Compass systems for both production and recycling applications are found in automotive plants throughout the world. With over 30 years of automotive material handling experience Compass Systems has developed some of the most innovative pneumatic systems around, finding new ways to cut costs and improve reliability. Our ability to handle tough metal parts and scrap while minimizing moving parts has made Compass the engineers of choice in stamping operations and other automotive applications.


We have pioneered ways to move different grades of metals with the least amount of moving parts. This makes Compass systems less prone to failure, downtime and costly maintenance requirements. Our automated conveyance systems use integrated control systems to reduce labor costs Sophisticated controls also monitor and maintain process visibility in challenging environments and facilities operating 24/7. We use all major sensor brands and match them to the application to ensure both system reliability and dependable monitoring.

In recycling operations, we used tough shredders to maximize the amount of material deposited into rail cars or trucks. The pneumatic system used to transport materials to the shredders are equally tough, often requiring coating of inner tube surfaces to combat abrasion. Our recycling systems have provided 99% reliable material segregation resulting in higher scrap values and elimination of secondary processing.


We fabricate components for material handling systems in our Ohio factory. Here our ASME certified welders ensure that fabrication of components meets or exceeds customer requirements. Every part of a custom system is fit together and tested to ensure smooth installation and reliable performance.


Once your system is ready, we’ll be there to set it up and service it. We have supervised and built material handling facilities worldwide.

Automotive Industry Handling Metal Scrap:

One of the “Big Three” Automotive Manufacturers was faced with the challenge of having to produce stamped body panels from both steel and aluminum while the plant & scrap material handling systems were designed to process only steel. What they needed was an efficient method of allowing the existing stamping lines to produce both steel & aluminum parts and effectively segregate the steel and aluminum scrap and remove it from the building. And once the scrap was produced have a cost efficient method of handling the scrap for recycling. Read More
