Measurement Calls for Precision

Posted by Ed Kenny

When it comes to measurement, you need to be precise and accurate. Veeder-Root allows for just that.  We would like to introduce to you the 1953 Series Gear Driven Visicounter. This mechanical counter is perfect for precision linear measurement of all types of moving materials, including textiles, sheet, roll, paper, rope, cable products and so many more.

The 1953 Series is designed and manufactured to provide years of trouble-free service in the most rigorous industrial applications. All models are right handed drive, with availability in clock-wise and counterclockwise rotation for addition and opposite rotation to subtract. The 1953 Series is equipped with various wheels that you can work to better fit your application. 

Our measuring wheels are diecast and machined to the highest standards of quality. Circumferences of 1 foot and 1/3 meter are standard and are accurate to ±0.1% of stated size. Two bore sizes are provided, which fit most mechanical counters with 5/16” (6.4mm) or 1/4” (8.0mm) diameter shafts. Recessed set-screws secure the wheel firmly to the shaft.

Choose from 1/2” (12.7mm) or 1” (25.4mm) width - rubber, smooth aluminum or knurled aluminum contact surfaces, for the most reliable contact with the measured material. A special purpose tapered grooved wheel, 1/2” (12.7mm) width only, is ideal for accurate measurement of materials such as thread, wire, rope, braid and cable, from the smallest diameter to more than 1/4” (6.4mm) diameter. When used with counters with 1:1 or 1:10 drive ratios, these wheels will produce highly accurate resolutions of 1 foot or 1/10 foot. With geared drive counters, resolution of yards or 1/8 yard is possible. 1/3 meter wheels are typically used with 3:1 drive ratio counters, for resolution in meters.

Multifunction timers, as the name implies, are capable of providing a broad range of timing functions, or modes, within a single unit or SKU. This capability is certainly an important consideration in this day and age as end users, OEM’s, distributors, and others are looking for ways to reduce electronic timer inventories and yet be able to have programmable timer solutions for a wide range of applications. A multifunction timer is designed to be user set or programmed for a desired specific available timing mode or function. This overview provides some common features and timing modes/functions available in multifunction timers.

What Are The Different Types & Applications Of Totalizing Counters?

Posted by Phillip Warwick

May 19, 2014 2:00:00 PM

Totalizers are counters that “total” the number of cycles applied to their inputs. The totalizing function does not provide control outputs or preset limits, although some of our multi-function products have totalizing capability as well as output and control functions. They may be a mechanical counter, electromechanical counter or an electronic counter, all of which may be resettable or non-resettable.

The Invention of Numbers and Mechanical Counter Technology

Posted by Phillip Warwick

Apr 7, 2014 3:40:24 PM

Mechanical counters, now that’s a term synonymous with robust, long lasting and dependable counting and measuring instruments. About four thousand years ago one of the greatest inventions in history was created, comparable in importance to the wheel and the control of fire. This was the counting board- an arrangement of flat surfaces, lines, and small objects or tokens that gave man the ability to handle numbers.
