Demos Available in Booth #319

The high-speed, high-function InoTec 6×1-series document scanners provide quality conversions for all high-volume records collections in a space-saving design.

Frederick, Md. and Nashville, Tn.  The Crowley Company (Crowley) – a world leader in records scanners, services and digitization solutions – will introduce the InoTec GmbH SCAMAX® 6×1-series paper scanner for the first time in the U.S. at the annual Association of Records Managers and Administrators (ARMA) InfoCon exhibition. Held in Nashville, TN from October 21-22, Crowley will showcase microfilm, microfiche, aperture card and document scanners in Booth #319.

Matthew McCabe, Crowley vice president of sales and marketing, notes, “At ARMA, records managers from diverse fields come to see the latest technologies in hopes of making their digitization efforts more productive. We are excited to see the attendee’s reactions to this new technology as well as Crowley’s other industry-trusted production scanners.”

InoTec 6×1 High-speed Document Scanner

The new InoTec 6×1 document scanner combines the most high-efficiency features of InoTec’s production volume 8×1 floor model in a desktop scanner design to offer high-volume, high-speed paper conversions in a space-saving design.

“Records managers require the highest-performing scanners available to satisfy their large production scanning demands.” McCabe adds. “The 6×1-series gives those with large paper collections a tool to withstand and exceed those great expectations. It offers efficiency and versatility without demanding a large amount of department real estate. Best of all, the InoTec scanners boast few maintenance requirements, making them the champion workhorse information managers need,” McCabe continued.


Available in four speed models, the 6×1 scanner series captures documents sized 12.5” x 77” at document scanning speeds ranging from 120ppm/240ipm to 210ppm/420ipm. The document scanner features a 7” multi-touch communication panel with button speed control and traffic light scanning logic to cue operator movement for maximum handling and control. The final digital images can be simultaneously output as color, grayscale and bitonal images for additional time-savings. Scanned pages can be imprinted with up to four lines of print and/or barcode without impacting speed. An adjustable output hopper sorts the originals in a neat stack for post-scan convenience.


The InoTec 6×1 offers full quick and easy access to the transport path

The 6×1-series reduces or eliminates possible downtime through specifically-designed hardware features, including:

  • Straight-through paper path with front and rear document output ensures documents are not damaged while scanning
  • Gentle belt transport system protects originals and boasts long lifetime without maintenance
  • Easily accessed transport path for quick access in the rare event of a paper jam
  • Specialized, scratch-resistant glass guides with a three-year warranty reduces damage from staples, paper clips and other records hazards
