AUBURN, Maine — KICTeam, the industry leader in the manufacture of cleaning cards, and TransAct Technologies, a global leader in cashless ticket printers for the gaming and lottery-based industries, today announce a joint development project to incorporate the use of Waffletechnology(TM) in a Cleaning Card System to maintain the Epic 950(R) Ticket Printer. In an effort to increase efficiency and lower maintenance costs, the new Cleaning Card System with Waffletechnology will enable gaming properties and retail outlets to effectively clean the Epic 950(R) Ticket Printers easily and quickly without opening the printer.

“TransAct Technologies will be introducing this new Cleaning Card System as part of an overall preventative maintenance program,” said Jim Stetson, TransAct Senior Vice President, “This product will offer TransAct Technologies Epic 950(R) Ticket Printer customers an excellent way to clean the device, helping to increase the products’ longevity and maintain the quality of the printed ticket. Further, we are pleased to provide our customers quick and convenient availability on our web store,”

“The development of Waffletechnology products has helped our OEM partners maintain and clean their technically-advanced equipment easily and quickly,” explained Debra Ross, Product Manager / OEM Business Development Worldwide, KICTeam. “Our JCM Cleaning System product and the relationship of TransAct Technologies with JCM, helped facilitate this new project. The initial Cleaning Card System prototypes for the TransAct Technologies Epic 950(R) Ticket Printers, leads us to believe that a product will be deliverable to the marketplace sometime in December. Our goal is to ensure optimization of the ticket printers’ performance for the Gaming and Lottery Industry.”

TransAct Technologies and KICTeam will be introducing this new Cleaning Card System during G2E in November at the Las Vegas Convention Center. TransAct Technologies will be presenting this product along with their Epic 950(R) Ticket Printers in a joint area with JCM-Global Booth # 1656.
