WideTEK® 48CL - Fastest Sheetfeed in 48 Inches

Wuppertal, Germany - March 6, 2018

Industrial quality production scanner running at top speeds. The WideTEK® 48CL-600 is the newest member of the CL series of wide format scanners designed by Image Access to offer industrial quality scanning without the high price tag normally associated with a scanner of this size for applications in architecture, surveying, reprography or media clipping.

The WideTEK® 48CL-600 has what it takes to run in a production environment 24/7, while still being the lowest priced scanner of this size on the market. At the full width of 48", it scans at 10" per second in full color. At 1200dpi resolution, the scanner still runs at 0,83 inches per second. The scanning speeds are tripled in greyscale modes but the speed can be limited to scan fragile, valuable documents. All of these speeds are guaranteed, due to the Scan2Net technology integrated in the scanner´s own built in 64 bit Linux PC and 16GB of memory.

"We are proud that the WideTEK® 48CL-600 is currently the fastest and least expensive 48 inch color CIS sheetfeed scanner on the market. Like all devices from Image Access, the WideTEK 48CL is also manufactured entirely at the company´s Wuppertal location. "Made in Germany" quality at a reasonable price is and remains our credo", says Image Access COO Rüdiger Klepsch.

Through reengineering and utilizing the most advanced CIS modules, the WideTEK 48CL is truly the fastest CIS scanner available. Document rotation is done on the fly, a scan of an E-sized / A0 document in landscape at 300 dpi in 24bit color takes less than 7 seconds to scan and another 1.5 seconds to crop & deskew, preview, cleanup, compress and store anywhere in the network. The WideTEK 48CL exceeds FADGI *** guidelines and complies with the ISO 19264-1 standard.

The WideTEK® 48CL offers
"Made in Germany" quality at an affordable price.
