HIGH PERFORMANCE MICROFICHE SCANNERS
LEADING THE INDUSTRY
The Mekel MACH series microfiche scanners are the
most advanced fiche scanning systems on the market
today. Designed to handle various microfiche and jacket
formats, the MACH VI and MACH VII create superior
image quality at high speeds from even the most difficult
film. Designed for service bureaus, institutions,
agencies and other large volume end-users, the MACH
series microfiche scanners have a reputation as the
most automated, reliable, hardest-working and
easiest-to-use equipment in the industry.
VERSATILITY AND IMAGE QUALITY
COM. Jackets. Step and Repeat. Using the latest in Mekel’s CCD, lens and patented “smoothlight” fiber optic
technology, these fiche scanners demonstrate an ability to seamlessly convert any format of microfiche to
various electronic image formats. Providing the highest optical dpi in the industry, the MACH series microfiche
scanners deliver clear and consistent image quality while automatically regulating density variations common to
many microfiche. Image processing features include:
Automatic crop
Automatic invert
Automatic deskew
Automatic rotation
Automatic mirror
Software focus
HIGH SPEED
In addition to superior image quality, the MACH VII fiche scanner is designed to operate at speeds of up to 200
images per minute. The MACH VI fiche scanner, a mid-range unit, achieves up to 100 images per minute. Both
pieces can create both bi-tonal and grayscale images simultaneously without impacting speed.
EASY TO USE SOFTWARE CREATES ADDED VALUE
, the MACH series microfiche scanner software, virtually eliminates the software learning curve. The
simple-to-use sliders, preview screens and flexibility often reserved for more sophisticated applications ensure that
even a first-time operator will be scanning within hours of installation and training. Automatic image enhancement
features allow for nearly unattended scanning without sacrificing image quality.
Highlights
Easy-access tabs allow for quick job set-up without the need for elaborate and confusing wizards
Advanced menus for detailed image enhancement features
Dual-view capability to view bi-tonal and grayscale images simultaneously without impacting speed
Image quality control and rescan window that allows for real-time image enhancement
Flexible and simple to use file naming capability
