Cummins Allison Multi-Pocket Sorter Revolutionizes High-Speed Currency Sorting for Gaming Properties

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Handling large quantities of cash and tickets is a fact of life for casino operations, but how a casino chooses to deal with this daily task can make a difference in efficiency and effectiveness. The JetScan iFX® i400 multi-pocket sorter from Cummins Allison, the leading innovator and provider of coin, cheque and currency handling solutions, helps gaming operations increase currency processing efficiencies due to its high-speed, compact size and flexible configurations.

“The JetScan iFX i400 opens up the possibilities for gaming properties where space is a premium”

The JetScan iFX i400 utilizes breakthrough imaging technology that provides outstanding read rates while processing currency at up to 1,000 notes per minute, resulting in higher throughput at a 39 percent faster speed than the closest competitive unit.

"The JetScan iFX i400 opens up the possibilities for gaming properties where space is a premium," said Harry Patrinos, Canadian managing director at Cummins Allison. "Gaming properties can quickly process currency in a single pass, whether in cages, count rooms or employee banks. Even those who might process moderate amounts of cash such as retailers, vending companies and transit firms can gain high-speed productivity in a small space at an affordable price."

The JetScan iFX i400 is the most flexible and user-configurable multi-pocket sorter on the market. From a base unit of three pockets, additional 2-pocket modules can be added to create 5-pocket, 7-pocket or 9-pocket systems, now or expandable in the future. The unique design can create up to 9 pockets in a space-saving vertical configuration, effectively providing a high-volume, multi-pocket sorter in a footprint barely larger than a desktop sorter.

Flexibility is a hallmark of the JetScan iFX i400, from pocket configuration to user-customizable operating software to accommodate workflows or different processing operations. Operating modes or pocket configurations can be changed with the touch of a button using an intuitive, touch-screen display.

The JetScan iFX i400 can also easily process polymer-based Canadian notes and utilizes static dissipating components to address the most common concern with notes incorporating polymer – static. Cummins Allison worked closely with the Bank of Canada during the design of the new currency to ensure that its equipment would process the new notes quickly, accurately and problem-free.

The entire family of JetScan iFX products will be on display at Cummins Allison’s booth, #1008, during the Canadian Gaming Business Summit from June 17 to 19. Attendees are encouraged to see, first-hand, how the JetScan iFX solutions can deliver efficiency throughout a gaming property through unique features such as, advanced counterfeit detection, the ability to capture serial numbers from every note for tracking and mixed note processing speeds.
