Leading gaming operators in North America have specified its GEN3 Evolution printers in more than 50,000 electronic gaming machines since production began in late 2012, according to Glendale, Calif.-based FutureLogic, the printer manufacturer and a leading developer of innovative ticket printing and couponing solutions.
The demand for the GEN3 Evolution printer in its first six months is over 400 percent greater than the pace set by the GEN2 Universal printer in 2006.
“We look ahead to continued success with the GEN3 Evolution printer as operators seek to take advantage of FutureLogic's industry-leading technology,” said Nick Micalizzi, FutureLogic’s vice president of sales and marketing, North America, in a prepared statement. “In order to benefit from the GEN3 Evolution’s superior printing, promotional couponing capabilities, and advanced feature set, operators should request the GEN3 Evolution printer for all existing and new gaming machine purchases.”
The GEN3 Evolution printer is equipped with the industry’s largest standard paper capacity of 450 tickets, saving operators up to 30 refills or $300 per printer annually. Further reducing costs, FutureLogic printers eliminate paper waste by taking the ticket stack down to the last ticket. Operators can easily update firmware in a flash, by simply connecting a pre-loaded thumb drive to a printer while it’s still in the slot machine, yielding a significantly reduced down time for each and every slot machine on the casino floor.
Moreover, at eight inches per second, the GEN3 Evolution printer is also one of the fastest printers in gaming, printing and presenting a ticket/coupon in less than one second. Designed with promotional couponing in mind, the GEN3 Evolution printer offers an optional on-board promotional system module that creates separate and secure processing environments for both TITO and promotional couponing. This optional module also makes precision grayscale printing a possibility through an advance temperature control technology, yielding the highest resolution output for printing eye-catching promotional coupons.
