Desktop document scanners easily fit on an office worker’s desktop and can typically scan 20-30 pages per minute. They are small, quick, intelligently designed scanning devices that are ideal for small offices and individual use. Note that desktop scanners are not the same type of document scanners that you would use at home for occasional scanning.
Departmental document scanners are designed to scan a few thousand pages per day and are usually set up as dedicated scanning stations for one or more departments. These are not multi-functional printers that you would normally find in a typical office. Departmental scanners are specialized machines designed to help streamline document processes in busy office environments.
Production document scanners are used in high-volume, high-speed centralized scanning environments. For example, this type of document scanners is often used for daily processing of huge volumes of insurance claims, patient files, incoming mail, loan applications, etc. Production scanners can tackle the most demanding high-volume requirements.
Network document scanners are used to scan documents directly to the network without having to use a PC. These document scanners are used to scan to applications, e-mail, fax servers, network folders, FTP sites, printers, flash drives, etc. With the help of network scanners you can get information quickly and easily into your workflow systems.
Large format document scanners are used to scan wide format documents that cannot be scanned using regular scanning devices. Examples of large or wide format documents include maps, blueprints, engineering or technical drawings, photographic images, architectural renderings, etc.
Book document scanners are used to scan books, magazines, and other bound documents. Book scanners are optimized to make the book or bound document scanning process as easy, simple and time efficient as possible and are widely used by libraries, museums and archives.
Microform scanners are used to scan various types of microforms, such as microfilm or michrofiche. Microfilm consists of reduced scale photographic images of printed or other graphic material and microfiche is a transparent film card that stores printed information in miniature form.
X-ray film scanners are used for digitizing X-ray films, such as patient/medical X-rays. Hospitals and radiology offices find X-ray films extremely expensive to store and retrieve. This makes for a good business case to convert X-ray films to digital format.
