Rolling Yard Counter

Textile length measuring wheels

MSZ96FW is a high precision, high speed, distance/ length measuring wheel or Rolling counter. It measures up to 9,999 yards while the extra red number shows tents of yard.

MSZ96FW has large digits (8.5 mm high) for better visibility and is rated for speeds up to 360 rpm (or 120 yards per minute). Reset push button is on the left of the display.

This rolling yard counter may be installed in production or packaging machines to measure the length of fabric, paper, wire, foils, ropes, strings, ribbons and similar products.

How to install a length measuring system?

The length measuring unit must sit on the moving fabric so that the wheel or wheels are aligned with the direction of movement.

 Price and Availability

Mount a bar that extends to the sides or middle of the moving roll of fabric and stands about 4 inches above the material. Get a large hinge. Install the counter on one side of the hinge and secure the other side to bar.

It is best if you use screws for all connections. In some cases however you may use rivets if you are sure that the installation is permanent. If you cannot find the right size hinge, use a smaller hinge and extend it as needed using aluminum sheet metal or pieces of wood.

Another option is connecting the measuring device to the bar using piece of sheet metal (no hinge); instead you must install the hinge in the beginning of the bar.

A typical installation of the length measuring unit

Installing the hinge in the beginning of the bar allows you to lift the bar and keep it away from the moving fabric when the measurements are not needed.
