CS80 Cruse Scanner

The 'Baby' Cruse is one of the overhead or "non-invasive" heritage scanners we operate. It has a book cradle that we designed ourselves. This is cantilevered and adjusts to the size and depth of the text block (and spine width) so that the book is fully supported and the stress on the spine is minimised .

This scanner can accommodate documents slightly larger than A2  (610 x 430mm maximum) and  up to A3 volumes -  scanned as double page spreads.

The "Baby" Cruse is currently located at our Christchurch Office.
