Max-Bantam High-Speed Paper Counter Video Demo

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Max Bantam High-Speed Paper CounterDo you need to count thousands of sheets of paper, invoices, stickers, coupons and other material? What you need is a commercial paper counter. One great model you should take a look at is the Max-Bantam from U.S. Paper Counters. This paper counter is perfect for industrial use and can be used in print shops and many other businesses. I have had the chance on many occasions to use this machine and have even shot a video demo of it in use.

The first thing I was most impressed about while using the Max-Bantam was the accuracy of the machine.  It literally counted the sheets of paper I inserted right down to the last sheet. I had well over 1,000 sheets of paper in the machine and tried re-counting the stack every time. The accuracy is amazing.

Not only does the Max-Bantam count paper, but it can also insert tabs into the sheets for batch counting purposes. Setting the machine up for batch counting is extremely easy. Simply let the machine know where you need the tabs and it will pop a tab in every select amount of sheets

Another item of note is the build quality. The build quality on the Max-Bantam is exceptional. This may have something to do with the fact that it is made in the USA. I have opened up all the various compartments on this machine and have accessed the internal workings of the machine. Everything in it is solid.

In conclusion, I have to say that the Max-Bantam is a solid piece of equipment, worthy of high-volume and high-speed projects. Tabbing at speeds of 2,000 sheets per minute, you’ll have your counting jobs done in no time.

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

U.S. Paper Counters Shooter II Press TabberIf you work for or run a printing press, you know how important it is to tab, organize, batch count and separate print jobs. One machine you may want to consider using is an automatic tabber. One machine designed to help with in-line tab inserting is the Shooter-II press tabber (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, the Shooter-II is designed to be positioned at the delivery end of your equipment. It can deliver tabs into the delivery pile of presses, sheeters, folders and other converting equipment that uses a receding pile delivery system. It can be mounted to the equipment or be used as a stand-alone device.

The Shooter-II counts at speeds equal to the equipment being used at a speed of up to three tabs per second, which is very fast. This helps to increase profits by quickly eliminating overages and shortages with extremely accurate counting at tabbing. The Shooter-II also helps making competitive quotes easier.

So how does the actual counting and tabbing work? The Shooter-II can be set up via a micro switch or by using a universal electronic pick up. An optional Infrared reflective opto sensor can be used, which requires no connection to your equipment.

A few additional features include:

  • Total and batch counts
  • Variable tape lengths
  • Variable knife cut delays
  • Back lit LCD display

The Shooter II can also be customized to best suit your application. A few optional customizations include:

  • Multiple tabbing heads (up to three)
  • A 90-degree angle tape chute
  • A swivel bracket mount
  • Stagger tabbing
  • Additional base stands and swivel mounts
  • Custom tape chute lengths
  • Infrared reflective opto sensor

Customizations can be built into the Shooter-II in the factory. If any of these customizable options sound like something you need, you can speak with one of our specialists at 1-800-658-8788 and get a quote. Don’t see a customization that you may need? Ask us. We may still be able to build it in at the factory.

Overall the Shooter-II is a durable machine that gets the job done. It is one of the most customizable machines that I have seen and I really like how compatible it is with most machines out there. It is easy to set up and is designed to be used all day long.

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Why use a paper counter? Is it really that hard to count paper? These are a few of the questions that come up with the topic of paper counters is brought up to those unfamiliar with the printing industry. I can understand why these questions are asked.

The slightest inconsistency or inaccuracy, even being off just a few percentage points, can cost a business a lot of money. Paper counters not only save time, but are extremely accurate too.

We have a created a paper counter guide designed not just to help the general public, but printers as well.

The Max-Bantam counts paper with speed and precision.

Monday, June 12th, 2006

Max Bantam Paper CounterThere are many paper counters out there designed to count large stacks of paper quickly and efficiently. Many of the paper counters out there measure the thickness of a stack of paper and give a precise “estimate” of the total number of sheets. I figured this must be one of the quickest and most economical ways to count paper.

ABC Office eventually came across the Max-Bantom paper counter. This paper counter counts ever single sheet, rather than measure the thickness of the stack. This gives you a precise total every time. I counted a stack of 388 sheets of paper four times, and the counter came up with 388 every time.

The Max-Bantom was easy to set up and use. I was surprised to find that batch counting could be done with the push of a few buttons. I decided to set the machine up for batch counting every 20 sheets. After 20 sheets, the counter placed a tab in the stack of paper.

This paper counter is certainly worth looking at if you are in the market for a fast paper counter that can keep precise count of paper inventory. We are in the process of getting the video ready for the Web, but you are certainly more than welcome to request a live video demo. Our customer service reps will get a camera and show you every little detail over the Internet.
