Hayes, UK, May 28, 2019
PFU (EMEA) Limited, a subsidiary of PFU, a Fujitsu company, the world's leading scanner manufacturer, today announced the launch of the fi-7800 and fi-7900 A3 production scanners, the latest devices in Fujitsu’s flagship fi series *1. Designed for organisations requiring high-productivity, volume document management solutions, where faster speeds alone are not the whole story. Overall real-world throughput is the critical metric, and PFU EMEA delivers by pairing their reputation for high quality craftsmanship with robust and reliable engineering. As a result, the new additions to the range minimise manual maintenance and enable continuous high-volume scanning for multiple paper formats.
“Technology is the key driver of productivity gains in the workplace, and digital leaders are looking for ways to automate processes and differentiate themselves,” explains Mike Nelson, Senior Vice President PFU (EMEA) Limited. “We’ve launched the fi-7800 and fi-7900 to appeal to our customers working in high-pressure environments, where their business productivity depends on using technology to enable extremely high levels of throughput, reliability and consistency.”
The fi-7800 and fi-7900 offer a vital productivity tool for multiple businesses across all industries. The new devices are designed for use in environments where paper-heavy processes are the norm; from the digitisation of archived documents in the legal sector to manufacturers processing stock movements. The new Automatic Separation Control *2 enhances PFU’s industry-leading paper management technology, significantly reducing the need for manual roller adjustments. Freeing users from multifeeds and paper pick-up issues helps eliminate mispicks, and rescans, ensuring continuous, uninterrupted operation leading to improved business efficiency for clients.
PFU has focussed its engineering excellence on creating high-quality and capably designed devices. A metal paper path has been added, reducing damage and friction when compared with resin pathways. The daily cleaning mode ensures longer product life by helping users clean the glass surfaces and rollers correctly. The scanners both incorporate LED lighting, which illuminates the inner workings of the device to make manual cleaning quick and straightforward when required.
Both devices also make use of market-leading PaperStream IP software, which enhances the quality of scanned images by removing stains, imprints and watermarks, supporting onward processes such as OCR (Optical Character Recognition). The PaperStream Capture technology recognises different document types and barcodes to automatically extract key data points and name, sort and distribute documents, thus speeding up processing.
Crafted with the operator’s comfort in mind, these scanners feature front-access controls to make the scanning process quick and easy. The fi-7800 & fi-7900 scanners can also be operated from a seated position, saving time and effort when scanning large volumes of documents. The improved Stacking Control function controls paper output speed, and the Elevator Stacker automatically adjusts the position according to the amount of ejected paper to make retrieval comfortable.
PFU offers the fi-7800 and fi-7900 with a service offering; maintenance, cleaning and consumables are all provided in a single predictable cost, ensuring scanners operate to their full potential, and to help businesses to focus on their growth, and not their hardware.
