Crowley`s Wicks and Wilson Division Debuts UScan Microform Scanner in Cebit, Germany on March 6, 2012

The Crowley Company`s Wicks and Wilson division introduced the firm`s first self-manufactured on-demand multi-film scanner 4-in-1 at Cebit Exhibition in Hannover Germany. VIKMANS the W&W partner in India also participated. The scanner will be soon presented in India to the VIKMANS Customers.

Christopher Crowley, president of The Crowley Company, welcomed VIKMANS for participating in the launch of the firm`s first self-manufactured on-demand microform scanner, in Europe at CeBIT.

UScan is a 4-in-1 Scanner designed for walk-up visitor`s use in Library or an Archive. The ultra-portable UScan unit fits easily on a standard desktop and digitizes and is capable to scan different film formats (microfilm, microfiche, jumbo fiche and aperture and micro-cards) as well as photographic materials (slides, negatives, etc.).

He told Mr. Chhabra that "Manufacturing a walk-up microform unit is a natural extension of our production-volume lines, the Mekel Technology and Wicks and Wilson microfilm, microfiche and aperture card scanners". He added that "We`ve been able to take the technology of our high-end commercial units and blend them into a single microform unit that, while designed for non-archival use, can offer archival quality to a walk-up user such as a student, educator, library member, records keeper, clerk or visitor."

Matthew McCabe, vice president of business development, The Crowley Company, was also present and added "The UScan offers several advantages over the units currently on the market, the most apparent being a color digitization option. Additionally, the UScan provides an option for auto or batch scanning, a necessity as the public becomes savvier in operating walk-up scanners."

Manish Chhabra managing director of VIKMANS was impressed with his words "Traditionally, new products were launched in America. It is the first time we have launched it at CeBIT and we are proud that Indian Distributors are also present in the Launch"
