Multi-Carrier-System®

Multi-Carrier-System®

Do you want your production processes to become more flexible?

The use of the Multi-Carrier-System results in maximum machine flexibility.

Rigidly linking conventional conveyors is no longer necessary as the system provides freedom of motion with maximum dynamics.

With this configurable transport system the carriers driven by linear motors move flexibly to the individual units for example for filling, closing and labelling. The system moves freely, is precisely synchronised with the process and can be integrated into the existing intralogistics – including seamless inward and outward transfer of the carriers. The other conveyors remain unchanged.

  • Modular concept for fast changeover of the machine to different formats, other product types or seasonal requirements - up to lot size 1.
  • Integrated concept for controlling transport motions and motion control functions as well as coordinating additional machine modules

Highlights
