Precision paper handling

To keep your workflows fluid, the imageFORMULA DR-C240 offers a powerful, high-quality feeding mechanism that ensures best in class reliability for scanning various documents, including ultra-thin papers from 27gsm. The ultrasonic Double Feed Detection and Double Feed Release (DFR) function allow scanning to restart quickly, keeping downtime to a minimum.

Easy operation, consistent results

The imageFORMULA DR-C240 includes a wide range of high quality image processing capabilities. These include automatic page size and text direction detection, text enhancement, a deskew function and automatic colour detection. The user-friendly control panel lets operators scan with a press of a button - accelerating and simplifying scanning tasks.

Rich software bundle

To intuitively scan documents, then easily send them to multiple destinations (including cloud services) simply use Canon's CaptureOnTouch. The bundled eCopy PDF Pro provides powerful PDF creation, editing and conversion tools.

Affordable to run and maintain
