Kodak Adds MICR to Versamark
Aimed at transactional and commercial printers manufacturing cheques and other security documents, Kodak is adding Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) capabilities to its Kodak Versamark VL2000/2200 and VL4000/4200 series machines.
According to Kodak, its application of MICR printing is “different from other solutions on the market” because the company uses a MICR accessory rather than replacing the standard black ink. Given the machines, this inline MICR printing can be produced at speeds ranging from 246 feet per minute (fpm) to 492 fpm.
Kodak states its MICR solution will be commercially available in the first half of 2010.
