Opening angle

Adjustable opening angles for book cradles and glass plates are basic requirements for professional digitization systems.

Conservation digitization

The digitization of valuable or sensitive books and bound documents, which for conservation reasons may only be digitized with a small opening angle, requires a reduction of the opening angle to less than 180°. For this purpose, book2net has developed special V-scanners of various sizes.

High-Performance Digitization

To ensure a smooth workflow, it is especially important in the field of mass digitization to keep scanning and processing times as short as possible while offering the user maximum ease of use. For this reason, book2net’s professional systems are equipped with automatic height adjustment and pressure control, which allows the travel paths of the book cradle or the glass plate unit to be individually adapted to the originals.

Book2net offers a variety of book scanners with reduced adjustable opening angle of the book rocker and glass plate, such as our Cobra A1/A2, Falcon, Lizard and Dragon models.
