If you only want to scan technical documents, choose a SmartLF SC Xpress wide format scanner. If you want the versatility to scan technical documents, artwork and photos, choose one of the SG scanners.

If your technical documents are dirty or in poor condition, we also recommend SmartWorks Pro software. This allows you to quickly and easily clean up CAD drawings or blueprints.

Scanning your technical documents using a SmartLF Xpress wide format scanner – key benefits

  • Sharp, accurate scans especially suited to technical documents like CAD drawings / blueprints.
  • Advanced paper transport and illumination systems mean that even folded CAD drawings / blueprints scan sharp and shadow free.
  • High 600 or 1200 dpi optical resolution – more than enough for scanning any technical document.
  • Choice of scanner widths up to 56″ (142.3 cm) – scan documents up to E+ and A0+ in size.
  • Ready for use within seconds of power on – no warm-up, no waiting. Switch off when not in use.
  • Fast mono and color scan speeds.
  • Low cost to buy, economic to run.
  • Upgradeable models: m (monochrome), c (color) and e (express color) – buy what you need when you need it and upgrade by email.
  • Simple to use SmartWorks EZ software included with the scanner lets you scan to PDF, TIFF or JPG formats and make copies of your documents on any Windows printer.

Scanning your technical documents using SmartWorks Pro software – key benefits

  • Interactive Intelligent Adaptive Thresholding cleans up your dirty CAD drawings and blueprints better and faster – you can set threshold values on the fly without the need for time-wasting prescans.
  • “Scan-it-once” philosophy – simply scan a document, check it and make any adjustments to the scan settings. There’s no need to rescan, giving you a huge workflow advantage. More information about SmartWorks Pro software
