Wide Format Scanners

Océ brand wide format scanners are built with instant on technology which is an environmentally friendly method that allows the machine to turn on instantly. Instant turn-on times eliminate the unnecessary energy that is used to warm-up and turn the machine on. Océ brand wide format scanners are also ENERGY STAR® certified, which limits the amount of power needed in stand-by, ready and sleep modes.

Our remanufacturing process gives scanner parts a second life by recycling them, which eliminates landfill waste. Many companies send used machines to landfills, but companies dedicated to sustainability, like Canon Solutions America, create products with parts that can be reused. Recycling parts reduces the consumption and waste of materials that come with manufacturing new parts. Since recycling is a part of our routine practice, there are special collection facilities for transporting and processing products that can't be used anymore so they are disposed of properly at the end of their lives.

Reducing waste and energy is vital in order to protect our environment. When looking for a vendor for any machine it is important to know if they are committed to sustainability. Knowing about remanufacturing policies and energy reducing technologies is necessary when buying a wide format scanner. In addition the scanner should be ENERGY STAR® certified as well as ISO 14001 and RoHS certified. These certifications will not only save your business money, but they will also benefit the environment. Canon Solutions America has the resources to turn your business into a sustainable scanning operation.
