Multi-Carrier-System MCS® - flexibility in the packaging industry
The cosmetics manufacturer Dr. Kurt Wolff GmbH & Co. KG uses the MCS – the innovative transport solution from Festo and Siemens – in the plant of OPTIMA Consumer GmbH to increase efficiency in the filling and packaging process for cosmetic products.
While previously the rule was “1 product = 1 machine”, nowadays machines can be easily and quickly converted at the push of a button using software. The new system is currently in control of five different products and is constantly learning new ones.
This new flexibility enables even small quantities to be produced with a high level of productivity, while at the same time it drastically reduces setup times.
