Representatives from Martin Automatic recently attended the operational debut of Alpha P-7, being touted as the "newest and most advanced manufacturing technology for instant lottery games," at Scientific Games’ Global Lottery Center of Excellence north of Atlanta.
Alpha P-7 is designed to manufacture instant games at 1,000 feet per minute and utilizes green technology, recyclable paper, water-based inks and energy efficiency. The manufacturing technology was custom-designed by Scientific Games engineers and Tresu Royse Inc., a global provider of uniquely engineered, advanced technology solutions. Continuous roll feed is supplied by non-stop splicing and rewinding provided by Martin Automatic.
The newest component of the company’s overall global manufacturing technology, Alpha P-7 expands Scientific Games’ entire instant lottery game operations. According to Jim Kennedy, executive vice president and chief executive, Lottery Group, Scientific Games, “Our instant game design and manufacturing is currently leading the way with more than 71% of the best-selling instant games in the U.S.We’re also advancing the instant game category in Europe, Asia and emerging markets in Latin America. We view the new Alpha P-7 technology as an investment in our lottery customers, their retailers, beneficiaries and players.”
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal congratulated Scientific Games on the addition of the new instant lottery game manufacturing technology and noted the company’s contribution to his state’s economic infrastructure and workforce. The additional manufacturing volume created by Alpha P-7 is projected to add approximately 40 manufacturing jobs to the State of Georgia’s workforce in 2014.
