PFU announces the fi-5950 production scanner, the latest addition to the Fujitsu family of scanners
 
London, UK 13th September 2010 – PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Limited, within Fujitsu, responsible for document scanners, today announced the availability of its latest production scanner for high performance applications - the Fujitsu fi-5950. With speeds up to 270 images per minute (135 pages), the Fujitsu fi-5950 is the ideal product for high volume customer needs. Equipped with the latest VRS image processing technology and new paper transport technology, the Fujitsu fi-5950 can tackle large projects of forms or mixed batches with minimal operator intervention.
 
New intelligent functions for efficient operation
Working closely with the Kofax VRS Software Development team, this new scanner provides the latest VRS image processing technology with increased throughput when using intelligent page rotation and intelligent blank page detection. Additional improvements have been addressed in dramatically reducing the time and effort it takes to recover from the multifeed errors; now, if a multifeed occurs, scan operators are offered an option of accepting the current scan or repeating the process. Further, the fi-5950 offers an improved VRS user interface: VRS scanning settings and other scan characteristics can be saved under one profile. The high speed performance and the combination of advanced image functionalities minimize total operation time required to scan predefined document volumes.
 
Smooth operation through new transport rollers
To ensure a reliable paper transport when scanning complex or mixed batch (size) documents and increased productivity, the fi-5950 features Fujitsu’s latest roller design which consists of complete new materials allowing for reduced operator intervention and cleaning. “The new fi-5950 production scanner processes paper efficiently, smoothly and quickly, whilst at the same time minimizing the pre- and post-processing tasks for the operator”, explains Klaus Schulz, Manager Product Marketing EMEA. “Equipped with the latest VRS image processing technology it is actually the fastest VRS-scanner in the mid volume production market. It helps streamline processes and reduce capture related cost, making document processing an increasingly valuable asset in every enterprise.”
 
Strong heritage
The new document scanner succeeds the fi-5900C, which has a strong position in the market and accounted for catapulting Fujitsu up to the second place in the European MVP market.
 
Price and Availability
The Fujitsu fi-5950 is available immediately through our regular EMEA distribution channels for a recommended retail price of Euro 24.998 / GBP 20.823 / USD 32.497 (plus VAT).
