The Merkur Dispenser 100 is the proven banknote recycler in the market. There are over 65,000 units in daily operation. The Merkur Dispenser 100 was introduced to the German AWP market over six years ago. This extensive market experience coupled with the large number of units in operation makes this product stand out in this sector. The Merkur Dispenser 100 is a modular, intelligent banknote recycler. It has three dispensing units – thus can recycle three different denominations and each single one has a capacity of 34 notes. Note validity is not only checked and controlled upon note entry. Security is key – thus the note validity is also checked upon pay out. This gives operators the piece of mind that they have complete control of the information on notes both being paid in and out.
The Merkur Dispenser 100 offers four different note stackers of two differing note capacities (400 and 600). Customers can choose a stacker that is self-locking – in other words the stacker seals itself once it is removed so notes cannot be taken out unless the user has the key to the stacker. A choice of two banknote heads brings further choice to the market.
The Merkur Dispenser 100 originates from the Gauselmann Group which has not only been one of Europe’s most successful gaming machine manufacturers over more than fifty years but is also a major operator as well. It was Paul Gauselmann himself who foresaw the benefits of having a banknote recycler in AWPs. The Gauselmann Group developed the Merkur Dispenser 100 to perfectly fit the local requirements. The great success of the Merkur Dispenser 100 is testimony to the fact of how close the Gauselmann Group is to operator needs. Mr. Kai Buenger is responsible for international sales of the Merkur Dispenser 100. New market segments have been discovered and have grown to become of major importance, underlying the growth strategy of the group. One particular example is that the Merkur Dispenser 100 has become the preferred banknote recycler for change machine manufacturers in Italy.
The demand for the Merkur Dispenser 100 continues to rise. The reasons are clear – it has proven itself over six years in the market and the numbers sold speak for themselves. Furthermore, it has been developed and is manufactured in Germany – underlining the product quality. “Another major benefit is that we can recycle three denominations. Single or dual denomination often is not enough with the result that the recyclers empty the notes too quickly and have to be refilled more often”, explains Mr. Buenger. “Fitting the Merkur Dispenser means less service requirements, so enhancing machine uptime and so ensuring better machine profitability”.
The international team supporting the Merkur Dispenser 100 continues to grow. Alexander Moor has been appointed sales manager in this department. Mr. Moor is a native Russian who has been living in Germany since 1999. Having spent two years in Mexico, this means that Mr. Moor is fluent in three languages. “The whole team extends a warm welcome to Alexander”, notes Mr. Buenger. “Alexander is now supporting all Russian and Spanish speaking countries. We invite our customers here and all interested parties to contact Alexander directly”.

Kai Buenger has further exciting news. “We all know that the Merkur Dispenser 100 was originally developed for the German AWP market. Differing markets have differing requirements. Thus, I am pleased to announce that the Gauselmann Group is placing strong focus on the international expansion of the Merkur Dispenser 100. That means that we will soon be able to offer the Merkur Dispenser 100 in a whole world of varities and sizes. This will enable us to support all customers who wish to integrate banknote recycling into their machines, including AWPs, VLTs, change machines, parking machines, retail and payment machines. A world of opportunities awaits the Merkur Dispenser 100 as this proven, successful ‘made in Germany’ banknote recycler continues to be the preferred choice in the market”.
