Fujitsu Frontech Releases New Compact Bill Recycling Unit: Slim, Large-Capacity "G60"

Tokyo, April 28, 2011 – Fujitsu Frontech Limited (hereinafter, FTEC) today released the compact "G60" Bill Recycling Unit (BRU), their slimmest BRU ever (160 mm). Adopting a method to vertically insert banknotes, the G60 has a compact profile yet still has a banknote capacity that accommodates up to 1,400 bills. It achieves high reliability with the validation technology of the FTEC "BV100" Bill Validator, also released today. The G60 also has compatibility with the FTEC "F53" Bill Dispensing Unit (BDU) which, with more than 60,000 units shipped, has a track record with SCO in the U.S. and ticket vending machines for metro lines in China, for example. FTEC is thus responding to worldwide replacement demand for compact bill recycling units.

April 28, 2011

In the past, FTEC did not have a small, high-performance bill (banknote) recycling unit and instead combined a separate banknote dispenser and banknote acceptor to form a banking machine, even though customers had asked FTEC for a single unit for banking, which was necessary for reasons such as space-saving needs and improving efficiency. Listening to their customers, FTEC has responded by developing their slimmest (160 mm) bill recycling unit (BRU), the compact G60.

Despite being compact, this BRU manages to accommodate banknotes with its large capacity and realize the same performance as an ATM. Additionally, with regard to installation, the G60 has compatibility with the FTEC F53 Bill Dispensing Unit (BDU), so an F53 unit is interchangeable with the G60 recycling unit without further mechanical design work on the device side. This is significant as the F53 has a track record, with more than 60,000 units shipped worldwide, of use in, for example, self-checkout (SCO) systems.

The G60 is a single unit capable of both dispensing and depositing banknotes, and its small size realizes miniaturization and design flexibility of G60-equipped devices (banking equipment). Moreover, by utilizing the bill validation technology of the BV100, the G60 complies with banknote authentication requirements worldwide, became the first in its class of recycling units to implement dispensing and deposit control by banknote serial number, and reinforces counterfeiting countermeasures. Furthering the validation, the G60 captures image data of banknotes and records the serial number of every single transacted banknote to make it easy to trace should trouble occur.

The demand for high-performance bill recycling units for payment systems and ticket vending machines is growing, and FTEC will be selling the G60 across a wide range of industry sectors.
