I am selling an Aztek DPL 8000 drum scanner complete with many
Aztek drum scanners are based on howtek’s High Resolve 8000 Series of drum scanners. Aztek’s drum scanners offer many improvements over the ones manufactured by Howtek. Aztek’s scanners are higher quality, more reliable, and faster then the HR8000
Aztek used only the best parts available for there scanners. The boards and bearings were just some of the parts that were upgraded. The Aztek DPL software is with highly regarded in the scanning community, and is currently without equal. The standards are very high over at Aztek. All of their scanners are rigorously tested to guarantee that they stand up to Aztek’s high tolerances.
Aperture size is said to control the resolving power of a drum scanner, a smaller aperture increases the amount of detail that is visible to the scanner. The DPL 8000 is a true 8000 PPI drum scanner with a 3-micron minimum aperture.
Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing the scanner or
if you have any questions or comments. I would be happy to do some
sample scans for any interested parties. Pictures are available upon
request. The asking price is 8000 USD.
