Production Document Scanner Features

High-Speed Scanning

Production scanners provide high-volume daily scanning capacity with scan speeds from 100 to 150 pages per minute (PPM) and 200 to 300 images per minute (IPM). These high scan rates help businesses to handle large scanning jobs more efficiently. Converting paper documents to digitize records at these speeds allows companies to multi-task employees.

Heavy Duty Service

The daily duty rate of these 6 document scanners ranges from 44,000 up to 130,000 documents. This duty rate adapts to the needs of extremely large scanning operations.

Advanced Image Processing

Scanning features such as skew correction, color detection, blank page removal, and automatic orientation ensure high-quality digital images. Optical resolutions of 600 dots per inch (dpi) enhance readability and file size efficiency. Flatbed scanning for book-type documents is possible with the Ricoh fi-7700.

Automatic Document Feeders (ADF)

Feed trays on these production-level devices allow the loading of 300 to 750 documents. Accommodating this high number of documents in a single scanning operation leaves employees time to tend to other duties while scanning takes place without assistance.

Versatile Media Handling

Expect the ability to scan various document sizes and types, from business cards to A3 documents and possibly even larger ones. Document sizes can include thick, thin, and delicate papers, ensuring comprehensive scanning capabilities.

Robust Duty Cycles

Designed for production environments, these scanners likely boast significant daily duty cycles, ensuring they can handle the rigors of intensive scanning demands.

Multi-feed Detection

Advanced sensors detect and prevent multiple pages from being fed through the scanner simultaneously, reducing the risk of missing pages or document damage. Automatic skew correction also aids in increasing perfect scans.

Easy Integration

Compatibility with various document management systems through TWAIN, ISIS, or proprietary drivers, allowing for seamless integration into existing workflows.

Touchscreen Interfaces

User-friendly touchscreen panels for easy operation, enabling users to select scan jobs, adjust settings, and more directly from the scanner. The Touchscreen control panel offers an intuitive user experience with a simple touch or swipe to easily navigate through menus, settings, and options with the need for complex button configurations. Users can complete tasks more swiftly and accurately by eliminating the need for manual input or navigation through multiple buttons.

Connectivity Options

These Ricoh Production Scanners include USB connections for the Ricoh fi-7800, fi-7900, fi-7600, and fi-7700 models. The Ricoh fi-8930 and fi-8950 document scanners have ethernet connectivity for networking to connect and share the scanner across multiple users or workstations. Each model is compatible with Twain and ISIS.

Software and Tools

Each Ricoh production scanner comes bundled with professional-grade scanning software. These document scanners provide features like optical character recognition (OCR), document sorting, and indexing capabilities, enhancing the digital filing process. These document scanners provide for scanning directly to a storage device.


Security features such as password protection, data encryption, and secure network transmission protect sensitive information during the image capture. Protecting data from a cybersecurity breach is imperative for any production scanner. A secure network and encryption can safeguard employee information, customer data, and company proprietary information.

Model-Specific Questions

Q: What are the key differences between the fi-7600 and fi-7700 models?
A: The fi-7600 is optimized for flexibility in scanning a wide variety of document types and sizes, with a strong emphasis on batch scanning efficiency. The fi-7700, on the other hand, combines this flexibility with a flatbed option, making it suitable for scanning bound materials and fragile documents. The fi-7700 accommodates media from 20 to 413 g/m2 while the fi-7600 only accommodates media of 128 to 209 g/m2. The wider range of the fi-7700 offer more utility.

Q: How do the fi-7800 and fi-7900 models stand out from earlier models?
A: The fi-7800 and fi-7900 models are very similar in performance, but the fi-7900 has faster scan speeds of 30 ppm and 60 ipm and a higher daily duty by 20,000 scans daily. Both models offer durability and advanced paper handling technologies. These two models serve the most demanding scanning environments, where uptime and throughput are critical.

Q: How are the fi-8930 and fi-8950 scanners different?
A: Both of these models are identical in accommodating business cards to A3-sized documents, and even longer documents in a special mode. They have the same optical resolutions of 600 dpi and the same connectivity options and paper weight handling capabilities. Where these high-production scanners differ is in scanning speed and daily duty range as displayed below:
