    Detailed Features

    Fast scanning for paper-intensive environments

    With impressive duplex scanning speeds of up to 60ppm/120ipm at 300dpi which is ideal for OCR processing, the DR-M160 is built for high quality scanning in demanding environments

    Robust design for fast delivery

    The robust design includes an impressive 60-sheet feeder, which accommodates mixed batched documents to help boost workgroup productivity. The DR-M160 is designed to provide super-reliable feeding and separation of various media types; from thick to thin sheets, and from embossed cards to three metre-long documents. Built to handle up to 7000 scans/day, the DR-M160 includes heavy-duty feed rollers and a solid paper transport that make it extremely durable and able to take on heavier workloads.

    Trouble-free paper handling

    A unique separation retry system allows the scanner to automatically re-feed documents on the rare occasions when a double feed detection occurs, helping to minimise any need for user intervention. The double feed release button allows the user to quickly ignore a double feed detection and continue scanning.

    Intuitive bundled software for ease of use

    The imageFORMULA DR-M160 comes with software that is easy to use for seamless scanning and document management. CaptureOnTouch has an intuitive user interface that incorporates a Full Auto Mode function for simplified scanning operation; and it also supports scanning to multiple file formats (PDF, PDF-A, TIFF, JPEG, BMP and PowerPoint) and connectivity to SharePoint. CapturePerfect is ideal for more mission critical batch scanning, as it provides the ultimate in viewing capabilities and send methods – including direct to folder, email and SharePoint. Also included are the industry-leading image processing software Kofax VRS and eCopy PDF Pro Office, for quickly creating, editing and converting PDF documents.

    Add a Flatbed Scanner Unit 101

    The optional Flatbed Unit 101 is an ideal partner for DR-M160. Easily attachable (via USB Cable) it is designed to work seamlessly for scanning bound or fragile documents with high precision.
