The new SCAMAX® 3×1: Genuine production scanner for the mid-volume segment

Press Release

The “Middleweight Champion” offers 24/7 endurance, unlimited scanning volume and features from high-end production scanning never seen before in its device class.

Ergolding near Landshut, 16.02.2023. The German niche world market leader DATAWIN GmbH presents a new production scanner series: the InoTec SCAMAX® 3×1 is optimized in terms of price and performance for applications in the mid-volume segment, but offers the quality and numerous features of a high-end production scanner. Technically, it is based on the 6×1 series, which has become known as “The Throughput Sensation”. As the smallest and most affordable member of the SCAMAX® production scanner family, it replaces “The Classic” 4×3.

Johannes Boerboom, CEO and shareholder of DATAWIN GmbH

“The requirements in the mid-volume segment have increased. And with them the demands of the users. Even those who ‘only’ have three- to five-figure daily volumes to manage want to do so in the quality and with all the options and conveniences that high-end production scanning offers today – but without using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. With the SCAMAX® 3×1, we are redefining the mid-volume scanner segment and proving once again that productive and cost-efficient scanning is not a question of numerical scanning speeds and cheap initial purchase prices. But of the reliability, usability, durability and TCO of a scanner.”

The 24/7 DNA of its big brother. And also most of the features.

As the little brother of the SCAMAX® 6×1, the SCAMAX® 3×1 combines the 24/7 DNA and numerous premium functionalities of the globally successful desktop production scanner with even more compact device dimensions and even more favorable conditions. It is the first and so far only mid-volume production scanner to offer automatic, event-controlled document sorting. Another unique selling point is its image quality, which complies with the FADGI (3 Star) and ISO 19264-1 (Level B) digitization standards.

The SCAMAX® 3×1 is operated via an 7” capacitive touch display. It processes documents from DIN B7 to DIN A3 and can be cleaned without tools. Paper is transported via a wear-free, freely accessible belt system. All glass guides are scratch-resistant to staples and paper clips. The throughput per minute reaches up to 120 sheets duplex, the daily scan volume is unlimited.

Designed for mailroom scanning, document capture and archiving. Especially of cultural assets.

The SCAMAX® 3×1 is designed for daily or recurring scanning projects with document volumes up to the five-digit range: for example, in archive digitization, in the incoming mail department or for document capture of remittance slips, receipts or prescriptions. With its gentle paper transport, large bending radius, straight paper throughput and image quality in accordance with FADGI (3 Star) and ISO 19264-1 (Level B), it also meets the global requirements for the productive digitization of cultural assets and technical documents.

Made in Germany: fair, sustainable and energy-efficient.

The SCAMAX® 3×1 was developed and designed over 36 months at InoTec’s headquarters in Wölfersheim, Hesse. Like all InoTec production scanners, it is 100 percent ‘Made in Germany’. It is produced exclusively in Germany, at the Landshut and Wölfersheim sites, in compliance with all applicable health and safety and environmental regulations. Parts and components that are not produced within DATAWIN GmbH are sourced from certified suppliers via the shortest possible supply chains.

The SCAMAX® 3×1 meets all requirements that government agencies and public administrations, among others, formulate in their tenders with regard to environmental protection, social justice and responsible corporate governance in the manufacture of a device.

Successor to “The Classic”. Delivery from the 3rd quarter of 2023.

As the smallest and most affordable member of the SCAMAX® production scanner family, the SCAMAX® 3×1 replaces the SCAMAX® 4×3 in the InoTec portfolio, which has become known as “The Classic”. The SCAMAX® 4×3 had been launched in the late noughties and is considered one of the most reliable and durable desktop production scanners ever built. With the launch of the SCAMAX® 3×1, production of the “The Classic” will be discontinued. However, its support is assured for years to come.

The SCAMAX® 3×1 can be pre-ordered as of now from DATAWIN GmbH and all InoTec sales partners. Delivery will then take place with the 3rd quarter of the current year, following the InoTec Partners’ Day (t.b.d.).
