Based on our 25 years long experience in sheets counting, at the end two years of research and development, we have realized the New Counting Head with "ADR 32" technology for single and twin heads counters and for automatic counters of the PACK MOVER line.
The ADR 32 system keep the keys benefits of Dual System Technology counting created by B.Matic in 1993 that counts with twin aspiration palettes without corner deformation nor scratching and having the widest counting range on the market.ADR 32 has tripled the counting speed and improved the accuracy on thin sheets thanks to a new mechanical core and the latest generation electronic. ADR 32has been designed and realized to meet the severe standards of currency sheets counting but it is perfect also for the commercial printing, converting and packaging applications.
ADR 32 technology counting heads will be installed in a short time on the new sheets counting machines with single and twin heads and on the automatic sheets counters system PACK MOVER. Multiple versions to meet specific requirements in the security and high security printing, commercial printing, converting and packaging.
These are the key points:
1-Sheets friendly counting system, not curling and not scratching the corner. ADR 32 draws on Dual System technology and further improves the contact on the sheets surface under the four following aspects:
A - The mechanical assembly does not rest on the sheets
B - The counting hands trajectory reaches the sheets edge from the top without touching and without side insertion, therefore without scratching.
C - The ADR 32 does not involve turning pins introduction into the pack.
D - The counting plates are made of special anti-scratch material.
2-Mechanical group completely redesigned to reach 3.000 sheets per minute also during tab insertion (+200% with respect to the traditional Dual System).
3-Tab insertion system working accurately at high speed, slowing down the operations for fraction of second only.
4-Optic fibre technology to intercept ,"see" and count in a few microseconds time the sheets aspirated one by one by the counting hands. In the security version a simultaneous cross checking is executed on every counting head.
5-Counting head positioning system driven by optic fibre technology adapting better to deformed surfaces and, unlike competing technologies, keeps a few tenths of millimetres off the sheets without touching, therefore not curling nor scratching the sheets.
6-Rapid and easy adjustment for sheets thickness with "Easy Clips" system to change the counting plates in few seconds
7-Counting paper, cardboard and plastic sheets, from 40 to 800 μM thickness (depending on the paper counter models.
8-Optional pack lifting group with synchronized pushers to relieve the pressure of very thick packs on the mechanical assembly in order to reduce the wear and vibrations.
9-High resolution wide touch screen with USB/Ethernet connections and SD memory card.
10-Icon interface, modern software with advanced functions and diagnostic tools.
ADR 32 technology counting heads will be installed on the new sheets counting machines with single and twin heads and on the automatic sheets counters system PACK MOVER. Multiple versions to meet specific requirements in the security and high security printing, commercial printing, converting and packaging.
PROTEC ADR 32 CM is the compact high speed sheets counter exploiting ADR Counting Technology.
Optimized engineering allowed us to create a sturdy tabletop paper counting machine equipped with this exclusive system, that makes our sheets counters unique in the World.
"ADR" Technology counts picking the sheets one by one with two aspirating plates, making it possible to count not only plain paper but also cardboard and plastic with no corner deformation nor scratching. In spite of its reduced dimensions, PROTEC ADR 32 CM paper counter can count a wide range of sheets weights (from 40GSM to 500GSM depending on the model) at high counting speed (max. 2.400 sheets/minute). Adjustments for changing the thickness of the sheets to be counted are extremely quick, without any mechanical tool: manual replacement of the counting plates will take the operator a few seconds only. The traditionally well refined B.MATIC mechanical system guarantees a sound paper counting machine. PROTEC ADR 32 CM 1 can be equipped with tab inserting facility to split the pack into sets of preset quantity (optional).
PROTEC ADR 32 CM Vs PROTEC ADR 32 ST
PROTEC ADR 32 CM is equipped with latest ADR 32 technology and is designed to count especially small medium size and especially medium volumes. It has not the same heavy and sturdy structure of the PROTEC ADR 32 ST and it cannot be equipped with data transfer, variable tabbing or blowing table. For high volumes of heavy reams the PROTEC ADR 32 L/H/W is suggested. However, PROTEC ADR 32 CM can also be supplied with 70 x 100 cm table and base.
PROTEC CM ADR VERSIONS
Three versions available:
PROTEC ADR 32 CM 1: FOR SHEETS UP TO 150 GSM, MAX. SPEED OF 1.400 SHEETS/MINUTE
PROTEC ADR 32 CM 2: FOR SHEETS UP TO 250 GSM, MAX. SPEED OF 2.400 SHEETS/MINUTE
PROTEC ADR 32 CM 3: FOR SHEETS UP TO 500 GSM, MAX. SPEED OF 2.400 SHEETS/MINUTE
PROTEC CM ADR 1
This is the entry model suitable for counting plain paper up to max 150 GSM and speed of max 1.400 sheets/minute. It is perfect for applications of medium and low volumes and limited range of counted sheets. Like all other PROTEC ADR 32 CM it is tabletop and can be optionally supplied with tab inserter, big table and base.
Equipped with ADR counting tech, presenting following key features:
Counting technology not scratching nor curling the corner of the sheets.
Quick and easy settings and low maintenance required.
Optic fiber system for reliable and precise counting.
Tolerance to curled sheets thanks to the newly introduced "Stabilizer" system.
Ideal solution when low/medium counting volumes, and for working in line with guillotines.
Suitable for use in small printing departments, offices.
This new counter of PACK MOVER line is designed to work beside the guillotine for a rapid and effective product flow.
Instead of restacking the trimmed reams, the guillotine operator make them shift into the inlet of the automatic counter on air surfaces. PACK MOVER LP counts and splits them into packs ready for packaging.
Counting and Folding.
PACK MOVER LP automatically splits the inlet pack into batches of preset quantity.
It then impresses a central folding on the counted pack and lays it on a conveyor ready for packaging.
If not required, the machine can be delivered also without the folding unit.
It is not necessary to restack the trimmed / cut reams, since they are moved directly to the counting.
No need for pile handling. Naturally, PACK MOVER LP can be used independently from a guillotine station, the operator loading the reams into the machine.
Counting is done without curling nor scratching the sheets thanks to the original DUAL SYSTEM technology..

During the early 90s, while B.MATIC was active in the field of tab inserting equipment, some important customers asked us to supply machines for counting reams and piles of paper sheets. The simplest and straightforward way was to copy the paper counting system already on the market just like American and Japanese companies were doing.
In that moment, .B.MATIC chose its future and its philosophy: inventing is better than copying.
In a few years time the first paper counter was invented and showcased. Thanks to the "Dual System" technology, it is able to count and batch a pack of sheets, even thick ones, without corners deformation or without shifting them from the ream.
Later on, one of the major innovative features of "DualSystem", the sheets counting from the top onwards, enabled us to enact a second decisive innovation:
at the beginning of the third millennium B.MATIC designed and realized the "PackMover" the only paper counting equipment to count, pick and shift a pack of given number of sheets directly from the pile.
These two inventions have promoted and spread B.MATIC paper counters throughout the World while the technology was tested on the field in hundreds of applications and many working years. Subsequent incremental refinements have led our sheets counting equipment to the reliability and stability typical of technical maturity.
Furthermore, recently they have been themselves object of imitation by some of our competitors and we are proud of this confirmation of our technological leadership.
Our focus will always be on the research and development of innovations in order to maintain this same leadership...and the best is yet to come!
At present many project are under development with many important novelties for the paper counting industry: trust us and you won't be deceived.
