DESK CHEQUE BOOK PERSONALIZATION MACHINE
CBD 500 is a smart cheque book personalization machine designed for Bank branches that need to print a low volume of cheque books per day. It is very compact and easy to operate yet using the technology of its top descendant CBD 2000. Having two feeder bins it will prepare quickly a complete cheque book that can be stapled and bound manually by the operator. Ink-jet technology will assure high quality printing and a low cost maintenance.
The machine is loaded from the top where the user can get access directly to the feeding station composed by two compartments storing 500 checks and 100 covers/order forms.
After being fed, the sheets are transported to the printer station by use of belts reducing the jam rate to minimum. The feeder is manually adjustable for different paper thickness and occasional double feed are detected by a sensor and stored in a dedicated bin.
Printing station is composed by three 3 inkjet high resolution printheads (300 dpi) able to print QR code up to 1" size. The position is manually adjustable from 5 mm from the bottom of the cheques up to 85 mm.
Printed checks are then stored in the collection station where the booklet of a maximum 50 sheets plus covers is composed.
For security reason the machine is closed by a locked transparent cover to prevent access to unprinted checks by unauthorized persons.
CBD 0500 can be operated through terminal commands to be sent via serial RS232 over USB and therefore doesn't need any particular driver apart from the USB Windows driver. Applications can therefore send booklet composition sequences according to Rototype proprietary language. Booklet graphics can be designed with a free software tool; APIs for sending the booklet information to the printer are provided for free.
