The DR-M1060 is a uniquely compact A3 scanner – ideal in corporate office departments or decentralised branch offices that have limited desktop space but require A3 scanning. Users will appreciate the comfortable and convenient operation of the front document feed and exit design.
Reliable and versatile paper handling
The U-turn and selectable straight paper path with robust feeder mechanism allows for smooth scanning of a variety of media types, including embossed cards, thick and thin media or 3m-long documents. Using Folio mode, it is also possible to scan A1 size documents. The DR-M1060 includes an array of technology for reliable paper handling. Ultrasonic double feed detection helps prevent lost images, while the Double Feed Release (DFR) feature reduces interruptions by allowing users to quickly ignore and continue scanning in special cases.
Highly productive scanning
The DR-M1060 is extremely productive with ultra-fast duplex scanning speeds of up to 120ipm (A4) and a 80-sheet document feeder. Despite its small size, it is built for handling big workloads of up to 7,500 documents a day.
Perfect image processing every time
Enjoy perfect image results with the DR-M1060's host of advanced image processing features, such as advanced text enhancement that produces clear legible images even from feint text originals. Additional features like Auto Colour Detection, Auto Size and Deskew Correction, Text Orientation Correction and Customised Colour Dropout further enhance image quality and consistency.
Bundled software to improve productivity
Enjoy quick and effortless scanning with CaptureOnTouch software for both ad-hoc and routine tasks. For scanning larger batches of documents, CapturePerfect is ideal, with its multi-window and thumbnail views, plus flexible options like scan-to-folder, email and SharePoint. The DR-M1060 also comes with eCopy PDF Pro Office and Kofax VRS (including AIPE).
The DR-M1060 comes with a host of optional accessories to maintain a high level of productivity. Scan bound books, journals and fragile media with both the A4 and A3 optional Flatbed Scanner units. These USB-connected dual-scanning flatbed units work seamlessly with the DR-M1060, letting you smoothly apply the same image-enhancement features to any scan. A 2D Barcode Module is also available that enables barcode recognition of QR codes, PDF417 and Data Matrix formats through the ISIS/TWAIN drivers.
My use case is 600DPI colour artwork duplex scanning, so can't comment on office document processing.
For me : phenomenal technical image quality of output, deep software capabilities and small physical footprint make this a winner.
Most interestingly as well, having owned two tray-fed document scanners before, I am extremely pleased by how little (if any) cleaning this Canon unit needs for persistently artifact-free 600DPI colour duplex artwork scans.
Fuijitsu ScanSnap and Plustek units I used before needed a clean every 25 sheets of paper to avoid dirt depositing on the two optical scanning elements. For whatever magic reason this Canon goes through 150 sheets (and often a lot more) before any dirt artifacts begin showing in the final scans.
The service from TradeScaners guys has been fantastic, too. Helpful pre-sale advice followed by the unit arriving when scheduled.
