Kirtas KABIS IIIW Key Features at a Glance

The new Kirtas KABIS IIIW system continues the Kirtas tradition by providing the SmartCradleTM with new automatic book centering that increases post-processing productivity. The 110 degree position 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 SureTurnTM 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. 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.
