Scanners are valuable devices across a multitude of industries, from travel to retail. We integrate kiosk barcode scanners, kiosk QR code scanners and kiosk document scanners into our enclosures, depending on the use case. They can be fully integrated and retro-fitted into existing kiosk enclosures. Tablet scanner stands are transformative for improving efficiency across a wide variety of sectors.

Most regularly, scanners are used when scanning products on a self-service kiosk. However, a surge in technology and self-service has caused the integration of scanners in kiosks to be far more widespread across industry. Scanning barcodes or QR codes on a kiosk can now grant you access to a building, print the appropriate returns label at the post office, enter your details for Track & Trace, enrol contact details at an event or print your boarding pass at an airport. Kiosk scanners are not only versatile but hugely time saving for both businesses and customers.

Scanners in Industries


Scanning a barcode or QR code can allow a kiosk to book tickets or print pre-paid tickets when travelling at airports, train stations and other public transport. Additionally, passport scanners can be integrated for quick, secure and accurate access control at airports.

Visitor Management

QR codes and barcodes are the new ‘ticket’ and can allow entry at various events. Scanners can also manage socially distanced visitor management for any premises that needs to manage the footfall.


Retail was one of the first industries to fully adopt kiosks with integrated scanners. They’re widely used for self-service POS, but can also be used for Click & Collect, self-service returns and for stock management.

Public Service & Education

More and more online shops are now doing paperless returns and therefore issue a QR code to be scanned at the post office. Deploying a self-service kiosk scanner at post-offices or corner shops increases efficiency and revenue. Scanners in library or education settings enhance the environment


Check-in kiosks can be sped up for the user by the installation of a scanner. This can grab their details instantly rather than going through a manual process on a keyboard or on the touchscreen.

Events & Exhibitions

QR codes are perfect at exhibitions or events, not only for granting access but also for use during the event. This is especially prevalent at trade shows – business cards can quickly be scanned with details captured, food and beverages ordered and event communication shared.

Office Management

Kiosk scanners that are used for clocking in and out are ideal for time and attendance in offices. Temporary QR codes can also be created for visitors. Additionally, kiosks can be deployed for the scanning of documents, which can be a huge time saver in most office settings.

Leisure Centres & Gyms

Kiosk scanners can be integrated with entry systems, so gym members no long need to find a card to gain entry to the leisure centre, a code on their smartphone will do the job for them. This can also work for classes and different areas.

Casinos & Entertainment

Scanners can be used to print tickets or coupons at arrival of the entertainment complex. Scanners can also be used to open up a gambling or betting account on a kiosk.

More Add-on Devices


A touch screen kiosk with printer can be used in a wide range of settings. An iPad kiosk stand with printer or any touch screen kiosk with printer is hugely versatile for printing receipts, vouchers, postage stickers, tickets, photos and more. A computer kiosk with printer can print documents, whilst simple display kiosk printing is perfect for smaller tasks that can be made more efficient, such as visitor management entry tickets.


Some industries may require an iPad kiosk stand with keyboard. imageHOLDERS are proud of their innovative designs and the building of enclosures for a computer kiosk with keyboard and, even more so, enclosures that can house a tablet stand with keyboard. imageHOLDERS created a kiosk with keyboard specifically for the Microsoft Surface tablet, which the first in the world to support the tablets optional keyboard accessory. imageHOLDERS has secured the official ‘Designed for Surface’ approval, cementing our position as trusted partners of Microsoft.


The surge in self-service requires a kiosk with card reader. Our kiosk credit card reader enclosures house multiple different tablet or iPad chip and pin devices, allowing for efficient and safe purchases on self-service kiosks. These are ideal for retail, restaurants and hospitality.


There are an abundance of uses for a kiosk with camera. It can be used for digital signage with facial recognition, a temperature verification kiosk or for access control. A temperature kiosk is now the norm and is highly effective in assessing body temperature on the temperature check kiosk, using an infrared camera.


Biometrics are a form of identification which is traditionally used for security, such as border control and police profiling. However, as passwords and pin numbers become compromised, biometric identification has also started to replace commercial resources such as phone passwords and key fobs at work. A biometric kiosk could be a fingerprint kiosk or, by incorporating a facial recognition camera, a touchless kiosk allowing for a contactless check in. A touchless user interface is becoming rapidly more popular post-pandemic.

USB Hubs

From chip and pin to USB adapters, imageHOLDERS have forged relationships with adapter and hub manufacturers to ensure a complete business solution. We optimise a USB kiosk using our expertly developed USB-C hubs. Our USB-C Hubs are secure with a dual screw locking fitment, providing an enhanced, reliable interconnection.


Contactless covers a wide array of different applications. The most common technologies are NFC, RFID and Mifare. The products we integrate are compatible with NFC, RFID and Mifare applications. We are moving more towards contactless technology such as gesture and voice control.
