Automotive Material Handling Solutions

Important Considerations 

Whether it is Pneumatic conveyors, Steel Hinged Belt conveyors, Ocillating Conveyors or a combination; Compass engineered solutions for 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. 

From frequent part updates, new models and material changes to the body sheet material, the Automotive industry changes often. Automotive manufacturers and suppliers need automotive material handling systems that can keep up with a changing industry. Compass Systems can provide custom automotive material handling solutions based on what type of conveyor systems you need. Below are just some of the capabilities and automotive material handling systems we offer.

Types of Automotive Systems

Compass has developed All (En) Compassing solutions

For automotive companies and suppliers worldwide: 



  • Compass systems use the least number of moving parts. 
  • Robust systems handle tough metals, maintaining uptime and reliability.
  • Sophisticated controls provide reliable visibility and automated maintenance.
  • Top quality component fabrication ensures reliable performance
  • All (En) Compassing Solutions Provide Single Point Accountability

Related Case Studies



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 fabricated and shipped to the job site, well be there to install it.  We have supervised and built material handling facilities worldwide. 



We are always by your side, with global service support on all of our systems and other systems you may need support with.  Call us for service support, on site audits or other needs our service department may be able to assist with.
