Capturing excellent images since 1989
Founded in 1989, Colortrac is the leading innovator in affordable colour and monochrome large format scanning technology.
“By Colortrac” is a sub-brand of Colortrac launched in 2015 to meet the needs of a group of users not previously addressed by the large format scanning industry.
At the heart of “By Colortrac” is SmartLF Scan! a new type of scanner available in 24” and 36” models
SmartLF Scan! represents a breakthrough in the wide format scanning industry and is the first and only truly portable large format scanner available in the market today.
All Colortrac products deliver precise, accurate output while at the same time being very easy to use. With SmartLF Scan! we have taken this a stage further and provided a completely self-contained scanner with built-in screen, keypad and processor. This allows users to scan to USB stick or scanner internal memory or for bigger quantities of scans to send them to a local or a networked PC using the small Windows collection program supplied. All scans are initiated from the scanner.
Applications and placement
SmartLF Scan! has proved to be popular in the construction industry, allowing architects and construction firms to easily move the scanner between site locations. All construction changes and mark up information on printed copy (red-lining) can now be captured and sent rapidly to update central drawing records without needing to move the paper originals from site.
Award winning customer success
The Colortrac core scanner products comprise the highly successful SmartLF SC and SmartLF SG ranges. Both machines have won much praise and acclaim with the Specialty Graphics Imaging Association (SGIA) awarding SmartLF SG its Product of The Year in 2015. Colortrac success is also recognised by two Queen’s Awards; the 1999 Queen’s Award for Export Achievement and the 2012 Queen’s Award for International Trade. SmartLF Scan! was also recognized by the Construction Computing Awards in 2016.
Customer reaction to Scan!
Feedback from customers shows that SmartLF Scan! is particularly popular because of its flexibility being able to double as a low-volume office and a mobile scanner. Customers report they love the fact that SmartLF Scan! is essentially two products in one.
Colortrac is headquartered near Cambridge in the UK. Colortrac also has offices in USA, Denmark, Japan and Mexico.
