A new automatic banknotes batch validation system
IN-CORE Systèmes is known for being a visionary company, always searching for new solutions to the continuously evolving industry. That is why the company is proud to announce their latest inspection solution: an automatic banknotes batch validation system.
What are the benefits of this single banknote inspection system ?
Today, only 0,01% of the final banknotes batch is inspected by human eye for compliance with Central Bank specifications. This procedure takes time, human resources and is not 100% free of errors. The automatic batch validation system improves the existing limitations and intends to revolutionize the final validation of banknotes.
The system uses camera based solutions of high resolution and multi spectral analysis. Main benefits are:
- Modularity, by allowing the integration of quality control of new security features.
- Higher speed, by reducing the inspection time from a week to a few hours.
- Reliability, by allowing to increase the number of banknotes to be inspected and therefore ensuring a higher statistical representativeness.
Single banknote inspection system to quality control of final banknotes
The system was developed in response to the Central Bank’s requirements for quality control of final banknotes. The automatic batch validation system is designed for printers in order to validate the manufactured banknotes before delivery, and for central banks to validate the banknotes before they are put into circulation.
