Scanning technology has never been more powerful. The latest scanners can digitize hundreds of pages in minutes, rather than hours. As scanning speed has increased, so have accuracy and versatility. New software flags potential jams or misaligned pages before they become a problem. Advanced scanners can tackle thicker documents such as ID cards and pamphlets. Offices that make heavy use of their scanners should upgrade to a fi-8000 series scanner designed to effortlessly tackle a demanding workflow.
Flatbed scanners with a subpar document feeder make for slower scanning and wasted time. The most advanced new models in the 8000 series are small but powerful scanners that can fit on a desk, similar to the much-loved Fujitsu fi-7160. A powerful scanner can sit in the middle of a busy office rather than a separate copy room for better workflow.
New scanners can analyze the images they’re creating in real time with image monitoring technology. Image monitoring flags folds and other irregularities, keeping an eye on the flow of paper through the scanner. This means users no longer have to re-scan the occasional batch of documents due to poor alignment. The original documents stay protected from scanner jams.
Automatic Image Clarity Enhancements
Fujitsu’s proprietary Clear Image Capture software is built into the fi-8170. This image monitoring software automatically improves the look of scanned documents.
Crisper lines make text and small numbers easy to read. The scanner can also remove unsightly shadows or smudges on the original document for a perfect result. Color matching technology helps colors stay consistent throughout a batch so that important color-coded information remains legible.
The best office technology does its job effortlessly, disappearing into a smooth workflow. With a full suite of image monitoring software, an advanced scanner can seamlessly and consistently produce accurate images of scanned documents. Stop fussing over and cleaning up scanned images to save energy for productivity.
Since top-of-the-line scanners can speed through hundreds of pages in a few minutes, their feed machinery must work diligently to avoid multi-feed errors. These errors occur when document pages aren’t separated properly and go through the scanner together. This can cause jams or missed pages in the finished batch.
Sensors in the feeding mechanism of the fi-8170 can detect when multiple pages are traveling through the scanner at once. The mechanism can also help separate pages in large batches. Small improvements in feeding translate to fewer errors and unprecedented scanning speeds.
Ultimately, the greatest advantage of a high-end scanner is raw speed. The fi-8170 can scan up to 70 pages per minute on both the front and back sides.
Many industries utilize paper documents that are hundreds of pages long. A few examples of offices that can benefit from a high-speed scanner include:
- Medical offices
- Accounting firms
- Law firms
- Architecture studios
The fi-8170 is also a perfect choice for anyone who wants powerful technology to make scanning quick and easy. Most of the advanced features are behind the scenes, allowing simple one-touch operation similar to the Scansnap-ix 1400. For the smoothest scanning experience, upgrade to an innovative new model.
