PerfectCount High-Speed Counting Machines
Sciotex develops many custom counting solutions for manufacturing and packaging operations. It can be one of our PerfectCount parts counters or a custom counting machine developed for your specific needs. We have experience counting in drop-zones, conveyors and large and small scale robotics. Partnering with the counting experts at Sciotex saves you significant time and money.
Ditch the Scales and Deliver Superior Counting
Common practice in high-volume manufacturing and packing operations is to estimate the number of parts by their weight. Unfortunately, varying sizes and material densities often lead to wasteful overfill. Counting small parts manually or by weight is one of the most expensive and time-consuming tasks.
Be a hero by solving this problem with PerfectCount: the high speed counter and small parts counting machine.
PerfectCount uses vision based technology to individually count each part at lightning fast speeds. How fast? As one example, 1.25mm pellets can be counted at over 1,000 parts per second! That’s hero territory!
We have table-top models to fully integrated systems. The PerfectCount counting machine is designed, built and supported in the United States to exacting standards. PerfectCount has been developed to save significant time and money. Often paying for itself in a very short time.
No other counting machine can match this counter for speed. Round 1.25 mm pellets can be counted at 1,000 per second, and large objects like ¼-20 nuts at 200 per second.
PerfectCount counting systems achieve >99.99% accuracy at lower feed rates and maintain accuracy above 99.5% for speeds into the hundreds of parts/sec for most parts.
No more labor intensive hand counting or wasteful overfilling based on weight. PerfectCount systems have ROI as low as a few weeks for most applications.
Flexible & Easy
Standard counter system counts objects between 0.3 mm and 30 mm. The easy-to-use software allows for counting and packing. Further customization for your needs is available.
How Does it Work?
Unmatched Ease, Speed & Counting Accuracy
Our state-of-the-art vision-based technology with advanced image acquisition and custom analysis software work together to provide the ultimate in high-speed counting with very high accuracy.
Small objects fall through a “drop zone” where they are imaged by a high speed camera 35,000 times/sec, which “sees” the falling objects from two view angles.
Any Shape, Any Material - Instantly Measures Size Distribution
PerfectCount works with objects of any shape: disks, balls, rods, objects with holes, or even complex geometries. Material type doesn’t matter to PerfectCount. Transparent glass, polished metal, and many food items are not a problem. A special version of PerfectCount has been developed for seed counting applications (https://sciotex.com/products/seed-counter)
In addition to high speed counting, PerfectCount provides real-time information about the three-dimensional size distribution of the parts.
These two orthogonal views allow our custom counting software to compensate for cases where objects overlap in one or both views, which allows PerfectCount to provide extremely accurate counts at high speeds.
Which Model Do I Need?
Read our buyers guide to learn about the different models.
We have written a buyers guide to help educate you on the different drop-zone models we offer. This will help you learn about the best technology to use for your parts. And we are always here to help you navigate with a demo or chat.
In addition to these models we have developed many custom counting applications for drop-zone, conveyor and many robotic applications.

How Much Does it Cost?
Estimate Your Return on Investment
We created a basic calculator to help you figure out how good the counter is for any given application. This assumes that you are using a scale and overpacking to ensure adequate filling. We also assume for this calculator that you are using the standard size of counter, and that you will aim for 99.8% accuracy (all errors being undercounting), so you will overpack by 0.2% with the counter.
