CRUSE – We love reality

Large format scanner – 3D scanner – Software

CRUSE based in Wachtberg, Germany, founded in Rheinbach in 1979, develops and produces equipment to capture large format originals in highest quality and for particularly high demands. CRUSE is an excellent partner for archives, architects, libraries, photographers, artists, museums, land registries, survey offices and industries such as decor, prepress, and packaging.

Each scanner is constructed in Germany individually according to the requirements of each customer. This defines CRUSE quality as the international benchmark for scanning and reproducing large format originals. CRUSE scanners are installed in more than 30 countries worldwide.

In 2017, CRUSE is again going ahead with groundbreaking innovations.
CRUSE 3D Photostation has been presented to a wide range of trade visitors at InPrint in Munich and has aroused considerable interest.

The new CRUSE Image Manager is focusing on most advanced tile technology in order to display gigabit large images in highest sharpness and within seconds.

We would be very pleased welcoming and informing you at one of the fairs or during a special demonstration appointment in Wachtberg.

ST-Series with front- & backlight

We recently invested in a new Cruse Large Format Scanner with LED light and Image Stacking Software for our decorative surface design facility.  We were pleased to have the opportunity to customize our lighting options to suit our needs and have found that the LED lighting offers the highest level of texture in our scans.  The versatility that can be achieved using different lighting modes ensures that we can provide scans that truly represent the look and feel of the original material.  Versus our previous Cruse scanner with fluorescent lighting, our scanning times have been greatly reduced with the use of LED lighting.  This has greatly increased our productivity and allows us to grow our portfolio at a much quicker rate.  The fidelity of our scans is extremely high quality giving our product the sharpness and clarity required in our industry. We are also very pleased with the Image Stacking Software, this software has added another dimension to our design development process.

Overall, we are very pleased with the LED lighting, our customized lighting options, our increased scanning capacity and outstanding image quality.  Cruse’s software and support are also remarkable and we appreciate the quality scanner they have built and proudly stand behind.

Application areas for Cruse Scanner

Synchron table (ST-Series)

Decor industry

In prepress, one has long been dependent on good photos and their ektachromes.

Now high quality scans of original materials are possible with constant textures throughout the scan result, from the beginning to the end.


CRUSE produces special scanners for this sensitive area with a vertical table guide and various extra options. Thess exceptionally large scanners for up to 2 x 3 meters of scan area are ideal for recording high-quality templates, e.g. paintings, on which no objects are allowed above during scanning.

Art reproduction

The CRUSE ST scan technology has been developed for the special need of art reproduction and turned into the best solution for detecting paintings, watercolors, graphic art collections, collages, sculptures of up to 18 cm in height (thickness) and art of any other kind.

Archives & libraries

Multifunctional scanners to capture high-quality archival materials of all kinds. Especially for archives, we developed scanners to meet all requirements of the template. These modular and multifunctional scanners are particularly suitable for archival material to be scanned very gently with or without printing on glass.
