  1. Wide format copier is used to copy files that larger than normal copiers. The average coverage area for such a copier is 34x36 inches. This is approximately 3 feet by 3 feet. These copiers, thus, can be quite large in size, taking up significant room. Fortunately, most such scanners come with their own stand with wheels and thus, can be moved about easily.
