WideTEK 42 – Large Format Color Scanner for Documents Up to 42 Inches (1070 mm) Wide

The innovative wide format CCD scanner WideTEK 42 for documents up to 42 inches wide (1070 mm) is setting new standards in performance and quality.

This very fast but astonishingly quiet 42“ color scanner combines user-friendliness, production-ready design and compact dimensions in a new class of scanners.

State of the art illumination using bright white LEDs guarantees long lifetime and best scan results at a very low noise level in spite of the high speed.

The cutting edge camera technology, consisting of a dust-protected, hermetically sealed camera box holding CCD systems using a patented stitching procedure, delivers an resolution of 1200 dpi.

The user operates the scanner either with a standard internet browser or alternatively, via the built-in touchscreen. A monitor directly connected to the scanner can be used for image control or to modify the scan parameters, without a client PC. Using the touchscreen display, up to 30 different password protected jobs can be defined and stored. The jobs contain preconfigured settings such as scan parameters or directories on the network drives.

The integrated walk up scanning software makes the scanner a truly shared device. One click of the mouse is enough to either print the scan, send it to any directory in the network or via email, to upload it to the FTP server, or to save it to the USB memory device. Simply walk up, scan and store or send the image, all through the use of the touchscreen.

Gentle Scanning of Historical and Fragile Documents

WideTEK scanners scan historical and fragile documents particularly gently thanks to spring-loaded ball bearings in the document transport mechanism.

Special transport rollers with individually spring loaded ball bearing pairs serving as pressure points ensure the best possible, gentle document transport. This allows a maximum document thickness of 3 mm. A new weight-balanced back plate allows users to adjust the strength with which the documents are lifted to the scan plane.

Automatic document size recognition allows operators to pass sensitive documents through the middle of the scan area, protecting document edges from any damage.

The exceptionally high scanning speed, dust-protected and encapsulated optical components and the absence of consumables characterize this highly efficient production-ready device. With a life expectancy of over one million scans, the WideTEK 42 redefines the price/performance ratio in the wide format scanner market.
