InnoPrint - high quality, low cost alternative printing products
 
We are pleased to introduce InnoPrint Ltd. A subsidiary of Innovative Technology, Innoprint was formed in March 2013 with an aim to provide high quality, low cost alternative ticketing solutions. After extensive research and product development, InnoPrint are proud to offer a number of exciting ticketing products to the marketplace. 
2014 has seen InnoPrint launch their own product range consisting of barcode, coupon and ticket printers for the amusement and gaming market. Their current range includes two compact coupon printers and a high capacity flatbed ticket printer.
InnoPrint’s flagship product, a high capacity flatbed ticket printer [FBF-166] has a unique print mechanism that ensures tickets are fully printed before issue, reducing ticket wastage and the large ticket capacity reduces operator collection costs.
Also in InnoPrint’s arsenal is the CR-158 compact coupon printer, which is available with two different bezel options, to suit both the European and US markets. Both units boast fast print to present speed and free ticket template software for unlimited branding opportunities.
Development Director, Chris Robinson concluded, “InnoPrint is an offshoot business created to fill a gap in the market for high output, high quality printing technologies. The InnoPrint Team consists of Mechanical, Electronic and Software Engineers, as well as a dedicated Sales Team and we can offer the perfect solution for companies investigating ticketing systems across various applications. Our ticketing product range will be displayed on Innovative Technology’s stand at ICE N1-550. As a group we can now offer a full range of cash and ticketing validation products to customers worldwide. We look forward to bringing our quality, low cost alternative products to the industry".
 
New €20 release
 
The new €20 is the third banknote of the Europa series to be introduced after the €5 and €10. The ECB and the national central banks of the euro area will unveil the banknote and announce its exact issuance date on 24 February 2015. The Europa series is being introduced to further improve the integrity of euro banknotes and to keep ahead of counterfeiters. As with previous releases, the ECB is making the new banknote available to banknote equipment manufacturers well before it is issued to ensure tests and adaptations can be made to machines and devices.
