High resolution scans of large originals (up to 200 x 300 cm), with maximum sharpness and 100% parallelism with a homogeneous and stable illumination of the scan area as well as an integrated ICC color management make our Synchron Table Scanner and Synchron Table Scanner Light the first choice in the areas of decor and design, art reproduction with precious original artwork from museums, galleries and archives with sensitive, historical documents.

Our software department has developed the CRUSE DESIGN STUDIO (CDS), a software with integrated project and workflow management, which automates all daily scanning tasks in predefined workflows for the most diverse tasks in an extremely user-friendly manner, saving time and thus making it more economical. IMAGE STACKING, a tool for innovatively mixing existing scans with different lighting and texture settings for new designs, is already integrated in CRUSE DESIGN STUDIO.

With CRUSE FACTORY (optional) you get a tool meeting all requirements of the decor industry. The calculation of high-quality 3D elevation information, even in high resolutions, for a most natural reproduction of embossed surfaces, such as the production of decorative wood or plastic laminates, stone tiles, wallpapers and pictures, becomes extremely easy with an automated workflow. Various export options or effects such as gloss (glossy), shadow (shady), together with the accurate color data, make your data unique and give you clear lead and competitive advantage over the competition in the area of decor & design.

We are very pleased about your interest in our products.
