Mühlbauer’s Authenticity and Fitness Check for Used Coins: COIN INSPECT Flex

Mühlbauer’s coin inspection technology is based on almost 20 years of experience. The latest solution COIN INSPECT Flex offers different configurations and can exactly be adapted to the demanding requirements posed by the high-speed inspection of used circulation coins, which implies two major tasks: detection of fake coins and coin fitness check.

Different inspection methods are combined and their results are related to each other. Only this correlation enables a reliable assessment of the coin quality and a credible decision whether a coin is genuine and suitable for further circulation or not.

COIN INSPECT Flex employs mainly optical methods for inspecting the coin design including the edge area, checking the color, and determining diameter and thickness of the coin. Additionally, the material structure can be analyzed by verifying its electromagnetic properties of the coin.
