Dematic’s
new fully integrated package conveyor system is ideal for handling a range of cases, totes, trays, or parcels in high throughput distribution or manufacturing facilities or where handling requirements are repetitive.

The Modular Conveyor System (MCS) offers a complete range of modules to provide highly efficient material flow in new or existing facilities.

Comprehensive in design, MCS includes a full range of value adding conveyor functions such as transportation, accumulation, merging, diverting and sorting.

Modular Design

Dematic's MCS is an advanced system that uses a universal side channel and standard components for all modules to provide the ability to change the function of a conveyor without having to change-out entire conveyor sections.

For example, a section of roller conveyor can be converted to a belt conveyor for handling more difficult loads.
A transportation conveyor can be changed to accumulation or vice versa.

A right angle transfer can easily be inserted into a section of conveyor without effecting operational performance. Such modifications can generally be made without removing or replacing sections of conveyor.

The MCS
modular design delivers even greater flexibility when relocating or reconfiguring typically saving many thousands of dollars in complex changeovers. These can now be done quickly, easily and cost effectively.

Modular components

MCS provides users the benefits of standardisation with the same carrier rollers, motor driven rollers, segmented belts, side frames, electronic sensors, motor controls, zone control logic assemblies, drive belts, and other components used throughout all modules.


Dematic's MCS also offers more drive options, using AC drive motors, DC low voltage motor driven rollers, or a combination of both. These drive solutions not only extend the range of applications, but also offer low energy consumption.
