Chemical Batching System

V5 Chemical Batching System is the perfect way to ensure chemical traceability. Chemicals are measured & traced accurately, without costly giveaway or out-of-specification batches. CMS is the ultimate in Chemical Batching Systems / Chemical Traceability Software.

The system ensures each weighed ingredient has enforced +/- tolerances, preventing formulation completion until all chemicals are accurately weighed using the green target zone.

Chemical Batching System validates lot numbers (barcode & rfid), providing real time inventory usage and eliminating costly traceability paperwork.  SG Systems provide ERP Integration Services – See ERP Page

Hundreds of configuration options exist in the standard system, enabling each workstation to be setup to handle many applications including batch, campaign and combination weighing.

V5 provides effortless compliance with NADCAP (for resin, glass, composite, paint weigh ups) and many other quality standards.

User Friendly Touch Screens

Chemical Batching System allows management to schedule production plans (or import from ERP) to 1 or more area specific terminals.

Each formula step has unique conditions (weighed, non-weighed, counted, bulk control ect) and jobs can be weighed in ‘Batch’ or ‘Campaign’ mode (campaign weighing allows common ingredients from 1 or more jobs to be weighed simultaneously.

V5 allows inventory rotation.  Commodity specific messaging ensures operator confirmation with requirements such as Safety Instructions, Toxic Materials & NADCAP staging requirements within the Chemical Traceability Software.

Hardware Specifications

V5 Touch Screen is a NEMA4X (IP69) heavy industrial computer designed for harsh manufacturing  applications. It is usually supplied with a stainless steel fabricated stand with a built in scale, however the terminal can be supplied and connected to most existing scales and balances using internal connections.

The terminal is constructed using compression seals to maximize ingress protection.  Cables entries are sealed and protected.

The Chemical Batching Systems are supplied with software applications which run on Windows or Linux as a background operating system.

Stainless steel stands, scales and printer enclosures are fully welded and polished to high manufacturing standards.

Supported Peripherals

  • Weighing Equipment (4 x analogue inputs, 4 x serial RS232 inputs).
  • Bar-code Readers (hardwired USB or Bluetooth)
  • Label & RFID Printers (network)
  • Report Printers (network)
  • Temperature Probes (serial RS232)
  • PLC & switchgear (serial or network)


The chemical traceability terminals utilize TCP/IP communications to a database using a wired or wireless LAN.  This allows multiple Chemical Traceability Software Terminals to communicate with a central database.  Terminal support is conducted using VNC or RDC.
