Mustek Large Format A3 Scanners

Mustek A3 Scanners

Mustek Scanners and the Digital Age

The world has become digital. Business, art, engineering, science, and literature now exist, spread, and flourish in digital format. Electronic records, digital photos, digital copies of research papers, and eBooks are now how your message, ideas, and transactions are seen, read, and received.

The physical aspects of your work and hobbies should not be disregarded, though. Whether you need to send digital copies of your scrap architectural drawings, share paintings you’ve made online, or offer fans copies of your handwritten draft, scanners are necessary to connect the physical elements of your work with the digital needs you have.

Mustek USA now offers large format A3 scanners for your larger digital needs. Here are just some of their benefits and features.

 

What the A3 Scanners of Mustek Have in Common?

Mustek’s A3 scanners feature easy-touch buttons for scanning, PDF conversion, and access to the panel settings. The large A3-size flatbeds and the expandable lids makes it easy to scan thick bound books and large documents.

Create digital copies of your documents with true 48-bit color scanning. The bundled software allows you to create text files of the digital document easily with the optical character recognition (OCR) technology.

Mustek’s A3 scanners also feature batch scanning, providing you with the benefit of scanning several parts of your document separately but simultaneously, and allowing you to set separate settings for each part. This is especially useful when scanning several photos or small documents in one scan.

Large Format Scanners and Their Uses

large format scanners

The most common scanners being sold in the market are good for the paper sizes they were designed for. But if you needed to scan larger documents of larger sizes, you’d either have to go about scanning two halves of the document and then manipulate the resulting two files into one whole image or document or purchase large format scanners.

Of course there are entire industries that rely on large paper, documents, and images. Engineering designs, architects, artists, and old photograph and document restorers would have a difficult life if they had to resort to combining pieces of the scanned images.

Thankfully large format scanners resolve this dilemma.

Architects

large format scannersArchitects create drawings for all of their plans, and storing those drawings properly is crucial.
While the paper sizes vary greatly (from the Arch A’s 9 in x 12 in to the Arch E’s 36 in x 48 in), large format scanners make the process of scanning these large and wide documents much simpler. (Of course, the more often you use a wider sized paper, the more economic it would be to purchase a scanner size suitable for it.)

If you rely mostly on Arch A and B-sized paper, then Mustek’s A3 scanners would be the best choice and offer the most suitable size for your work.

Engineers

large format scannersStandard US sizes for engineering drawing paper also come in a wide range, from the ANSI A’s 8.5 x 11 in to the ANSI E’s 34 x 44 in. Large format scanners can also make a huge difference in efficiency when it comes to the scanning and saving of digital copies of these drawings.

And if your company requires constant and frequent scanning of ANSI A and B sized documents, Mustek’s large A3 scanners can handle those needs perfectly.

Artists

large format scannersArtwork today deserves and needs to be saved digitally. And not all artwork comes in sizes that fit the common household digital scanner.
Large scanners with suitable resolutions provide the best solutions for saving digital copies of artwork beyond the typical letter-sized (A4) piece of art. For artwork within the A3-sized range (11.7 x 16.5 in), Mustek offers a perfect selection in terms of resolution and scanning speed.

Historians

large format scannersCenturies old documents, paintings, and maps require high performance scanners that provide excellent resolution for proper digital restoration and study. These pieces of history, if they are large in size, require large format scanners that scan the whole piece once, rather than scanning segments only to patch it up again digitally.
