CD/DVD Counting

DVD-250 CD/DVD Spindle Counter


Losing count of DVD/CDs in production can be very costly, particularly when it becomes necessary to re-mount stampers to complete an order. Accurate counts of CD/DVDs helps to minimise rework, reconcile production counts, ensure accurate delivery quantities and reduce material and labour costs.

Bronway Ltd. has now designed the DVD-250 Spindle Counter to address the specific, ever-changing count demands created by new disc formats.

New DVD formats (including DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW) are continually placing greater demands on count technology.

DVD Count issues now include:

  • Smaller stacking rings
  • Greater disc warp
  • Wider variation of disc thickness
  • Increased focus and importance on operator Health & Safety.

(Not all counter laser devices on the market conform to US and EU workplace Health and Safety regulations. This can expose your operators to serious eye and skin damage and your company to potentially expensive lawsuits)

All Bronway CD/DVD spindle counters conform strictly to CE and US workplace Health & Safety regulations.
