Traditional self-checkout, created for the future

The SLIM Balance self-checkout is a state-of-the-art self-checkout system designed for modern retail environments. It features a sleek and modern design that blends seamlessly into any store, while offering customers a fast, efficient, and user-friendly checkout experience.


The SLIM Balance can be used to either configure a slender and futuristic self-checkout or a traditional, sturdy-looking self-checkout while maintaining the same recognizable aesthetic. Using a core consisting of a bi-optic scanner housing with a curved worktop, which enhances the product's self-scanning performance and functions as a recognizable design characteristic, the SLIM Balance offers a modular design for independent hardware integration. Many product configurations are possible without changing the core design and function of the checkout, making integration or changing parts of the unit fast and easy.


Some additional features are already integrated into the SLIM Balance, such as a front and top-mounted camera for AI-theft prevention, security scales, cash management and LED signage, making the SLIM Balance a very versatile self-checkout that can cover everything from standard self-scanning with cash payment to AI theft prevention in a fully automated self-checkout experience.
