Paper Abstract

A simple, portable device is described which is able to count the number of sheets of metal or plastic plates in a stack. The device, for which patents have been applied, is capable of counting plates which are only 0.1 mm thick. The limiting resolution of the device is limited only by the quality of the optical system used and the relative stability between the plates to be counted and the measuring device itself.
