SCAMAX® 8x1 The Power Tower


The SCAMAX® 8x1

Replaces entire open track scanners

Our throughput heavyweight saves you space, time and money. For years to come.

With up to 300 sheets per minute and continuous 24/7 durability, the SCAMAX® 8x1 exceeds the throughput of some open track scanners – with its floor area of just one square meter. That saves space and time. But above all, it saves a lot of money. For its precise and high-grade construction lends this powerhouse not only its brilliant scanning quality along with its user-friendliness, but also a long life-cycle that results in its low overall operating costs for many years.

The SCAMAX® 8x1 is your smart and sustainable selection for the day-to-day scanning and sorting of document quantities in the five- to six-digit range. For many applications, it is the most cost efficient and space-saving alternative to an entire open track scanner. And: it is 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® 8x1 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.
