Scanner company BÖWE BELL + HOWELL set the world record for the longest document scanned with a length of 3,875 feet.

The record was set with the Trūper 3600 low-volume production scanner. The scan took only 1 hour 17 minutes and 22 seconds.
"BBH continues to push the bounds of document scanning, in this instance by completing a scan that was nearly three-quarters of a mile long," said Mandy Lewis, senior product manager at BÖWE BELL + HOWELL. "With this record, we've again proved that BBH offers perhaps the most reliable, hardest-working scanners available — and we think our customers, who rely on BBH scanners day in, day out, would wholeheartedly agree."

This World record is aimed at impressing healthcare organizations. They need to be able to easily scan long, vital medical records, such as fetal monitoring strips and EKG printouts.
