Questions to Ask When Evaluating Your Next Wide Format Scanner

March 21, 2018 - In today’s competitive environment, many equipment manufacturers love to compare competitors’ technical and mechanical specifications. While these specifications are always impressive, they do not measure the true productivity of a device or system. 

Many factors can impact the productivity of large format scanning, and machine speed is only a small part of it. Here are some factors that can turn the fastest mechanical device into the least productive device.

Operator efficiency:

Scanner connection:

Computer hardware:
Scanner software
Scanner hardware:

These are some of the more important considerations when comparing large format scanners, especially if the scanner is for production scanning or copying.
