Why Panasonic

Panasonic ToughFeed Technology
Panasonic's ToughFeed is a group of powerful scanner functions that make your scanning experience effortless. These functions improve scanning efficiency, prevent damage to your scanner, and eliminate frustration due to manual reshuffling of scanned papers to look for sheets lost in a double-feed. It helps your scanner do what a scanner is supposed to do, without any unnecessary interruption.

Stapled Document Detection

Multiple sensors are used to detect various types of stapled documents, and to immediately stop the scanner when a staple is detected. Staples are quickly detected in any location, minimizing damage to both the document and the optical glass. See our Stapled Document Detection in action.

Ultrasonic Double-Feed Detection

Our ToughFeed scanners are equipped with one or more ultrasonic sensors, which accurately detect double feeding, even when scanning documents of various thicknesses. When detected, the ultrasonic sensor prevents double-feeding by immediately stopping the scanning process. See our Stapled Document Detection in action.

Intelligent Feed Control

Multiple sensors check the paper feed condition and automatically adjust the roller pressure to ensure that documents of various thicknesses are accurately fed. This makes it more reliable and accurate than conventional methods that use only the feed mechanism. (Included with the KV-S4085CW & KV-S4065CW/CL)

Superior Roller Mechanisms

The paper feed rollers separate from the paper each time a sheet is fed, so the tendency to double-feed caused by the paper feed roller pressure is reduced, even when feeding paper of different thicknesses. Any paper sliding is also detected and the double feed prevention roller pressure is adjusted to prevent the paper from slipping and jamming. (Included with the KV-S5055C)
