Height compensation

Book cradle

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.


Glass plate

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.
