Snapshot -- Kiosk Industry History

Blast from the past: We were doing some research on the kiosk industry (specifically awards over the years at Kioskcom (& free pass)) and noticed a lot of old historical news has been lost (ie no longer indexed). We went ahead and pulled old news indexes and have them here so that they are available (if only in indexed form).

And for reference if you haven't made plans then you should. KIOSKCOM is coming up in April in Las Vegas at the Mandelay Bay.. This year looks to be a major turning point for the entire self-service industry and the best place to learn about it and see it is at KIOSKCOM.

Widely recognized as "best-of-breed" devices, Swecoin kiosk printers are valued for their small footprint and high reliability for unattended receipt, ticket, and label printing. Swecoin invented the looping presenter mechanism, a standard feature in all receipt printers.

This prevents kiosk visitors from pulling on the paper during printing, the most common source of paper jams in kiosk printing.
