QubicaAMF Worldwide, the leading manufacturer of bowling and amusement products, is proud to announce the release of the new XLi EDGE Pinspotter.  The significant advancements introduced with this pinspotter are the patented EDGE Performance Lift, a new Pin Distributor Cam and the EDGE Video Training Tool. Backed by extensive research, the XLi EDGE is designed to make business easier for proprietors, technicians and customers by solving the most prevalent market problems around pinspotters including: staff turnover and training, increasing operating costs of older machines, rising safety concerns and improving the customer experience.

With its exclusive features, the XLi EDGE is the most cost effective pinspotter to operate so proprietors have more money to market their business or add to their bottom line. The patented EDGE Performance Lift and Distributor Cam have revolutionized how pins are handled in the pinspotter.  The result is the best Frames Per Stop (FPS) performance in the industry so bowling centers can operate with fewer pin chasers.  Parts costs are kept low because the XLi EDGE has fewer wear parts and there are no surfaces in the pin handling path that can damage pins. With the Safety First Ball Detector, the pinspotter will shut down if a person enters the machine from the lane, protecting staff and customers against accidental injury, resulting in increased safety and reduced liability.

“We are very excited about the introduction of the XLi EDGE, ” says Neil Pennington, Product Manager, Performance Equipment for QubicaAMF Worldwide. “It is our most advanced pinspotter ever and the only pinspotter designed to make the bowling business easier, so centers can be more successful.”

The XLi EDGE is the easiest and safest pinspotter for technicians to learn, operate and maintain. The technician-friendly benefits include greater accessibility for maintenance thanks to a very open and modular layout, a design that has fewer adjustments than any other pinspotter, and the exclusive EDGE Video Training Tool that makes learning how to maintain the machine easy.

The XLi EDGE can help centers deliver a better customer experience because it is the quietest pinspotter and with its exclusive Gripper ball return, fastest strike cycle and unmatched reliability customers are not kept waiting for the pinspotter to set pins or for their ball to be returned. Also, when used in conjunction with QubicaAMF scoring and management systems, if there is ever an interruption in play, customers are kept informed on the scoring monitor as it is being resolved.

Additionally, QubicaAMF introduces the SmartGuard Safety System for all XLi EDGE pinspotters sold in the European Union. The SmartGuard Safety System fully complies with all applicable European Union safety directives, giving proprietors in the European Union peace of mind.  With the SmartGuard Safety System pinspotter compliance is made easy. It is the only pinspotter safety system where technicians can resolve the most common pinspotter issues without machine shut-down that would interrupt bowler play. SmartGuard allows technicians unobstructed, safe access on top of the machines to walk and work. SmartGuard is available as an option on XLi EDGE pinspotters sold outside the European Union and also as an upgrade for existing 82-70 and 82-90XL pinspotter installations.
