NCR is making its patented two-sided thermal (2ST) printing technology standard on all NCR SelfServ 20- and 30-series ATMs for North America.
With intelligent deposit, check images are printed on the ATM receipt to validate the deposit. However, receipts with check images printed on them can often be lengthy, requiring additional service visiting by the financial institution to replace paper rolls, and becoming cumbersome for the consumers. With its 2ST printing technology, NCR machines will print to both sides of the receipt, simultaneously. The company says this results in 45 percent less paper. ATMs with 2ST printers also can print intelligent deposit receipts up to 73 percent faster than competing technology, NCR claims.
All North American financial institutions ordering NCR SelfServ 20- or 30-series ATMs will receive integrated 2ST printers based on network support. Certifications for this technology among the major networks are scheduled, and most should be complete by the end of 2009 for U.S. APTRA Edge v3.01.
