Handwheels can also be equipped with indicators. Mechanical indicators (counter) are shaft driven measuring devices. Each indicator incorporates a geared number wheel set.
These devices regulate and position variable-speed drives, distance between rollers, gate widths, valves, and other equipment controlled by rotary or screw motion.
Numbers change along the reading line as the actuating shaft on which the instrument is mounted rotates clockwise or counterclockwise.
Bearings can be added for smoother motion and control between the shaft and the handwheel.
Bearings help to stabilize the shaft and provide the operator with added control and stability.
