The new and innovative Multi-Carrier-System MCS® brings real flexibility to the production department. It can be easily integrated into existing intralogistics and facilitates extremely modular transport solutions for economical production, from batches of 1 to large-scale production.
React quickly to changing market requirements for new, individually manufactured products, keep production efficient, ensure optimised machine utilisation and reduce delivery times while maintaining maximum flexibility. All this is only possible if you can modify your production processes quickly without much effort. The Multi-Carrier-System MCS® from Festo allows you to do precisely that. The innovative transport system can be quickly and easily adapted to different formats, sizes and types of products during operation. This ensures optimised machine utilisation because changeovers are extremely fast with this transport solution.
What can the Multi-Carrier-System do?
The innovative Multi-Carrier-System from Festo and Siemens can be integrated into various transfer systems and creates new possibilities in, for example, assembly technology or battery production.

Greater freedom thanks to flexible transport
Modern production processes often require the replacement of the rigid linking associated with conventional transfer systems. You can make your production processes more flexible with our Multi-Carrier-System. It provides the necessary freedom within the machine, while giving you a competitive edge in the market.
- Simple and, above all, fast retooling and changeovers for changing requirements and formats
- Can be combined with existing, conventional transfer systems and conveyor technology
- Standardised for polymer chain and double belt conveyors supplied by renowned manufacturers
- Entirely free inward and outward transfer of carriers and workpieces
- Highly dynamic operation and high speed combined with large carrier payload
- Carries can be freely selected, and individually accelerated, moved and grouped
- Scalable motion control system for MCS® and other machine modules
Format selection via software by simply pressing a button
For continuously processing different packaging formats on a single line.
The various sizes, number of cartons and different product groupings are set up directly on the MCS® using the freely positionable carriers. The products to be packaged are also flexibly transported to the top loader or side loader via the MCS®.
The MCS® Guide - the brochure for greater flexibility and greater productivity
Learn all about the MCS® technology, possible section layouts and special, predefined MCS® configurations, and discover many sample applications.
We show you clearly how you can make your machines more flexible, while also reducing process times and, last but not least, significantly increase the overall productivity of the system. The brochure also provides valuable information on how you can maintain and even boost your competitiveness through intelligent use of services and software tools, easy engineering processes and efficient implementation, from system and process design to machine or system operation.
