Versatile Book Cradle

Designed for Large Books
V1A motorized cradle close up

The motorized glass plate is ideal for scanning in flat mode with very thick books. The glass plate applies the ideal amount of pressure to the source material without damaging it, assisting in flattening the curve of the book fold.

27 inch touchscreen close-up

A large 27" 4K preview screen for alignment and focus. A 21" Full HD multitouch monitor allows the operator to control image quality and make some modifications on the fly.

The Book Cradle

The book cradle needs no motors. Because the book cradle is fixed, it can support any book imaginable weighing up to 30kg or 65lbs. The book cradle plates can be separated to accommodate books with spines up to 20cm / 8" widths. A flexible fabric bridges the gap between the individual plates, allowing it to provide optimal support for damaged spines.

Bookeye V1A Book Scanner

Before a new book is scanned, the lift motor lowers the glass plate onto the book until the desired pressure is reached. The pressure is measured highly accurately, and it can be up to 10Kg / 22lbs under operator control. Once the book´s thickness is programmed into the lift mechanics, the scanner only needs to open and close the scanning glass to allow for book page flipping. The borderless glass plate opens automatically after each scan to the user defined angle. The speed at which the glass plate opens and closes is also user adjustable.

When the glass plate is completely open, the operator has the option to work manually with almost no force required. The glass plate stays put in every position and the pressure exerted on the book is manually defined by the operator. When the stop button on the right side of the keyboard is activated, all motors stop immediately. The operation can later be resumed after the disruption is removed. All motor operations are available via ScanWizard as well as via the six buttons on the keyboard at the front of the scanner. When the stop button on the right side of the keyboard is activated, all motors stop immediately. The operation can later be resumed after the disruption is removed.
