Teller Cash Recycler

The AST9000 is an all-new cassette-based, cash-in cash-out, teller cash recycler (TCR) from CIMA. Designed with high performance in mind for retail environments/bank branches where cash processing volumes are high. The AST9000 ensures security, reliability and significantly faster cash processing times to deliver major operational efficiencies and productivity benefits.

AST9000 accepts, authenticates, stores and dispenses banknotes through a conveniently located high capacity input/output/reject slot. Recycling and storage are accomplished via a series of highly configurable cassettes.

AST9000 is equipped with five (5) scalable cash boxes / cassettes with a range of flexible options and features:

  • Single denomination recycling cassette
  • Dual denomination recycling cassette
  • Deposit only cassette
  • Self-auditing cassette

Banknote detection is handled by a validator which is equipped with the most advanced recognition and authentication technologies. The validator can be configured to perform authenticity detection only or combined to incorporate banknote fitness sorting as well. Both scenarios comply with the regulations of all the major global central banks.

AST9000’s compact size and footprint with an aesthetically pleasing look and ideal ergonomics make it an excellent solution for the retail back office environment or for bank branches.
