Dematic Modular Conveyor System

Flexibility, adaptability, scalability

More Performance

Dematic Modular Conveyor System, or Dematic MCS, 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, palletizers, and robotics. Dematic MCS products can be provided from four assembly locations around the world (Germany, Australia, China, and the United States) for optimum supply to any system location.


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 optimized 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 vulcanized 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.


Electronic Sensing

Dematic MCS utilizes electronic sensing devices for load detection. Zone boundaries are determined with electronic sensors and reflectors. A standardized set of parts make up the assembly: sensor, reflector, protective housing, cabling and mounting components. The sensor and reflector housings offer multiple mounting angles.

Modular Design

Modular Architecture

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.


Modular Functionality

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. 


Modular Components

Users can realize the benefits of standardization 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 standardization creates a smaller inventory of parts to manage and allows greater flexibility when future reconfiguration is required.
