In previous articles, we wrote about the differences between the available cash degradation solutions (IBNS, or Intelligent Banknote Neutralisation Systems) for ATMs. In addition to the aforementioned differences, like the applied degradation liquid and the means of operation, the price of these solutions will also differ. How come? And what do you need to take into account when choosing a cash degradation solution?
IBNS use ink/dye, glue or a combination of the two. But how about the safety of these systems for e.g. the ATM servicing crew? That depends among others of the built in precautions to prevent misuse. To assess exactly how safe an IBNS is, you could ask four questions.
Rather than having different manufacturers trying their best to come up with just a piece of the puzzle that is ATM Security, we see the need for a total, integral concept. Irreversibly degrading the cash inside the ATM (no cash, no crime) is a great starting point, but we can do more to discourage criminals to attack ATMs.
Banknotes immediately lose their value, if you can’t pay with them. In previous articles, we wrote about the two available types of cash degradation and compared them according to two important critical success factors: ambiguity and reversibility. In this article, we zoom in on the need for an effective activation mechanism and the differences in the available options today.
All over the world, the number of explosive attacks on ATMs is increasing. The need for a solution is urgent. We are convinced that the gas attack Modus Operandi can only be eradicated if we remove the criminal’s motivation to rob an ATM; the availability of cash money inside an ATM. We need to degrade the cash; unambiguously and irreversibly.

The start of Security Essen 2018 was marked with a new Cash Security Innovation event at the Atlantic Conference Hotel. Banks, CIT companies and other Cash Handling industry stakeholders from all over the world made their appearance, presented their knowledge and shared their insight regarding the future of Cash Security.
To this day, ATMs are subject to attack on a daily basis, leading tot significant damage. Banks deploy far-reaching countermeasures that will cause criminals to perform increasingly heavier attacks, resulting in an ever escalating arms race between banks and criminals. In this article you can read how this arms race can be broken, by removing the expectation of a pay-day.
In September, Mactwin introduced GlueFusion, during the international trade fair Security Essen; world’s first revolutionary cash degradation method that employs glue, instead of ink.
