SCM Marchant 616 Printing Calculator Advertisement
March, 1969


The SCM Marchant 616 is the first internally-developed printing electronic calculator from SCM. The earlier Cogito 566PR was an manufactured by Diehl in West Germany and sold/serviced by SCM in North America under an OEM agreement between SCM and Diehl. The 616 uses a printing mechanism that is made with all plastic moving components, limiting its long-term reliability, but significantly reducing the cost. The 616 utilizes small and medium-scale integrated circuit technology. The machine appears to have been introduced in the latter part of 1968.
