No film scanner I know of uses teeth that mesh with a plastic
carrier to move the film during scanning. Some have teeth that
mesh with a plastic carrier used for rough positioning of the
carrier to the start of the scan. Then a metal screw controlled
by a stepper motor is used to move the film 36mm.
