BPS® X9: Superior High Speed Quality Inspection for Print Works
To guarantee the highest possible banknote quality, print works need to check the quality of each freshly printed banknote. The BPS® X9 sets a new standard for Single Note Inspection for print works and is a record holder with a processing speed of 44 banknotes per second. The BPS® X9 also guarantees the highest reliability, efficiency, and accuracy.
BPS® X9 is the successor to the BPS® 2000 OBIS, which – with more than 140 systems installed in over 40 print works – is the global benchmark for performing quality inspection of freshly printed banknotes. The BPS® X9 boosts the processing speed to 44 banknotes per second achieving an effective throughput of more than 150,000 banknotes per hour which makes it the fastest processing system in the world. The clarity of its design and the thoughtful user interface ensure intuitive and efficient operations. It is the central component of the Banknote Finishing Solution. It can be easily integrated with automated cutting and packaging, thus providing a true end-to-end solution for fully automated banknote finishing, from sheet to parcel.
Benefits at a Glance
Up to 44 banknotes processed per second with an effective throughput of more than 150,000 banknotes per hour
Highest productivity due to optimized operating procedures, low maintenance requirements, and minimal service interruptions
At the core of the fully automated finishing solutions by connecting it to automated cutting and packaging solutions
Quality inspection based on best in class sensor suite NotaMaster®, the NotaScan® sensor families, and easy integration of 3rd party sensors
Highest security at all levels, e.g. it provides complete tracing of all processed banknotes together with the serial numbers and may be secured against unauthorized software and parameter changes
Manifold data views to improve efficiency and quality of the printing process and document the printing quality and its tolerances to the issuing central bank
From Sheet to Parcel – Fully Automated
The BPS® X9 can be directly connected to the CutLink X cutting system. This tailor-made combination receives the printed sheets and delivers maximum cutting accuracy of banknotes due to a feedback loop for cutting tolerances. The BPS® X9 checks each single banknote with a throughput of up to 150,000 banknotes p. hr. Notes with defects are shredded online while fit notes are stacked and pre-bundled. It is usually connected to the NotaPack® 10, generating shrink-wrapped banknote bundles and in addition it can connect to a second level packaging system for cardboard boxing or film packaging at the end of the process. This system yields a fully automated end to end finishing solution from sheet to parcel providing highest productivity and security.
Guaranteed Quality of Each Single Banknote
Sensors in the BPS® X9 like the NotaMaster® and NotaScan® sensor families are specifically designed to inspect the quality of freshly printed banknotes. During inspection, they check, record and evaluate the visible as well as machine-readable properties of the banknotes. Unacceptable printing flaws and excessive tolerances can be easily defined for each and every banknote design. A sensor calibration tool is available optionally and can be used to calibrate certain sensors on BPS® X9.
State of the Art Industrial Design
The design of the BPS® X9 supports its functionality at the highest level and has been recognized with an iF design award for machine design and its sophisticated user interface supporting intuitive operation.

Your Data Source to Optimize Production
BPS® X9 records quality data for each banknote and stores this data in a central data base. By analyzing this data with tools like LUNA, a printer can detect repetitive flaws in his printing process and improve the yield of the printing process.
Our Service for 24/7 Operation
To ensure optimum use of the BPS® X9, G+D Currency Technology offers trainings for operators as well as service technicians. A support hotline provides technical support. Moreover we offer maintenance contracts tailor-made for differing customer needs, with an optional remote service access supporting fast reaction time and minimized downtime.
