WideTEK 12 Flatbed Scanner

Professional Color Flatbed Scanner

The WideTEK 12 is available for applications where A3+ is large enough but fast scanning speed and high optical resolution is required. The scanner needs less than three seconds to scan the largest format of 12.5 x 18.5 inches in normal mode at 300 dpi and only 12 seconds in 3D mode at 600 dpi, twice as fast as the closest competition.

WideTEK 12 delivers high resolution color, black and white or grayscale images in jpeg, tiff, pdf and most other standard image output formats. It combines production ready design and uniquely compact dimensions in a new class of professional but affordable scanners.

The new scratch resistant, non-reflective glass plate has been expanded to reach the edges of the scanner, making it 100% protective of the documents laid on it. No more bent or folded edges on your source documents.

Hi-Res scans in most file formats.

The WideTEK extra-large flatbed is extremely fast and delivers high resolution color, black and white, or greyscale images in jpeg, tiff, pdf and most other standard image formats. It combines production-ready design and uniquely compact dimensions in a new class of professional, affordable flatbed scanners.

Scan nearly any type of object

The WideTEK 12 can scan nearly anything that fits on the glass: from business cards to diagrams, books, newspapers, maps, construction drawings, bound documents and more. The new scratch resistant, non-reflective borderless glass platen prevents bent edges on source documents.

3D scanning image enhancement
3d scanning

WT12 uses CCD cameras that can capture the "depth" on an image that CIS camera based flatbeds cannot. This becomes important when scanning anything with a texture or depth other than perfectly flat.

The 3D scanning mode captures the depth and texture of surfaces so perfectly that the scan on a screen looks like the real thing. The WideTEK 12 has two LED lamps, twice as many as the competition. With their new diffusors, these lamps produce an extremely homogeneous illumination which eliminates all unwanted shadows caused by folds, wrinkles and other distortions of the scanned object.

Optional Backlight Unit for X-rays, film, negatives and more
backlight scan samples

The WideTEK 12 brings you an even higher return on investment with the addition of the new WT25-BACKLIGHT option for scanning transparent material of all kinds, like X-rays, glass negatives, 35mm microfilm aperture cards, cutout stencils, sepias and film.

The optional backlight unit replaces the standard scanner lid. It is easily assembled and users can scan with or without the backlight, depending on the source material requirements, by simply switching the light on or off. The unit can be purchased separately for customers who already own a WideTEK 12.

7" Touch Screen
7 inch touchscreen close-up

The 7 inch color WVGA (wide VGA) touchscreen provides access to all functions directly from the scanner. It is very easy to access and is operator-friendly because it is located right at the center of the scanner, exactly where the operator stands or sits.

  • PC and touchscreen inside, no hidden cost
  • Fast Gigabit network connection
  • True standalone solution
Scan Direct to USB 3
USB Close-up

One USB 3.0 port in the front of the device 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.
