The ultimate 2D + 3D surface scanner for the art reproduction and decor industries



Resolutions up
to 2000 ppi


Precision Color Accuracy


Capture in 2D & 3D


Multiple light settings and angles

Perfect for All Uses

The CRUSE Synchron Table Scanner has been the absolute industry standard for years and offers the ultimate solution for digitally detecting materials for wood floors, furniture design, ceramic tiles and laminates, wallpaper, and textiles in the design and decoration industry.

For high-quality scans that both preserve the original textures and contain maximum color accuracy, which requires extensive lighting options, nothing can compete with a CRUSE Synchron Table Scanner.

We are constantly developing the Synchron Table Scanner series to meet the unique requirements of the industry and equipping it with new, innovative functions. The high-resolution CMOS sensor scans in the highest possible quality. It guarantees maximum sharpness and excellent synchronicity, even with large templates. The perfect color management and consistent illumination over the entire scanning range make the Synchron Table Scanner a high-end scanner for the highest demands. The well-known and proven CRUSE scanning technology has been used for years in art reproduction and in the high-quality digitization of valuable documents in archives, cadastral offices, libraries and museums.

Digital service providers also use our scanners in various sizes to offer their customers the best possible scan quality on the market.

Synchron Table Scanner 4.0 Features

Variable Resolution

The vertically movable camera head enables variable optical scan resolutions up to 2000 ppi. The closer the camera head gets to the original, the higher the resolution. The moving lens in the camera head automatically takes a position for maximum sharpness in the scanned result.

Variable Texture Effect

Different horizontal positions of the lamps make reproducing the texture effects possible.

Variable Reproduction Angle

The horizontal movement of the sensor allows a realistic viewing angle from different positions. This makes even the smallest differences on the surface and gloss effects visible

Light Quality and Color Accuracy

Many factors influence color reproduction, including the interplay of LED spectral distribution, optics, the quality of the built-in lens, and camera noise. All these factors must be carefully planned and coordinated.

All CRUSE scanners are equipped with high-quality components whose interplay guarantees consistent illumination of the originals and exact color reproduction on a wide variety of printing systems. With the CRUSE color management and the printer distribution software, you get a complete package for reproducing your scans at the highest level.

Vacuum Table

CRUSE Synchron Table scanners can be equipped with a suction table at the factory. This function helps achieve improved scanning results for non-planned templates.

Additional magnetic strips help flatten the templates.

High Resolution Kit

With the High Resolution Kit, even the smallest details cannot hide. An additional lens mounted on a turntable ensures significantly higher optical resolutions. This increases the maximum standard resolution from 1000 ppi to 2000 ppi. It also allows extreme magnification without loss of quality.

Security System

Protect your scanner and valuable templates with the new security system. The system constantly checks the distances between the lamps and the originals during the scanning process. If your valuable document gets too close to the lamps, the security system stops scanning immediately and prevents collisions with the LED lamps, damage to the scanner, and damage to the original.

Light Box

With the Light Box option, transmitted light templates such as slides or films can be scanned.

Synchron Table with Book Cradle

This special scanner with a book cradle enables gentle digitization of valuable books, plans, and documents

The Synchron Table with an integrated book cradle can be used for the gentle digitization of books and other valuable templates, such as old maps and plans, historical documents, large-format templates from cadastral and surveying methods, and precious documents. 

The automatic book cradle controls the contact pressure of the template against the glass, guaranteeing little to no stress on sensitive originals. The two also motor-driven accountants are automatically shut down for turning over the original to its other side.

The Synchron Table can also be operated without a book cradle thanks to the additional template table, making it a full-fledged scanner for all areas of use.

Technical Equipment

• 15K CMOS line sensor

• Resolution up to 2000 ppi possible

• Template table with vacuum function

• Regulation of suction force and magnetic strips

• Loadable up to 330 lbs

• Maximum object height: 3.9 inches or more

• Automatic light correction program 

• Different light modes: left + right, texture effect, light deflector, Rear Light

• Open book templates up to A0+ and 19.7 inches book thickness

Synchron Table Scanner 4.0 Light Settings & Effects

Left + Right

The equal lighting on the left and right sides perfectly illuminates the original. Since textures in the original cast no shadow on the surface, it produces a flat look.

Texture Effect

The one-sided illumination (left or right) creates shadows and shaded effects, which reveals textures. The scan has a three-dimensional look.

Variable Texture Effect

The texture effect can be enhanced or reduced by adjusting the position of the lamps accordingly. This allows the resulting scan of the textures to be changed.

Light Deflector

For light deflector modes, the light is additionally deflected by 35° in one direction. Combined with the vertical and horizontal textures, the diagonal illumination makes the original even more visible.

Rear Light

The Rear Light LED option adds a temperature controlled LED light source that creates a strong 3D effect in the scan results. The flat light brings out horizontal textures in the original through shadows and thus creates a unique look.


Synchron Table Scanner 4.0 Color Management


The color management of the CRUSE scanners, which was developed in 2010 and continuously improved since then, consists of two components: the CRUSE Professional Profile software and a specially developed profiling target (CRUSE Professional Target). This target consists of more than 800 color fields of different materials (common targets for scanner calibration usually consist of 96 or fewer color fields).

Based on our highly specialized software, we chose from more than 20,000 spectrally measured color samples collected in a database. The chosen color samples enable the scanner to cover the largest possible color range for any type of material, therefore achieving the highest possible color accuracy.

“Experiments were performed to analyze the color accuracy of five camera systems used for museum image-archiving applications […] Only the [experimental] Sinar and CRUSE systems produced acceptable results, systems optimized for archival imaging […]”

Analysis of Color Management Default Camera Profiles for Museum Imaging Applications

from Roy S. Berns, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Stanley Smith, J. Paul Getty Museum (USA)

Each CRUSE Professional Target is manually produced and spectrally measured for accuracy. This profiling target is not available for purchase, but a one-time calibration of the CRUSE scanner is sufficient to guarantee permanently perfect results.

The CRUSE Professional Target is very demanding compared to other profiling targets, because it has a very high color range and metamerism. With this strict target, CRUSE scanners achieve a color accuracy of ∆E < 1.0. On standard profiling targets, the E value is even significantly lower than 1.0. To compare, the average human eye cannot perceive deviations below 1.
