NCR, Appleton agree to thermal paper licensing deal

Jan. 4, 2007 - NCR Corp. said that it has signed an agreement with Appleton to license NCR's simultaneous two-sided thermal-paper technology to Appleton.

The license gives Appleton the ability to make, use and sell two-sided thermal paper under NCR's two-sided thermal-paper intellectual property worldwide, Dayton, Ohio-based NCR said.

According to NCR, its patented two-sided printing technology reduces paper-roll receipt usage by as much as 50 percent and provides additional operational savings on freight, storage, disposal and roll changes.

Applications for two-sided thermal-receipt printing include point-of-sale, banking, event ticketing, lottery, self-service kiosks and more, NCR added.

The company said that it is offering commercially attractive licensing terms to other printer manufacturers and paper mills interested in its two-sided thermal-printing technology.

Appleton produces carbonless, thermal, security and performance packaging products and provides secure and specialized print services.
