Book Scanners

The Newest Dimension of Book Scanning is Here!

The SMA SCAN MASTER is the most versatile book scanner available worldwide. The entire SMA SCAN MASTER family is now the first product line in the world that can be upgraded to become a fully robotic, page turning book scanner.

Resetting the Standard

SMA is proud to introduce the SMA SCAN MASTER, the most comprehensive line of high-end book scanners on the market. Your large format book scanning needs are met with a range of book scanners varying from A2+ to A0+. The SCAN MASTER produces TRUE Optical resolutions of up to 600 x 1200 dpi in bi-tonal, grey scale, and color in very little time. All SMA scanners achieve a geometrical accuracy of <0.1%.

What is V3D Scanning?

Using principles based on multiple lighting angles, V3D technology increases the depth of field significantly offering perfect reproductions of nearly any structured surface. This unique approach raises the outstanding image quality of SMA scanners to the next level.

The Need for Speed

SMA book scanners were designed for applications where superior resolution and speed is critical. With a scan speed of 20 seconds (E-size, 600 dpi TRUE optical), the SCAN MASTER is the fastest scanner of its kind. In addition, the utilized gigabit Ethernet interface guarantees the highest possible image transfer rates.

Master of All

All sizes are equipped with a highly intelligent, self-adjusting motorized book cradle designed specifically with the safety of the original being the highest priority. An adjustable book cradle option can be added to accommodate books that cannot be opened to a full 180 degrees. In addition, the book cradles are able to easily join together to create a level scanning surface for all flat and structured originals. The unique pull out book cradle allows for easy initial placement of heavy and cumbersome originals.

Bring it to Light

The SCAN MASTER family utilizes LED lighting completely free of any ultraviolet or infrared radiation. This guarantees harmless and uniform illumination. Like all SMA scanners, the SCAN MASTER truly operates independent of ambient light, and can be utilized in all lighting environments. Bright sunlight or intense ceiling light does not interfere in the scanning process, eliminating costly dark room enhancements. More importantly, the contained lighting system creates no impact on the user’s eyes at any time.

German Manufacturing

SMA e-Document GmbH is the worldwide leader of research and development in the large format sector. Our German engineered machines were designed specifically with the safety and integrity of the original in mind. Accurate historical preservation, eco sustainability, and product longevity are the reasons why SMA continues to lead the way. Robust manufacturing coupled with state-of-the-art technology ensures the SCAN MASTER is capable of meeting today’s standards, as well as the inevitable increased scanning requirements of tomorrow.
