In 1950, GLORY developed Japan's first coin counters for Japan Mint. In the years since, we have continued to produce money handling machines and systems to meet the exacting reliability demands of financial institutions and other money handling businesses around the world. In the process we have refined our currency recognition and identification technology to a very high level. The uses for this technology now extend beyond coins and banknotes to include character and image processing. Our ongoing research has enabled us to greatly improve accuracy and expand the scope of possible applications to diverse fields.
Banknote Identification Technology
This technology checks and rapidly identifies banknotes. Sensors inspect banknotes from various angles to determine denominations, verify authenticity, and find damaged or unfit banknotes.
Coin Image Identification Technology
A coin is identified using techniques to recognize its diameter, thickness, and individual design. This technology allows the fast and efficient sorting of coins. Used in conjunction with our CIS*, our coin identification systems can process up to 1,800 coins per minute.
