Concept Development of a Coin Recycling Machine

Abstract
Today, many bank offices refuse to handle coins. The coins are heavy, dirty and
time consuming to administrate. It is required to automate the coin handling process
in order to make the customers able to independently handle their coin transactions.
There are already self service machines for depositing coins and for coin
withdrawal. A step to further optimize the coin handling is to use the deposited
coins for withdrawal. If the coins are recycled in the machine the coin handling
time is minimized.
The objective of this master’s thesis was to develop a concept for how a machine
for both withdrawal and deposit of coins could be designed. The deposited coins
should be recycled and available for withdrawal. The big issue of the task... (More)
Today, many bank offices refuse to handle coins. The coins are heavy, dirty and
time consuming to administrate. It is required to automate the coin handling process
in order to make the customers able to independently handle their coin transactions.
There are already self service machines for depositing coins and for coin
withdrawal. A step to further optimize the coin handling is to use the deposited
coins for withdrawal. If the coins are recycled in the machine the coin handling
time is minimized.
The objective of this master’s thesis was to develop a concept for how a machine
for both withdrawal and deposit of coins could be designed. The deposited coins
should be recycled and available for withdrawal. The big issue of the task is to
handle the logistics within the machine in a reliable and effective way.
During the project, different design concepts are generated and evaluated. The
evaluation is based on selection matrices and a prototype.
The result is a complete concept for how a Coin Recycling Machine could be designed.
The construction mostly consists of modules and parts from SCAN COIN’s
assortment. The machine interface is based on the interface of an already existing
machine called CDS 830. One conclusion of the thesis is that some functions or
parts are discerned as more problematic than others. The functions or parts that are
discerned as problematic are the withdrawal function and the coin conveyor. (Less)
