DL Mini

 

Automatic book scanner

Manufactured by

The DL Mini is an automatic book scanner with the highest level of automation while respecting the safety of bindings and pages. It turns and scans pages from all types of books, magazines and bound newspapers in a very reliable process and can also handle smaller books that close spontaneously with ease. This is truly the first automatic book scanner with little to no operator interventions.

Scanning

 

This is the only automatic book scanner that has correctly implemented a manual mode. The user has the ability to turn off the auto feature and scan materials such as photos, spiral bound notebooks, postcards, manuscripts, newspapers, and maps in a complete manual mode. The 180° book cradle allows for loose papers to be scanned at the same high quality without switching devices.
