Preface
DuoScan f40 can scan reflective and transparent originals, each on an independent scan bed. The
scanner uses the Twinplate scanning technology, allowing you to prepare transparent originals
while scanning reflective originals and vice versa. This means a considerable increase in
productivity. Instead of only switching the light source, the scanner switches mirrors and thereby
uses a different optical path to scan transparent originals. This allows the scanner to optimize the
optical path for both types of originals.
DuoScan f40's image quality makes it perfectly suitable for pre-press graphical applications. It is
based on flatbed CCD (Charge Coupled Device) scanning technology. DuoScan f40 is
characterized by a large input size range and a high scanning speed. Due to its 10 000 CCD pixels,
an impressive output size range can be achieved. This high-precision instrument features
exceptional sharpness and color fidelity.
The universal transparency plate and three single slide holders allow you to scan transparent
originals. An batch slide holder frame and a set of four types of batch slide holders are available in
order to increase the productivity of the scanner. To facilitate the scanning of thick originals like
magazines and books, the document cover adjusts automatically to the thickness of the original. If
necessary, you can remove the document cover of the DuoScan f40 completely by lifting it.
The originals can be of any type. The FotoLook™ scanning software will optimize the scan result.
ColorTune™ software ensures that colors are matched seamlessly throughout the entire prepress
and printing process. The bit depths can be either 3 x 14 bit for color (packed into 3 x 16 bit or
truncated to 3 x 8 bit), 14 bit for gray scale originals (packed into 16 bit or truncated to 8 bit), or 1 bit
for line-art originals. The scanned data are transferred to the workstation through FireWire or USB.
The workstation can be either an Apple™ Macintosh™ or PC.

Placing Reflective Originals
You can place a reflective original directly on the scanner’s reflective glass plate. The DuoScan f40
has an adjustable document cover: when you scan a thick original (like a book or a magazine) on
the reflective glass plate, the document cover adjusts automatically to the thickness of the original.
If necessary, you can remove the document cover completely by lifting it.
1
Open the document cover of the scanner.
2
Center the original face down on the glass plate with the top side against the front ruler.
!
3
Note: The optical performance of a CCD scanner is always best near the middle of the
scan area. However, for the most common resolutions used for reflective originals,
placing originals to the side will not decrease quality.
Close the document cover of the scanner.
Chapter 3: Placing Your Originals
22
Placing Transparent Originals
When you scan transparent originals, you use the universal transparency plate or the batch slide
holder frame, which you put into the transparency tray of the scanner.
Chapter 3: Placing Your Originals
23
Using the Universal Transparency Plate
Caution: When you use the universal transparency plate, you always have to attach your
transparent originals with the single slide holders or with adhesive tape. Otherwise you might loose
them in the scanner.
To scan a transparent original, carry out the following instructions:
1
Center the original face down on the universal transparency plate so that its top side is directed
towards the calibration slit.
This position guarantees the best quality. Fix the original with one of the single slide holders or
with adhesive tape.
2
Insert the universal transparency plate into the transparency tray of the scanner with the Agfa
logo at the top.
"
Note: Make sure that the calibration slit of the universal transparency plate is at the front side
(standing in front of the scanner) and that it is clean.
Chapter 3: Placing Your Originals
24
Using the Single Slide Holders
You put your originals in a single slide holder to make sure that the original lies flat on the glass
plate and to avoid overexposure near the edges. There are three sizes of single slide holders: 35
mm, 6 x 6 cm, and 4 x 5 inch. To scan a transparent original using a single slide holder, carry out
the following instructions:
1
Put your original in the appropriate single slide holder.
2
Center the original on the universal transparency plate so that its top side is directed towards
the calibration slit. This position guarantees the best quality.
1. 35 mm single slide holder
2. 6 x 6 cm single slide holder
3. 4 x 5 inch single slide holder
3
Fix the single slide holder on the universal transparency plate by pushing it firmly down.
The rear of the holder has a glass adhesive strip, so the frame is secured to the glass. The
holder can still be removed easily.
4
Put the universal transparency plate into the transparency tray of the scanner with the Agfa
logo at the top.
The specifications (resolution,...) of the scanner apply to the whole scan area. However, image
quality is always at its optimum in the middle of the scan area.
Chapter 3: Placing Your Originals
25
Using the Batch Slide Holders
Batch slide holders are used in order to increase the productivity of the scanner. The concept of the
batch slide holders is developed so that a variety of combinations are possible.
The base is the batch slide holder frame in which different kinds of batch slide holders can be
mounted. The batch slide holders keep the originals perfectly flat between two plastic frames, thus
guaranteeing optimum sharpness. Contact your dealer for more information.
Four batch slide holders (4 x 5 inch, 6 x 9 cm, 35 mm framed and 35 mm strips) and a batch
slide holder frame.
Chapter 3: Placing Your Originals
26
35 mm framed batch slide holder
This holder can hold a maximum of sixteen pre-mounted slides at the time. Once loaded, you put
the holder into the transparency tray.
