Mail Insertion Machine Driven By Atari ST


Recommended Posts

I worked for a bank in the 90s. They had these really complicated machines that pulled in standard paper statements, folded them, counted the checks that were supposed to be in them and then insert the checks and the statements in an envelope and seal it and meter it and if the check count was wrong (based on reading a bar code on the statement) reject the item down a different track for manual processing.

 

This thing was run by an Atari (1040 or 520) ST with the name of the company over where the Atari logo would normally be.

 

Does anyone have any information or pictures of this?

 

Thank you.

Atari Corp did a bunch of custom STs for OEM sales. There was a popular one with a built-in CD-ROM that was used by auto parts stores and independent repair shops here in the US up until the 2000s. No, I don't have pics of it.
