Contex MFP is a valuable business asset for aerospace manufacturer
Larger-than-life tools for larger-than-life projects
An aerospace manufacturer needed to upgrade its Xerox 510 MFP that had reached the end of its life cycle. The replacement equipment must be able to quickly scan extraordinarily long wide format documents – as large as 3 x 15 feet.
The manufacturer selected a Contex wide format scanner with Nextimage REPRO, which processes 20-inch documents in less than 2 seconds. The exceptional image quality of the Contex SD 36-inch scanner makes it an ideal choice for in-house scanning of wide format technical documents, in color or black and white.
Benefits & Results
The Contex wide format scanning solution provides an ideal upgrade. The production team scans technical documents as multipage PDF or TIF files for sharing or archiving, making real-time image adjustments. Combined with their existing wide format printer, the Contex scanning solution makes vivid color copies, without incurring traditional “click-charges” typically associated with photocopying.
The aerospace manufacturer uses the Contex SD MFP solution to scan in color or black and white, and distributes the digital files to production teams located in-house and remotely. The manufacturer also scans technical documents to archive. Nextimage REPRO, Contex’s multi-function scanning software, further enhances the manufacturer’s workflow. The production team scans source documents to multipage PDF or TIF files, making real-time image adjustments. And the auto file-naming templates facilitate easy indexing.
When combined with their existing wide format printer, the Contex scanning solution makes vivid color copies, without incurring traditional “click-charges” typically associated with photocopying. Due to the success of the first installation of the Contex SD scanner, the aerospace manufacturer intends to roll out more scanners at its corporate headquarters and satellite offices. Cryer comments, “The Contex scanner has become an integral part of this manufacturer’s production processes, so much so that the scanner has become a traffic center.”Download PDF
