Epson 12000XL


Sharp and accurate image reproduction

The Expression 12000XL and 12000XL Pro are high-quality A3 scanners designed for applications that demand high precision. The scanner makes it simple to precisely capture media up to A3+ in size and ensure crisp images and professional results every time.

It’s also flexible, easy to use and has low power consumption in comparison to previous Epson models.

Optimise your scanning

  • Healthcare

    Healthcare & medical X-rays

    Very few scanners are suitable for digitising X-ray film and, from a medical standpoint, achieving accurate detail and maximum colour depth is extremely important.

    Using the latest software, capture photographs, negatives and X-rays in high-resolution detail, and to international standards such as DICOM.

  • Textile Rainbow

    Textile production

    Colour accuracy plays an essential role in textile production. Any errors in colour can render productions unusable, affecting supply and causing needless waste of materials.

    SilverFast TexColorAnalyzer and Epson scanners can be used at each stage of the process, from design house to factory, ensuring that high colour accuracy and exacting standards can be met throughout the production process.

  • Temple and trees


    Ensure your photos and film are backed up and protected by digitising them. Whether it's film you've just shot, recently discovered old photos and film, or precious items, you need a solution that can deal with a whole host of specialist media and still deliver faithfully accurate results.

    Some things just can't be replaced, and unfortunately pictures can yellow and negatives can start to degrade over time. Whether you're a photographer, history enthusiast, or museum curator, ensure that these precious details aren't lost forever.

  • Forensics

    Legal and public sector

    When every pixel matters in important legal documentation - Epson Expression scanners are used. With an optical density capability of 3.8Dmax, 48-bit colour depth and Epson Micro Step Drive TM technology, high precision is assured even for applications like fingerprint forensics evidence.
