KABIS™ II+ Key Features at a Glance

The new KABIS™ II+ system continues the Kirtas tradition by providing the SmartCradleTM with new automatic book centering that increases post processing productivity. Librarians, and archivists love the SmartCradle and its 110 degree position which is optimal for low stress, gentle book positioning and is ideal for fragile and rare books. Air flows and the Enhanced Page Separator combine to separate pages, and the newest SureTurn robotic arm with its vacuum head will gently lift and turn the page. Within the vacuum head is our Page Edge Sensor technology to detect multi-page or no-page lift conditions and automatically take programmable corrective action. The result is full book content integrity and quality for small and large digitization projects alike. The newest KABIS™ Manager software provides a simple user interface to let you start digitizing quickly, and downloading MARC or Dublin Core bibliographic information to include with the book metadata, is simple and easy from OCLC or your own database.
