The new and innovative Multi-Carrier System MCS® brings true flexibility to the production department. It can be easily integrated into existing intralogistics and permits highly modular transport solutions for economical production from a lot quantity of 1 right on up to mass production.
React quickly to changing market requirements for new, individually manufactured products, keep production efficient, and assure optimized machine utilization and reduce lead-times while maintaining maximum flexibility. All of this is only possible if you can modify your production processes quickly without excessive effort. Festo’s Multi-Carrier System MCS® makes it possible. The innovative transport system can be quickly and easily adapted to different formats, sizes and types of products during operation. This assures optimized machine utilization because changeovers are extremely fast with this transport solution.
Advanced engineering tools and modular hardware, together with our individualized consultation and comprehensive know-how, ensure high levels of flexibility during the engineering process along with, simplicity for innovative and highly economical solutions.
Flexibility in industrial packaging
Watch the video: series production as of a lot size of 1, high levels of flexibility in production with shortest possible setup times, and 50% time-savings in engineering
And some text afterwards.
Continuous production of several different filling quantities and formats on a single line
The entire production process in the filling and packaging machine is laid out so flexibly that homogenous, mixed or highly individualized products can be manufactured with industrial mass production equipment all the way down to a lot size of 1.
Format changeovers via software for continuous processing of different packaging formats on a single line
The MCS® permits format changeovers via software by simply pressing a button for continuous processing of different packaging formats on a single line.
Various sizes, the 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®.
