WideTEK® 12 Flatbed Scanner

Professional Color Flatbed Scanner

The WideTEK 12-650 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.

The WideTEK® 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 Anything

The WideTEK® 12 can scan nearly anything: from business cards to diagrams in A3 format, books, newspapers, maps, construction drawings, bound documents and more. The new scratch resistant, non-reflective borderless glass platen prevents bent edges on source documents.

The 3D scanning mode captures the 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

The WideTEK® 12-650 brings you an even higher return on investment with the addition of the new WT12-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 12-650. If you are a service provider, this gives you even more ways to generate revenues with your WideTEK 12.

In the medical sector, operators can scan negatives, radiography, cardio plaques and larger paper documents in black and white, color or grayscale as required. The WideTEK 12 is compact, only (44cm, 17") wide, so it will fit in any doctor´s office or hospital floor.

There are many film scanners available on the market for small image formats and even medium sized images, but in the large format range, film scanners are very rare and/or prohibitively expensive. WideTEK 12-650 goes far beyond just film scanning and does it an a surprisingly affordable price.

Municipalities, cadastral offices, oil companies, GIS services and other government agencies use the WideTEK 12-650 to digitize and archive a number of different types of documents. But the WideTEK 12 is also ideal for photographers, galleries, advertising agencies and graphic artists to present and preserve their work in a digital format.
