Archimedes – Multipurpose scanner for Art Diagnostics
CHSOS has developed Archimedes, the multipurpose scanner for Art Diagnostics. It is a modular low-cost, mobile and lightweight scanner that can accommodate a number of diagnostic imaging methods such as Technical photography, Infrared Reflectography, Multispectral Imaging, and X-Radiography. The imaging heads are not included with the scanner.
This scanner is used to acquire high resolution imaging of library assets such as manuscripts, prints, and drawings that need to be kept flat on a table. This scanner moves with high resolution (0.1 mm) an imaging camera ((weight up to 3 Kgs) over the document which can safely rest on the table. It can scan a maximum areas 70 x 70 cm and it can be connected to a computer to control the most appropriate XY movements.Download Archimedes brochure (6 downloads)
Archimedes for Paper Conservation
This scanner is particularly useful for library assets such as manuscripts, prints, and drawings that need to be kept flat. The imaging cameras can be scanned over the paper object which can safely rest on the table. Archimedes scanner can fit even a large infrared reflectography camera and it helps to acquire high-resolution imaging of the items.
