Keep important files and pages available in the cloud or on memory cards with document scanners. Standalone sheet-fed models handle multiple pages without requiring a person to stand at the machine for extended periods. Flatbed options scan individual pages, handling the needs of smaller offices. Maximize space with all-in-one printers that include a scanner and copier, or go with large-format scanners for blueprints and posters.
Increase productivity and create high-quality files with color duplex scanners. These machines feature contact image sensor (CIS) technology that scans both sides of a page at the same time, reducing the need for multiple passes. The scanner captures individual pixels, creating sharp text and images in color, providing accurate digital copies of each sheet. Color scanners save documents and photos on the network, and many include memory card slots for saving files and sharing them with clients. These sheet-fed scanners include document trays and automatic feeders that handle multiple pages without requiring someone to insert each page. Color duplex scanners streamline the process and keep double-sided pages together in storage. Some models automatically detect pages that are upside down and rotate them for file accuracy.
The most common types of document scanners are flatbed models, which feature a glass surface area and a lid that closes to keep pages straight. These flatbed scanners feature a photocopier-style surface that scans individual pages. They accept letter- and legal-size pages, with many accommodating books and thicker files. Most all-in-one printers incorporate scanning features similar to those of traditional flatbed scanners. Some models also include faxing, reducing the need for standalone fax machines and copiers and maximizing space in smaller offices and home setups.
Specialty document scanners range from handheld to photo and business card options that meet a range of needs. A handheld model is a type of specialized scanner that lets users slide it over documents and images for copying and storing. This document scanner can travel easily for use away from the office. Smaller, pen-style scanners let users digitize specific sentences in a text. Use photo scanners designed specifically for pictures, film or slides and keep track of lab findings or preserve images. Business card scanners have a small footprint and manage account-related documents. These scanners accept business cards, IDs and insurance information, providing simple capture methods without typing. Desktop camera scanners take photos of books, documents, sales slips and even groupings of items and digitize them into JPEG and other image files. Some use USB ports for direct connection to PCs. Large-format document scanners feature a stand or desktop design that accommodates posters, architectural drawings, blueprints and other large pages. Users slide the pages into the rollers, which position and feed them through the scanning mechanism. Large-format models capture detailed scans of images and graphics for sharing online or that can be stored for future use.
