WideTEK® 36ART-600 wide format CCD art scanner

WideTEK 36 ART

WideTEK® 36 ART enables contact free scanning of works of art like oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, charcoal and pastel drawings, mixed media collages and antique works of art; at 600dpi in formats up to 914 x 1524mm / 36 x 60 inches.

The new WideTEK® 36 ART-600 was designed for archiving and reproduction of works of art. Museums can digitize their own collection for sale as a print or for publication on the internet or in catalogs. Reprography specialists can offer fine art digitization as a service, which has already proven to be a lucrative market.

Original artwork is moved under the CCD camera elements completely contact free, protecting the art from any damage and making it possible to scan a painting that is still wet, as long as it is framed or the sides are dry enough to place the artwork on the scanning bed.

In cooperation with large format printers from HP, Canon and EPSON, the WideTEK® 36 ART-600 brings the basis for professional art reproduction. Native printer drivers installed on the scanner make color accuracy on the resulting image even higher.

WideTEK® 36ART Compliance

Image Access scanners are environmentally friendly, comply to the highest security standards and do not interfere with other devices. We have also made sure that no harmful radiation in the form of electromagnetic emission and UV or infrared light exists. Because these kinds of scanners are heavy production machines with inherent risks to the operator, no one should operate a scanner from a vendor who cannot provide at least an IEC/UL 60950 safety report.

Image Access scanners conform to the many national and international standards which are listed below. Our scanners have been tested and certified by independent laboratories and we can also provide test reports of each standard on paper upon request.

The WideTEK 36ART conforms to the following standards:
