Roller and belt conveyors, curves and junctions, diverts and merges, accumulation conveyors
Each day, Dematic conveyors transport millions of cartons, totes, and pallets in warehouses, DCs and factories throughout the world. Dematic continues to lead the way in conveyor technology with the broadest range of solutions and a reputation for delivering cost-effective systems that give years of reliable service in large or small applications.
Benefits of Conveyors:
- Lower handling costs for repetitive tasks
- High performance and quality
- Integrated material flow controls
- Efficiently moving products between processes
- Accumulation without line pressure
- Merging and diverting for balanced workload
- Latest controls technology
The Dematic Modular Conveyor System
The Dematic Modular Conveyor System is a totally integrated package conveyor technology. Whether you are handling cases, totes, trays, poly bags, or parcel envelopes, Dematic MCS offers a complete range of modules to create a highly efficient material flow configuration. Dematic MCS is often integrated with other devices such as scanners, sorters, label print and apply devices, case sealers, in-line weigh scales, palletisers, and robotics.
A Complete Family of Modules
Dematic MCS uses a universal side frame for all modules. This design feature allows for easier re-configuration as your operation changes. Dematic MCS is made up of over 30 standard conveyor models that allow you to configure the most optimised conveyor network for your application. The conveyor types available to build your system include transportation, accumulation, curves, inclines/declines, right angle transfers, steerable wheel sorters, and sorter induction.
More Drive Options
Dematic MCS is configured using AC drive motors, DC low voltage motor driven rollers, or a combination of both. With this dual offering, the most appropriate drive system can be applied to your conveyor system layout. For example, with long runs of conveyor, it is most cost effective to use one AC motor instead of multiple motor driven rollers. Or, a right angle transfer module can be inserted into a single length of AC driven accumulation conveyor by “snubbing down” the narrow Kevlar® drive belt, omitting the need for an AC drive motor on either side of the transfer.
Quiet Rollers & Belted Sections
Dematic MCS is offered with quiet operating rollers and belted conveying surfaces. Rollers feature double spring action, plastic coated axles, and precision, “sealed for life” bearings. High strength, one piece vulcanised belting is used in zone segments to allow precise carton control or for applications that accommodate light weight or poly bagged items. The segmented belt conveyor, driven by motor driven rollers, features automatic tracking and tensioning.
Dematic MCS utilises electronic sensing devices for load detection. Zone boundaries are determined with electronic sensors and reflectors. A standardised set of parts make up the assembly: sensor, reflector, protective housing, cabling and mounting components. The sensor and reflector housings offer multiple mounting angles.
Dematic Modular Conveyor System
Dematic Modular Conveyor System is a totally integrated package conveyor technology. Whether you are handling cases, totes, trays, poly bags, or parcel envelopes, MCS offers a complete range of modules to create a highly efficient material flow configuration.
We designed MCS from the ground up to increase operational flexibility. As business changes, users can make changes to their conveyor system and not have to start over with an all new conveyor network. To accommodate change, MCS conveyor uses a universal side channel as the backbone for all the conveyor models. So, MCS gives you the ability to “drop in” new conveyor modules, re-configure the modules, or add new modules. MCS also uses common components throughout, which simplifies maintenance support and reduces your spare parts inventory.
Standard control modules, connected using CAN Bus, are used to operate the conveyor network. Motor driven rollers operate using standard motor controllers; parameters such as conveyor speed, accumulation mode, and sleep mode are adjustable. These parameters and others can be adjusted using local or central controls.
MCS gives you the ability to change the function of a conveyor module without having to change out entire conveyor sections. For example, a section of roller conveyor can be converted to belt surface conveyor. Transportation conveyor can be changed to accumulation or visa-versa. A right angle transfer can be inserted into a section of accumulation conveyor. These types of modifications can be made without removing and replacing sections of conveyor. Instead, by using many of the existing components and using the same side channel foundation, new system functionality is created faster and at a lower cost.
Users can realise the benefits of standardisation and common conveyor components. The same rollers, motor driven rollers, segmented belts, side frames, electronic sensors, motor controls, zone control logic assemblies, drive belts, etc. are used throughout all the modules. This standardisation creates a smaller inventory of parts to manage and allows greater flexibility when future reconfiguration is required.
