About Us

cwcOffice2CompuWeigh was incorporated in 1978 when it introduced the first computerized legal-for-trade bulkweighing system for the grain industry. Since then CompuWeigh has remained the dominant player in scale control for the grain industry by providing more than 60% of all the bulkweighing control systems in the U.S. In the last two years CompuWeigh has added a full range of bulk weighing hopper scales sized from 0.5 to 3,500 tons/hour.

CompuWeigh provides a comprehensive Windows based data management system called the Grain Management System® (GMS) that integrates weighing, grading and inventory management with customers’ accounting systems.

CompuWeigh has an Automation Division that specializes in automating grain, feed and fertilizer facilities by using PLCs and HMI systems, like Wonderware. The company also offers a number of specially developed components like SmartGate and SmartWatch that provide integrated low cost solutions for controlling gates and monitoring bearing temperatures.

ProbeScreen42010
SmartChoice system automatically directs inbound trucks to a specific dump pit based on a truck’s commodity and grade factors.


AWMS
AWMS (Automated Weights Management System) approved by Government which reduces the number of Government Officials required to export grain. Only system that doesn’t require installing expensive redundant I/O.

SmartBlock
Second generation of the SmartBlock desktop RF reader for Gen II RFID tags. Features a tough aluminum body and Ethernet connectivity for easy access from anywhere.

OTP-46002009
OTP-4600 heavy duty outside ticket printer introduced that provides up to 6,000 tickets off one roll of paper.


SmartCard

SmartCard2008
CompuWeigh introduces SmartCard Dispenser & Collector that issue and collect credit card sized RF tags so they can be reused.


SmartTalk
CompuWeigh introduces SmartTalk the first high quality intercom system that provides crystal clear conversation by eliminating truck engine noise.

h2006a2007
CompuWeigh introduces its web-based Logistics System for the Grain Industry. For the first time Logistics staff can see from any computer the location of their rail cars and barges in close to real-time. When used with CompuWeigh’s Grain Management System® actual weights and grades of the barges and rail cars can also be viewed. System includes EDI management with the Railroads.

h2006b2006
CompuWeigh introduces its web-based Inventory System that replaces the typical elevator bin board while providing senior management with the ability to review inventory positions across multiple locations and to manage I.P. throughout the organization.

h2005c2005
CompuWeigh introduces SmartTruck which leverages the new inexpensive Wal-Mart Gen2 RF tags, Internet audio/video cameras, electronic display boards and outside printers to fully automate truck receiving and shipping.

h2004b2004
CompuWeigh introduces SmartPlay a breakthrough product that allows a Manager to run a movie in slow motion on any previous bulkweighing scale order to investigate problems. All information, including scale animation, SmartTech alarms, Opto box lights and transaction information are shown exactly the same as on the original order..

h20042004
CompuWeigh Automation introduces Smart Read II, a major upgrade to the original SmartRead product. For the first time, wheel sensors are incorporated into the system so that even cars with missing RF tags are recognized. SmartRead II allows the RF frequency to be set programmatically so that multiple readers, or other systems using RF, can all work in the same area. The signal power can be tuned on site to ensure that the signal strength is optimized for accurate tag reading without picking up cars on other tracks.

h20032003
CompuWeigh Automation introduces SmartWatch the first totally digital hazard monitoring system that provides differential temperature rather then preset temperatures. This provides much more accurate alarms. Like SmartGate it uses a network topology that dramatically reduces the amount of wiring and time required to install the system.

h20022002
CompuWeigh Automation introduces SmartGate, the first intelligen’ gate that automatically corrects its position if it drifts from its required position. System provides markedly improved results for customers, like flour mills, that require accurate and consistent blends. Network topology significantly reduces installation costs for both new and retrofit applications.

h20012001
CompuWeigh introduces the Compudraft CD-4000 controller, the fastest, most accurate bulkweighing controller on the market. Accuracy is to within one bushel of target weight (but is typically within 10 lbs), allowing cars to be loaded to their full load limit. The CD-4000 loads a unit train in about an hour less that our previous controller.

h20002000
CompuWeigh introduces Super SmartLoad which automatically starts the bulkweighing scale before the next rail car is in position Typically this option reduces unit rail load time out by an hour.

h19991999
Introduces SmartTech the first and only automatic bulk scale diagnostic system. It monitors over 40 potential scale problems and shows the operator on the screen what the problem is, where it is located and how to fix it.

h19961996
CompuWeigh introduces SmartRead, the first automatic identification of grain rail cars from their RF tags. A sister product, the SmartCar database contains all the grain cars in North America allowing CompuWeigh to automatically calculate the optimum amount to load into each rail car. The system has become the standard that competitors have emulated.

h19951995
CompuWeigh launches CompuWeigh Automation to provide facility automation – allowing customers to truly enjoy one-stop-shopping. Capabilities range from simple start/stop control to fully automated multi-scale ship/receive systems. Whether the facility is new or a retrofit, CompuWeigh Automation provides the necessary technology to improve the process and to reduce manpower.Unlike other systems, the scales are completely integrated into the system.CompuWeigh Automation now accounts for 30% of CompuWeigh’s total sales.

h19941994
CompuWeigh introduces the Grain Management System® (GMS), the first “Windows” based N.T.E.P. approved system for weighing on both platform and bulkweighing scales. Over the years this system has been greatly expanded to include, multiple scales running on one computer, grading, inventory management, accounting interface and integration to plant automation.

h19881988
CompuWeigh introduces an N.T.E.P. approved legal-for-trade Process Hopper Scale, with hopper sizes ranging from 2.5 cu ft. – 10 cu ft. (now expanded to include 15 and 20 cu. ft), offering cost-effective technology to worldwide markets for low volume (0.5 to 90 tons/hour) in-process applications. Scales handle a variety of bulk materials including grains, flours, beans, salt, plastics and cement. Complete system is pre-assembled and tested before shipment. The customer only needs to supply air and AC power to get the system running.

h19851985
CompuWeigh introduces the Compudraft 2000, a controller with no-moving-parts It immediately sets a new standard for accuracy and reliability at half the price of competitive products. More than a thousand grain elevators and 85% of all U.S. export grain elevators installed this controller.

h19811981
CompuWeigh introduces the first totally enclosed bulkweighing hopper system, now a grain industry standard. The system eliminates the venting problems of previous systems.

h19781978
CompuWeigh introduces the Compudraft 1000, the first computerized legal-for-trade bulkweighing controller. This revolutionized the bulkweighing industry, replacing old lever-beam scale systems with load cells and microcomputers.
