Moreover the EPIC 4870 comes with V3D technology, a new scanning technology which allows users to scan many different types of originals. It offers the capability of digitizing structured surfaces such as wood, rubber, plastic, fabrics, carpet, marble, glass and many more types of material. Finally, light reflecting items such as coins, seals and metal prints can be captured at the highest quality. The V3D technology presents new opportunities as it can be applied to materials outside the normal archive and library world.
Operating the EPIC 4870 is easy and straight forward. The object table can be removed and rolled around freely.
V3D stands for VISUAL 3D. It is a newly designed scanning technology that produces results that look like 3D.
Optical resolution of 600 ppi over the entire scanning range
Operating the EPIC 4870 is easy and straight forward. The object table can be removed and rolled around freely. This comes in handy in particular when the original to be scanned is large and/or heavy. Simply roll the table to the object, placed it on the table, roll the table back to the scanner and plug it in. Now you can hit the scan button and the rest of the process is fully automatic. The optical scanning unit moves downwards until the optimal position is reached. A laser grid system constantly monitors the surface of the original and stops the camers once it has reached its scanning position. All SMA scanners are equipped with a special LED light illuminator that does not produce any ultraviolet or infrared radiation. Harmless and uniform illumination is guaranteed. The illuminator of all SMA scanners is located inside the scan head and is simply moved across the original. As a result all SMA scanners can be operated independent from ambient light and do not irritate the operator's eyes.
