Robust design & reliable performance


The book2net Flash A1+ was specially developed for use in the mass digitization of large-format, bulky or particularly heavy originals such as magazine volumes.

The mass digitization of large-format books and documents is associated with a high throughput volume. This requires high productivity on the one hand, but also the greatest possible relief for the user at the workstation on the other.

For this reason, we have placed particular emphasis on streamlining the workflow when developing the book2net Flash.
