WideTEK 36 DS Scanner

36" Wide Format Scanner for Double Sided Scanning


WideTEK 36 DS Scanner

WideTEK® 36" DS Double Sided Scanner

For scanning both sides of large print items

WideTEK® 36DS - the world´s first wide format duplex scanner for digitization of two sided printed documents up to 36 inches (915 mm) in width. At a resolution of 300 dpi the scanner needs only 2.5 seconds to scan the front and back sides of a newspaper page in a single pass through the scanner.

The idea of double sided scanning in one production step primarily means less production effort: The document no longer needs to be flipped over and scanned again on the other side. That makes the scanner an ideal companion for press clipping, archiving and library services.


WideTEK 36 DS Features

Double Sided Scanning in One Step.

The scanner features two camera boxes, both consisting of three CCD systems, integrated into the upper and lower part of the device. The WideTEK® 36DS captures both sides of the newspaper at the same time. After scanning, software separates the scanned document into four single images; capturing the left and right half of the front and back of the newspaper - everything in one single step.

The scanner is equipped with two processor units. This allows an extremely fast data throughput. The patented stitching procedure merges the images of the cameras seamlessly together. The scanner resolution of 1200 dpi guarantees brilliant scan results.

Compact Design - Double the Scanning Power

The mechanical construction of the WideTEK® 36DS is also a highlight. The more extensive mechanics and additional camera and light units were integrated into the device without dramatically enlarging its dimensions. The duplex scanner is only 13 centimeters larger than the compact WideTEK® 36. The complete camera optical system is integrated in two dust-free sealed housings. Once optimally adjusted, all components are protected against external influences and require no maintenance.

Special transport rollers, with individually spring loaded ball bearing pairs serving as pressure points; ensure the best possible gentle document transport. WideTEK® 36DS digitizes even historical and fragile documents without damage to the source document.

The user operates the scanner either with a standard internet browser via PC 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. In addition, the Scan2Pad Application can allow the user to use an iPad or Tablet to control the scanner. 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 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® 36 redefines the price/performance ratio in the wide format scanner market.

State of the Art Illumination

State of the art illumination using bright white LEDs guarantees long lifetime and a low cost of ownership, since there are practically no consumables necessary over the life of the product. Cutting edge camera technology, with a dust-protected, fully sealed camera box holding CCD systems that use a patented stitching procedure, delivers up to 1200 dpi scanner resolution.

  • True standalone solution
Scan Direct to USB 3
USB Close-up

One USB 3.0 port in the front of the device (next to screen) allows the user to plug in a USB storage device, scan the source document to the USB device and walk away - without the need for a connected PC - ideal for every self-service environment.

The paper guide consists of only one piece which includes the scanning bed, scanning area and the exit path. There are no edges or catches which could cause a paper jam. The suface is textured for trouble free transport and the stainless steel makes for an anti-static surface that's long lasting too.
