Kodak Alaris offers supplies and consumables for all Kodak Scanners. For optimal feeder performance and image quality, Kodak Alaris recommends using professional cleaning materials and consumable items, such as:
- Roller cleaning pads
- Transport cleaning sheets
- Staticide wipes
- Calibration targets
- Feeder and Separation rollers
- Ink cartridges
- Imaging guides
Calibration Target: A calibration target will last longer if the recommended maintenance of the scanner is followed. Variables such as paper types (i.e., carbonless paper), dirty feed rollers, which can transfer debris on the target, etc. will shorten the usage of the calibration target. Always clean your scanner before calibrating.
Imaging Guides: Imaging guides may need to be replaced if you notice degrading image quality or if something happens to the white patch on the imaging guide.
Tires: Kodak Scanners use replaceable tires that can feed a wide range of document types, sizes, and thicknesses. Tire life and performance will vary based on the customer’s document set, the frequency of cleaning the transport and tires, and following the recommended schedule for changing tires. You should change the tires if you notice an increase in multiple feeds, stoppages, or a decrease in feeder performance that is not resolved by following the cleaning procedures.
