With the introduction of the Epson Workforce DS-30000 and DS-32000, the company have created two excellent machines to fill a void in their A3 scanner range. The two units are designed with productivity in mind. The DS-30000 offers scan speeds of 70ppm (pages per minute) and a duty cycle of 30,000 pages per day whilst the DS-32000 offers higher speeds of 90ppm and 40,000 pages per day. Additionally, both units feature four, dual, 3-line CIS sensors on each scanning side. This is above and beyond the competition and gives much better scanning results. For example, scanning crumpled documents with a single light source results in shading on the final scan, whereas the Epson Workforce DS-30000 & DS-32000’s dual light-source massively reduces this shading on the crumpled scan.
The sleek design of the latter unit allows it to fold away, allowing for a more compact mode when in storage. Alternatively, the DS-32000 can elongate, stretching the feeder surface area and thus allowing for longer documents, such as medical records, to be scanned with ease. These features have led the Epson Workforce DS-32000 to win the coveted “Print IT Reseller Editor’s Choice Award” for 2020.
Both units feature an intuitive touchscreen display which allows users to view and select scanned jobs and destinations. Plus, as an industry first, the screen will load up display messages when an error has occured within the scanner. For example, if a paper jam has occured or a roller kit needs changing, a message will display on-screen. Users with little technical scanning knowledge can now quickly identify an issue and fix it themselves or report it to an administrator.
Furthermore, Epson pride themselves on creating eco-friendly document scanners. Both units will run on significantly less power than the common scanner, which will save energy and money spent on business utility bills.
