Genus are the UK distributor for Roth & Weber (ROWE) large format reprographic scanners. Here we look at one example of their usage in a demanding environment.
ASM Datacore Ltd is a longstanding customer of Genus and has over 30 years of experience in document handling, document management, microfilming and scanning. ASM have scanned, microfilmed and digitised hundreds of millions of documents, for thousands of clients, across all industry sectors and departments such as government, medical, legal, financial, human resources and more.
ASM Datacore Ltd was recently awarded a project to scan over 100,000 engineering drawings of various sizes. Faced with a large volume of digitisation and a demanding timeframe, ASM turned to the ROWE scanners for assistance.
ROWE’s large format range encompasses scanners, printers, MFP systems and folding and cutting machines. The ROWE Scan comes in two models – the 450i and the 650i. The 450i has the capability of scanning anything up to 44” wide whilst the 650i can scan media up to 30mm thick and up to 60” in width.
Having undertaken some initial proof of concept testing, ASM invested in two ROWE 450i wide format scanners. ASM were also tasked with the digitisation of numerous drawings that were wider than 44 inches. Such was the efficiency of the 450i scanners, ASM did not hesitate to invest in a further purchase of a ROWE 650i, allowing them to scan drawings up to 60” wide.
Alistair Ray of ASM Datacore commented…. “Having won such a sizeable, large format scanning project it was essential we had equipment that was robust, fast and offered a high quality image. The ROWE scanners offer all of these and more, and our throughput is hugely up when compared to our previous generation of large format scanners. The double lighting system on the 650i was of particular assistance in scanning without shadows and removing fold lines on some of the poorer quality large format drawings.
We have in the past purchased a number of pieces of equipment from Genus which made me comfortable as I know the high level of customer support they offer”
