The SCAMAX® 4x3

A classic for good reasons

Our everlasting hit has long been an institution on the ECM market. There are reasons for this.

The SCAMAX® 4x3 delivers: it is fast, untiring and reliable. In countless mailrooms and archives throughout the world. That makes it our bestselling scanner of all times. And also a true classic on the market for compact and powerful 24/7 production scanners. Optimized with respect to price and technical performance for a daily throughput up to the high five-digit range, it corresponds to a particularly widely spread performance profile and it is therefore the smart and cost-efficient choice for many applications whenever quality, user-friendliness and longevity are the essential selection criteria.

Call it a classic. Call it a favorite. Call it an institution.
We call it an InoTec production scanner, Made in Germany.

Arrange for a trial period today. We’re looking forward to your call.

Performance Upgrade

More work on the desk?
More power in the scanner!

All the scanners of the SCAMAX® Series can be upgraded at any time on site at your premises. Thus you simply respond to increasing scanning volumes with increasing performance – while enjoying the greatest possible investment security. Another smart idea of InoTec Organisationssysteme.

SCAMAX® 4x3 Performance

The scanning speed is dependent on various factors such as paper size and texture, PC configuration and the scan application.

Speed is a number. Throughput is a fact.

No question about it: the fastest possible scanning speeds are a requirement for time-efficient scanning. Such speeds are significant however only when they are maintained reliably for many hours at a time or during complete shifts. Without stops. And without errors. Only then can high throughput be assured. And only then do we at InoTec call them 24/7 production scanners. Or in other words, if you want to make real headway, you need both speed and endurance.
