Cash Matters – Now More than Ever

The covid-19 pandemic acted as an accelerant to all things digital – including payments. It is too early to tell what the impact on cash has been in various parts of the world. Some indicators are available, however, which Cash Matters will present. Following the status quo, what are the most important messages for the mint community now when it comes to cash?

Andrea Nitsche is Chair of Cash Matters, a pro-cash movement by the International Currency Association (ICA). She holds an M.A. in Liberal Arts and worked in various industries, both in corporations and associations, always in communications with a focus on media relations, advocacy and crisis communication. She used to live in Canada, teaching at McMaster, as well as in Berlin and Brussels, representing German energy companies. Currently, she is Director Communications at G+D Currency Technology and lives in Munich.

Latest features for Die production

Latest features for die production from LANG. Easier, faster, functional extension for your workflow with the latest 64bit CAD & design software. Functionality enhancements for better perforations on the laser and milling machines.

New possibilities for your old engraving systems to get dies in higher surface quality and reduce production time.

Joachim Steidel started in production area at LANG. In 1995 he switched to the Application Department with focus on the mint industry. In, 2003 he switched to the sales department for the minting and graphic industries, but continued closely supporting the applications area. Since 2017, he has been working as Sales Director for LANG’s entire range of production.

Julian Schmidt, Sales Engineer at LANG, has switched from Production and Project Management at some injection molding company to the Sales Department of the Lang GmbH and works mainly for Laser and 3-axis-machining in interaction with international customers.

Cost or quality, is it too much to ask for both?

With the acceleration of the changes due to the COVID, the future of Mint Industry will be challenging, so we want to help our customers to lead the change.

If we want to overcome the challenges ahead, we will have to improve costs and quality at each stage of the production process.

In the TOYOTA PRODUCTION SYSTEM, production is stopped at each defect. And it’s easy to see how not producing scrap is the best way to improve costs and quality.

Following the TOYOTA PRODUCTION SYSTEM principles, the Visicoin 200 is our first smaller and more affordable of the systems that will allow to control each stage of the production process.

Eric Sanquer is Sales Manager at PRODITEC, he has been working as a field engineer in different sectors such as textile industry, food packaging, automotive, digital printing, metal extrusion, pharmaceutical industry and of course coin industry. He has been working with PRODITEC since 2002.

Phase 3 – Inline Inspection

The combination of production processes goes far beyond the simple coining process.

Schuler’s latest coining center combined with integrated inspection systems, including the advantages which Industry 4.0 offers, ensures the supply of coins with proven quality, just in time and at the highest possible efficiency.

Wolfgang Schumann graduated in Mechanical Engineering in Aachen. Since 2002 he has been working in the Design Department of the Schuler Group in Goeppingen with responsibility for the development of highspeed presses. As Head of Product Development he was responsible, besides other industries, for the research and development of new products for the Minting Industry. Today, as Product Manager, he takes the responsibility for the further development of Schuler Minting equipment, process development, market and competition analyses.
