Attacks against ATMs with solid explosives are becoming ever more common.
The ATM naturally explodes causing damage to the building however the protection of the cassettes remains in position, preventing the banknotes from being stolen.
The cassette protection, tested in designated laboratories and on Lem premises with regards to the resistance of the ATM which was subjected to an explosion with a mixture of oxygen/acetylene gas, had never before been tested using solid explosives.
This test, which cannot be carried out in the Lem laboratories or “bunker”, was instead carried out directly in the “field”, demonstrating how the design and construction of the Lem cassette protection has provided excellent results thanks to the materials and mechanical devices used, as well as the solidity of the closure.
The photos below clearly show what happened after the explosion.
