Another good example of how CompuWeigh was able to handle a highly custom project of directly unloading rail cars to ship by using pre-existing GMS Smart Options and HMI/PLC Automation.

We provided our 60,000 BPH scale with 60 degree slopes, urethane liners and vibrators to handle a wide range of difficult products, including meal. Total height of scale was only 33′-3″.

System included automatic test weight lifting, hydraulic power unit and lower garner gate.

The scale is controlled by our top of the line GMS-4000 controller including:

  • SmartTech that automatically monitors the scale for correct operation
  • SmartLoad that ensures that the scale continues to run while a new car is positioned under the spout, and
  • SmartRead that automatically reads the rail cars and calculates the optimum amount to load into each car.
  • SmartBatch that automatically manages the unloading of batches of cars and reconciles the weight to the individual origin weights sent in the Pre-Advise List.


CompuWeigh also provided Wonderware automation system that controls the cars as they are unloaded and manages the loading of the individual holds in the ship.
