“We are honored that the ImageTracDS 1085 has been chosen as the Outstanding A3 Mid-Volume Production Scanner ‘Pick’ award winner by Buyers Laboratory,” said ibml Chief Marketing Officer Dan Lucarini. “ibml is passionate about helping our customers to accelerate the delivery of high quality images and information to downstream systems and processes.

A complement to ibml’s family of high speed production scanners, the ImageTracDS 1085 offers a host of features not found on other scanners in its class, including dual output trays to aid in post-scan sorting, and left-justified feeding to remove the hassles of batch preparation. ibml also offers a variety of optional software bundles that help document-intensive capture environments sort, classify, validate, extract and route content. The ImageTracDS 1085 processes 85 pages-per-minute (170 images per minute), making it ideal for mid-volume document capture applications.
