The DR-M1060/DR-M1060 II scanners can scan documents ranging in size from business cards to A3. (Up to A1 size is possible with folio scanning in Long Document mode.) The document sizes that this scanner can scan are shown below.

  • Size
    Width: 50.8 mm to 300 mm (2" to 11.8")
    Length: 70 mm to 432 mm (2.8" to 17")
                 Up to 3,000 mm (118.1") in Long Document mode
  • Paper Thickness
        U-turn  path (page separation):
                        27 to 128 g/m2 (0.04 to 0.15 mm)
         U-turn path (bypass):
                        27 to 164 g/m2 (0.04 to 0.2 mm)
         Straight path:
                        27 to 255 g/m2 (0.04 to 0.3mm)
    27 to 209 g/m2 (7 to 56 lb bond), 004 mm to 0.25 mm (0.00157" to 0.00984")

The documents to be scanned must satisfy certain criteria. Read the following items carefully.
  • When scanning multiple documents of different sizes, place the documents so that they cover the entire span of the feed rollers by aligning the centers and leading edges of the documents.
  • It is recommended that documents exceeding 432 mm (17") size are fed one sheet at a time.
  • Scanning documents before the ink is dry can cause problems with the scanner. Always make sure that the ink on a document is dry before scanning it.
  • Scanning documents that are written in pencil or similar material may make the rollers and scanning glass dirty, which can lead to smudges on the scanned image and transfer the dirt to subsequent documents. Always clean the internal parts of the scanner after their scanning such documents.
  • When scanning a two-sided document that is printed on thin paper the image on the opposite side of each page may show through. In this case, adjust the scanning intensity in the application software before scanning the document.
  • Laminated documents may not be scanned correctly, depending on the document.
  • It is recommended that thin documents be fed one page at a time.
  • Scanning the following types of documents can cause a paper jam, or malfunction. To scan such a document, make a photocopy of the document and then scan the photocopy of the document and then scan the photocopy.
