Tips for Scanning

Not every business has the same needs. While one company will need the best print resolution on the planet, another might need fast printing. For some people, scanning is the number one most important thing they need in their office machine. When you have a specific need it’s important to understand how to use that function correctly. Here are some tips for scanning to make your day go by more smoothly.

If you rely on scanning every day then it’s important to have the right machine for the job. Most desktop scanners can do around 10 scans a minute, while more powerful options can complete over 1000 scans in an hour. That difference can severely change the way you think about your work day.

You will also want to consider getting an Automatic Document Feeder to make things easier. An Automatic Document Feeder, or ADF, will continuously load in new sheets without you having to worry about it. This will drastically improve the time you have to work every day because you won’t have to spend time loading in new documents. This will work best with normal documents that aren’t booked together or stapled.

Lastly, you should consider getting a metal detector in your machine. This will help keep an eye out for things like staples and paper clips. If these small metal pieces get in the machine then it can cause damage. This can put you out of commission for a long time and cost you more than you would think.
