NEW LOW-VOLUME PRODUCTION SCANNER FROM BWE BELL + HOWELL, RICH WITH PRODUCTIVITY-ENHANCING FEATURES
May 25, 2005 Comments (0)
The new Truper 3200 brings exceptional speed and a high duty cycle to the low-volume production class for scanning color and black-and-white documents. Truper is the only scanner that comes packaged with Kofax's new VirtualReScan(R) (VRS) 4.0 Plus image enhancement software. In
addition, Truper includes a USB 2.0 cable for easy installation, a power cord, and a demonstration version of Pixel Translations' QuickScan(tm) Pro scanning software for document capture.
With a speed of 62 pages per minute and a daily duty cycle of 10,000 pages per day, Truper is ideal for document management in small to mid-volume applications. Truper also works as a complement to higher volume products in distributed scanning settings to capture document images and send them
to central processing and storage.
Truper's automatic document feeder (ADF) holds up to 200 pages and can handle documents up to 11.9" x 25" in size. For exception documents, such as older, fragile papers and data from bound documents, Truper offers a flatbed.
Best-of-Breed Technology Increases Scanning Productivity
Truper provides duplex (double-sided) scanning in full color, bitonal and grayscale, all in one model. Along with superior image quality and brightness, the VRS Plus software offers users Auto Color Detect, Auto Rotation and Blank-Page Deletion in one package.
"Auto Color Detect automatically senses color documents and scans them in color, even when mixed with black-and-white documents. There is no need to manually pre-sort or insert patch-code sheets between color and black-and-white documents, saving time and money in document preparation," said
Dan Creinin, product manager for Bwe Bell + Howell. "Auto Rotation automatically recognizes text on a document and reorients the scanned image. Transportation waybills, receipts and other documents can be easily read and processed by untrained operators."
Truper's Blank-Page Deletion feature eliminates the need to pre-sort documents into single-sided or double-sided batches. Truper also features Multi-Color Dropout, which automatically removes up to six colors in a single document to accommodate various forms processing requirements.
Truper's Ultrasonic Multifeed Detection and Ultrasonic Mulitfeed Recovery capabilities save considerable time when double-feeds occur. After the Ultrasonic Multifeed Detection feature reads a double-feed, the scanner operator simply removes the double-feed, realigns the document and
hits 'go' -- because of Ultrasonic Multifeed Recovery, unique to Truper through the VRS 4.0 Plus software, there's no need to rescan a batch.
"Truper is powerful enough to go it alone in an ambulatory care office, yet flexible enough to increase capacity for an insurance company's distributed scanning network or to accommodate overflow for a large bank," said Russell Hunt, president of Bwe Bell + Howell Scanners. "All its features work together seamlessly to improve scanning productivity, maintain batch integrity and reduce the total cost of scanning."
Truper supports industry standards, such as ImageControls, ISIS or TWAIN drivers, to interface with virtually any scanning application.
Truper Reduces Total Cost of Scanning
The Truper scanner has several features that reduce the total cost of scanning. These features include user-replaceable rollers, user-cleanable paper paths and lamps that last the life of the scanner.
According to Creinin, "Truper reduces the total cost of scanning. The user-replaceable parts eliminate service calls for ongoing maintenance, reducing the scanner's ongoing operational costs. A dock worker or office administrator can easily operate the scanner with minimal interruption to their daily job duties."
Available from Bwe Bell + Howell value-added resellers, the Truper 3200 is available in the United States at a list price of $8,995 and includes VRS 4.0 Plus software. Truper also is available in Europe, and it will be available in China later this year.
