Fujitsu debuts two new A3 document scanners

Fujitsu has announced the availability in Australia and New Zealand of two new A3-capable document scanners: the fi-7700 and fi-7600.

The new models are able to capture documents up to A3 size in a wide variety of paper weights in one batch, saving time and cost for production-level scanning in a professional environment.

The fi-7700 model combines ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and flatbed functionality with the ability to simplify loading documents by adjusting the rotating ADF to suit the users’ office or workspace environment.

The fi-7700’s straight paper path allows for very thick materials to be processed, while the flatbed is suitable for scanning fragile or oversized documents like magazines.

The straight paper path assures reliable scanning of mixed batches, regardless of the condition and type of document. A one-touch change to non-separation mode allows for hassle-free scanning of folded or multi-layered documents.

Freely adjustable document side guides in the document feeder and effective stacker side guides minimise operator intervention before and after scanning.

The skew reducer improves the feeding performance and ensures that a single skewed sheet in a batch does not skew any following sheets. Paper protection functionality detects acoustic and document length irregularities, thus minimising the risk of document damage even for documents as thin as 20g/m2.

The fi-7600 model comes with dual fold-out operating panels to support left-to-right and right-to-left scanning scenarios. A wider variety of document qualities, materials, shapes and sizes can be scanned without special settings or operator interaction.

The fi-7700/ fi-7600 scanners achieve scanning speeds of 100ppm/200ipm (A4 landscape, colour, 200/300 dpi) and are optimised for centralised scanning of up to 30,000 documents per day. The compact size of the scanners allows for placement in production and department settings.

The scanners are designed for mixed batch capture application in the public sector, financial services and healthcare industries, as well as Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) service providers and scanning service bureaus.

Each model is supplied with PaperStream software for high clarity image processing, routine automation and document routing:

  • PaperStream Capture professionalises scanning routine automation. Patch code, barcode, matrix code and zonal OCR allow for routing and document augmentation on the fly.
  • PaperStream IP automatically produces high quality images for subsequent processing.

Peter Uher, General Manager of Fujitsu Products Group, Fujitsu Australia Limited said “By adding these new high-volume A3 model scanners to our current family of fi Series document scanners for professional use we can help our customers to be even more efficient in their digital transformation.”
