Mechanical Veeder-Root products set the industry standard for rugged reliable solutions for piece counting, linear measurement and position indication.
Mechanical counters serve as the primary counter in some applications; however, they are also popular as a backup to electronic devices where a redundant or failsafe counter is needed.
Veeder-Root Mechanical Counters are rugged yet reliable solutions to piece counting, linear measurement, and position indication. Our extensive portfolio of heavy-duty counting devices serves many applications, including:
The Visicounter 1667 and 1669 Series mechanical counters are very popular, rugged, industrial strength counters available in ratchet drive and gear drive models. They feature 6 large easy to read digits and knob reset with robust 5/16 inch diameter input shaft (oversized at 7.9mm vs. 7mm standard).Shop Series →
A mechanical counter is a counting device powered by the movement of a ratchet. Mechanical counters serve as indicators or totalizers for individual items or sequences of events.
With no power source needed, mechanical counters operate based on the old principle of carrying over. A rotary or ratchet input prompts the mechanical counter to increment the turn of a simple number wheel. Often viewed as primal technology, mechanical counters are integral components of many applications where advanced technology is not reliable or durable.
Electric counters offer a single or multi-functional digital counting solution time indication (such as in time meters and clocks) or rate indication (such as tachometers). Unlike mechanical counters, electric counters boast easy-to-read LED displays. Learn more about electronic counters here.
