Document scanners are generally sheetfed scanners that are designed for productivity in order to scan the highest possible throughput of documents at high speed. They are essentially structured like a fax machine, but nowadays they work with additional functions such as grayscale, color recognition, feed control, etc.
The most obvious disadvantage of the sheetfed scanner is that it only processes single pages (front and back). Document scanners therefore score particularly well when it comes to the mass digitization of high-volume stacks of documents consisting of loose pages. However, bound originals cannot be digitized with this type of scanner. In addition, sheetfed scanners usually require the documents to be in good condition, since the originals are exposed to greater stress than with contactless scanning by planetary scanners operating with incident light. In addition, when feeding smooth documents, such as photos, there are unpleasant edge distortions.
With the SCAMIG series, book2net offers document scanners in the high-end area, which have unique features such as sensory feed and flow control, slow-down option, paper-friendly tape transport, gentle LED lighting and maximum color fidelity in accordance with the ISO 19264-1 standard. This makes it possible to digitize even sensitive templates and documents of various sizes, such as archive material, gently and efficiently at the same time.
With the combination of our document scanner SCAMIG 210 with various models of our book2net book scanners, we also offer our customers a uniquely variable and productive hybrid scanning system with shared user software.
