Omnivend finds kiosk printing solution

OmniVend, a supplier and operator of a network of electronic vending systems, has developed a unique system that allows multiple products to be ‘vended’ (sold by unattended kiosk).  Products that can be sold by this method include mobile phone top-up, international call credit, mobile phone content (games/ring tones/logos/ text alerts), redeemable gift vouchers and coupons, cinema/concert tickets, travel tickets, bill pay and cash collection and advertising media content.
The machine accepts cash and prints a voucher that is then redeemed to activate the product. For printing, the system incorporates two TUP992 printers from leading international printer manufacturer, Star Micronics.
Supplied by DED, the TUP992 is a two-colour kiosk printer capable of output at a fast 150mm per second and is designed to accommodate either 15cm or 25cm paper rolls, and in a range of thicknesses. For additional flexibility, it has an automatic paper loading facility with a ‘lift and tilt’ mechanism.
Fiona Dowd, Commercial Director, OmniVend commented: “In an environment where reliability and high performance are paramount, the TUP992 from Star Micronics has proved to be the ideal print solution.”
