CMS – Chemical Management System

V5 Chemical Management System is the perfect way to ensure chemicals are measured & traced accurately and consistently, without costly giveaway or out of specification batches. (Traceability)

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

The systems 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.

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

User Friendly Touch Screens

The Chemical Management 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.

The system allows non-strict inventory rotation.  Commodity specific messaging ensures operator confirmation with requirements such as Safety Instructions, Toxic Materials & NADCAP staging requirements.

Safety, SOP’s & QA

Commodity specific messaging ensures operator confirmation with requirements such as Safety Instructions, HACCP & SOP’s.

Import the latest GHS Safety & Allergen Symbols to display to operators at the correct time, each time.

Create a custom library of quality assurance questions and answers to facilitate the requirements of HACCP, COSHH, SOP’s and GMP (plus many other qualify and safety standards).

The system records responses to batch specific questions, allowing for a paperless QA environment.

Batch / RFID Labels

Many label printing options exist to identify the needs of certain WIP / Batch printing applications.  (Click here for finished product label printing).

Standard Label Fields

Job Number, Batch Number, Recipe Code, Recipe Description, Operator Code, Operator Name, Produced Date & Time, Batch Expiration Date & Time, Mix Size, Batch Size, Nett & Gross Weighing, Container Count.

Labeling Events (batch events which generate labels)

Batch end, container change (prompted of programmed), separate ingredients, non-weighed items (whole bags etc), suspended batch, aborted batch.

Hardware Specifications

The SG15 Touch Screen is a NEMA4X (IP66) 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 Terminals 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 terminals utilize TCP/IP communications to a database using a wired or wireless LAN.  This allows multiple Terminal to communicate with a central database.  Terminal support is conducted using VNC or RDC.

Now we have SG Systems installed, batches are achieved with great accuracy!
