The DR-M1060 is perfect for reliably scanning various document types up to A3 size, while keeping footprint low.


The Canon imageFORMULA DR-M1060 departmental scanner is a compact scanner equipped with a U-turn path, and is the smallest scanner in its class. It is capable of scanning A3 documents despite its desktop-scanner size, making it a cost-effective answer to your diverse scanning needs.

Comfortable and versatile

Despite its compact desktop-scanner size, the DR-M1060 is capable of scanning A3 documents. Its unique U-turn path design allows documents to be fed and ejected from the front of the scanner for convenient and efficient front-side only scanning operations.
The U-turn path can be switched to a straight path for plastic cards, thick paper, and other types of documents that cannot be bent, expanding the variety of media that can be scanned.

High performance for high productivity

The DR-M1060 scanner offers a collection of invaluable image capturing and processing functions for various document types that optimize readability and minimize reprocessing.
The scanner is also equipped with advanced error detection functions that not only allow smooth recovery from errors, but also prevent damage to documents by quickly detecting abnormal document movement.
All these features are designed to optimize workflows and improve productivity, delivering a reliable, efficient, and streamlined solution to all your document digitization needs.

Reliable feeding performance

The DR-M1060 is the first in the DR-series to be equipped with paper speed and skew sensors adjacent to the rollers.
These sensors monitor the paper speed and skew angle as the document moves during scanning, enabling the unit to stop the document feeder immediately a problem is detected and to prevent damage to the document.

User-friendly operating panel

The operating panel for basic operations, such as starting and stopping scans, is located on the front right of the scanner. The panel includes a DFR button to allow smooth recovery from feed stops that occur due to double feed. Up to nine jobs can be registered by connecting to the bundled CaptureOnTouch software.


Various functions to improve scanning efficiencies and qualities

Wide range of intelligent image processing functions are equipped.
Please refer to the “Image processing functions” page for details.

Bundled Software

CapturePerfect and CaptureOnTouch are both capture application software for the DR scanner series.
Each of the software can be selected and used, depending on the usage and workflow.
