The Amano CP5000 replaces the CP3000 non-totaling consecutive spacing time clock. The CP3000 replaced the Cincinnati Clipper, which was a large, top-loading mechanical punch clock, produced from 1958 until 1991. In 1993, Amano Time Corporation purchased Cincinnati Time Recorder. Amano realized there was, and remains, a huge market for a self-aligning, non-totaling time clock. They set out to develop a replacement.
The CP3000 first came out with optical sensors. Same appearance, 80% of the same parts as the CP5000. But the printer had a difficult time aligning properly on the card. Amano found an engineer in Argentina, and moved him to USA. He went through all of Amano's mechanical and electromechanical clocks, and solve all their issues. The CP3000 was replaced by the CP5000. It uses inexpensive C3000 and C3000-2 (two-sided) paper time cards. It is an extremely reliable, basic time clock. Most of these are in manufacturing environments. As simple as the card looks, it is actually very complex. Look at the 5 narrow horizontal bars to the left of every printed line. That's the key to it's success. It also reads the green bars on the card. That's how it knows where to print on the card. He took a good idea, good engineering, and made it great. I have never met a slacker at Amano. Great company, great people.
You will not regret spending the extra money on this machine.
