A case study on what it takes to make the highest speed, most accurate bulkweighing scale system
CompuWeigh has always sold more bulkweighing scale controllers to the Grain industry than all its competitors combined. It was only recently however, that CompuWeigh also became the largest supplier of the physical scales themselves. This is because customers recognize that to get the best results, the scale and the controller must work seamlessly together and the best way to ensure this is to have one company take responsibility for both.
