two new transfer lines and an upgrade to the existing baggage handling controls system.
The project calls for a phased demolition of existing equipment and the use of temporary tie-in conveyors, allowing the airport to maintain operations during implementation of the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2010.
