In order to ensure a true-to-scale, distortion-free high-quality scanning of bound originals, a flat surface of the original is necessary. Professional systems therefore have adjustable or self-adjusting book cradles that automatically compensate for the difference in height between the halves of the original during page turning.
Book2net systems therefore offer book cradles with self-adjusting technology or individually controllable support plates, depending on the requirements.
In order to scan books of different thicknesses gently and efficiently, even with glass plates, professional systems have a height adjustment system for the glass plate that allows the pressure and travel paths to be set precisely to the book thickness.
This is used in particular with semi-robotic high-performance scanners such as the book2net Cobra, Flash, Mosquito, Hornet and Dragon.
