VEGA Touch. Simple, reliable, and compact while managing up to 32 machines.
We are proud to present VEGA Touch, the payment central that integrates the best technologies currently available in a series of state-of-art technical solutions designed to make your work easier, more productive, and secure. Based on a latest generation touch screen, all the features are positioned exactly as you would expect to find them. The careful finish includes even the smallest details and the front panel can be customized, even with the customer’s graphics. Nothing is left to chance.
Rugged construction and perfect organization
All the devices and wiring are arranged according to a well thought out logic to simplify normal operation and maintenance. The components are easily removable using quick connectors. The machine body has been completely redesigned applying innovative methods, including numerous parts formed using 3D printing. Manufactured entirely in Italy, VEGA Touch is a “battleship” ready to withstand the toughest challenges.
MARK design 7” touch screen
We could never make do with any old commercial touch screen. Our touch display was custom designed to strict MARK specifications: 5 mm vandal-proof glass, extra-high luminosity display, anti UV and fingerprint treatment, with optical bonding to reduce unwanted reflections. In addition to all this we also integrated a proximity sensor that warns the payment central when someone approaches, regulating the display luminosity according to ambient conditions. The result is exactly what we were looking for: a technological gem that will not fail to satisfy all your requirements.
Simplicity: an endearing virtue
Rational lay-out of controls, careful ergonomic design, easy to read messages, clear and concise instructions, obvious and intuitive options: VEGA Touch was designed and constructed to match the real needs of users, providing a relaxing time in your launderette and encouraging them to return. Is this the perfect payment central? That is hard to say, but we are certainly on the right path.

Free to pay
Coins, banknotes, credit cards, smartphones, fidelity cards: the payment central can manage any form of payment and dispense change in both coins and banknotes (paid-in coins and banknotes are reused for dispensing change) … and you can even print out a receipt at the end. The change tray is spacious and illuminated.
Promote customer loyalty with QR Codes
VEGA Touch is not just an extremely reliable, high performance payment central, it can also become a very valuable tool for promoting customer loyalty. By reading QR codes generated by the “QR Code Manager”, you can award:
– Bonus discounts at a predefined rate following a minimum purchase and usable within a deadline in single or multiple transactions.
– A specific free service. The coupon can be used once within a deadline for a specific service.
– Free service. The coupon can be used once within a deadline for any service chosen by the user.
If it is impossible to dispense change, the payment central prints a receipt with QR Code, which the customer can use for future purchases or to collect the change at a later date, as they prefer.
“QR Code Manager”, included as standard, is PC software that generates QR codes for customized bonuses. Promoting customer loyalty has never been easier!
“CashBox Manager”, included as standard, is computer software for easy programming of the payment central from a PC. The program settings are simply transferred to the machine using a normal USB memory stick.
