WideTEK 36 ART Features

A wide format scanner designed specifically for fine art scanning

The new WideTEK® 36ART-600 was designed for archiving and reproduction of works of art. Museums can digitize their own collection for sale as a print or for publication on the internet or in catalogs. Reprography specialists can offer fine art digitization as a service, which has already proven to be a lucrative market.

Original artwork is moved under the CCD camera elements completely contact free, protecting the art from any damage and making it possible to scan a painting that is still wet, as long as it is framed or the sides are dry enough to place the artwork on the scanning bed.

Fine ART Scanning

The WideTEK® 36ART-600 enables contact free scanning of works of art like oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, mixed media collages and antique works of art, with or without frames, gently and in high resolution.

With its patent pending laser focusing, the WideTEK 36ART captures all surface textures, from the finest stroke of the brush to gouache painting techniques. Originals are scanned with up to 600 x 600 dpi optical resolution and ICC profiles can be easily used with the scanner to guarantee truly correct colors in the scanned image.

Objects being scanned are driven fully automatically under the CCD scan lines, without the surface of the objects coming into contact with the scanner. Due to this scanning technique, the WideTEK® 36ART digitizes surfaces up to 4 inches high, whereby the scan objects can be up to 8 inches in total. A framed work of art can be scanned directly without taking it out of the frame first. A painting can be scanned even if it is are still wet, as long as it is framed or the sides are dry enough to place the artwork on the scanning bed. Cool UVand IR-free LED illumination also protects valuable art from color distortion or damage due to excessive exposure to light. Optionally, a scan table extension of 27.6" is possible which allows originals up to a length of (87.6 inches) to be scanned. A special laser focus helps the user to set the optimal position of the scan head.

15 inch screen close-up

WideTEK® 36 Art Scanner has a 15" HD Touch Screen for optimal viewing.

A USB 3.0 is available on the front of the scanner (below the monitor) to allow for easy walk up and scan to USB drives.

Below the HD Touch Screen is a 10" viewport window (not shown) that allows the operator to view the document as it passes under the scanner CCD cameras.
