Counter Solutions card reader

Counter Solutions are at the forefront of the product design of cashless payment terminals for commercial and educational premises. They asked Crucible for help with the design of a touch screen terminal that would use a modular approach to enable different payment methods to be used. We developed a base and set of modular top mouldings that could be fitted with a variety of screens, card readers and contact-less sensors.

Services delivered:

  • Initial technical review to establish the different modes of use
  • Review of technical options for different screens, payment methods, etc
  • Concept design of a range of alternative options
  • Technical design of the chosen option, including all internal parts
  • Optimisation of the designs for moulding to maximise quality
  • Delivery of a detailed package of production data

"Crucible delivered a flexible solution for our card reader that has allowed us to use the same product in several ways, including contactless and cashless vending. We have been very pleased with the final result, which has stood the test of time."
