The World's Most Popular Mold Cycle Counter


A company’s injection molds are among its most valuable asset, and proper maintenance keeps tools profitable.

Progressive recognized this, and in 1994, developed the CounterView®, the industry’s first cycle counter, designed to accurately track mold usage and help plan for preventive maintenance before more costly problems arise throughout a tool’s life.

tested and proven

As the CounterView became a global industry standard, along came counterfeit copies which were failing in the field. Therefore, we decided to put the imitators to the test, and recorded failures in as few as 3,400 cycles, while Progressive’s consistently cycled to 3,000,000 without failure.

Progressive’s CounterView is tested and proven to outlast counterfeit and lookalike products. Click HERE to view testing data.
