Counting uncountable products
Guarantee the right determinate quantity of final products is still a big challenge for several kinds of industries, independent of which niche of market, some of them uses manual counting or weight measure to check the number of items. It seems to be not so productivity (in the case of manual) neither precisely (especially in the case of weight for light or small product used at balance). For paper and derivate it is suitable to count by properly automatic machine, for example UCHIDA has in portfolio Countron Series (models Touch and AT, for papers and derivate).
In the case of special products, one which is becoming most and most common are personalized plastic cards, like member card. This is a part of B2C strategy that your company can be much closer for end-users and know about their behavior as well. Because we are talking about information, it needs to be keep in safe, so its control is totally indispensable and managed by minimal steps of production.
It is the same motive of operation panel’s membrane of an equipment, for example. To avoid the risk of this panel is going to be used in an alternative non-authorized final product and sold as official one, it is necessary to control this quantity.
There is a large applications more, like PCB, gaskets, playing cards, envelopes, manual, booklets, security items and finished packaging (different kind of shapes) which needs to be counted accurately, avoid waste and save time. So, thinking in this demand, UCHIDA developed a new counter machine, named as Countron OP.
In Countron OP the counter mechanism is based in optical sensor, it means, the machine does not need to touch the material or product, therefore it is available to be used in several different kinds of items and thickness, providing a wide range of jobs. This high technology is combined with 6’ touch screen where the concept of friendly use can setup and run jobs, included check details of counting (it shows the frequency used to count, so it enables to count different types of thickness).
Thanks for great design and considering the market’s niches the model is so compact and light ones, and there are handle carries to place it everywhere easier. It results in a fantastic convenient machine.
To collect all information after counting, it can be equipped with thermal printer and/or count log management system, which presents the results through a data plan. Besides it is possible to combine larger table and air compressor (especially for light products).
