A Kirby Lester counting device can handle a wide variety of small widgets, gadgets and parts for manufacturers who need always-accurate QC or batch counting.
Are you using a hand-counting tray, a scale or a roller-board to batch-count or QC small objects? These manual methods are proven to be inaccurate and inefficient — hence, money-wasting. Kirby Lester counting technology is highly adaptable for any manufacturing setting where always-accurate counting of like-sized pieces is imperative.

Whether you call it a pill counter, drug dispenser, counting machine, bottle filler or piece counter, a Kirby Lester device can be your ideal solution for exact counts.

Kirby Lester has applied its expertise in pharmacy automation and patented a line of high-speed machines for counting and bottle filling. Like their pharmacy-based counterparts, our industrial units are designed to fit on a tabletop, be simple to operate and fast. These units serve a wide variety of industries needing small- and mid-volume packaging and verification - without the high cost of fully automated counting systems.

Manual counting methods like tray-and-spatula, scales and roller boards are proven to be inaccurate and inefficient.

  • Pharmaceutical/supplement/vitamin manufacturers
  • Specialized pharmacies and clinics that frequently dispense from a small, set formulary
  • Bariatric clinics
  • Veterinary hospitals and clinics
  • Law enforcement organizations handling narcotics
