Epson launches WorkForce DS-970 and DS-870 scanners for high-pressure environments

Epson has launched its fastest ever sheet-fed scanner range, the WorkForce DS-970 and DS-870.

Designed for high-pressure environments such as the healthcare, legal and financial sectors, the devices have capture speeds of 85ppm, or 170ipm, a high-capacity 100-sheet ADF and advanced job processing features.

Both offer a new colour LCD panel to improve ease of use for device and job control functions, as well as onboard sensors and software designed to boost productivity and image quality.

Kevin Dobson, product manager at Epson Europe, commented: “High-end scanning involves more complex capture scenarios. Customers are scanning high volumes of business sensitive documents in high pressure environments.”

The scanners now feature USB 3 for faster data transfer and an improved duty cycle, so users can scan up to 9,000 pages per day on the DS-970 and 7,000 pages per day on the DS-870.

Both models offer Epson’s widest media handling from 27gsm to 413gsm and long paper scanning mode up to 6096mm. For documents that cannot be scanned via the ADF – customers can choose from three different flatbed solutions up to A3 in size.

The optional network panel enables the DS-870 and DS-970 to be shared between users and departments. Both devices come with Document Capture Pro and Epson Scan software: Epson Scan software is designed for advanced imaging technology such as searchable PDFs, advanced colour dropout and automatic de-skew. Epson’s Document Capture Pro features job profile creation that enables individuals to scan, save and share information around. There are also advanced features for naming, separating and routing documents.

The WorkForce DS-870 and DS-970 are available from February 2019, priced at £745.80 and £1,014 respectively.
