Feed through scanners will bend the paper 180 degrees. I don't know that any given scanner will be better than another. I use HP and Xerox scanners.

Can you place on the glass plate and scan that way. That will be the safest way to do it.

Can you copy 50 pages of this thin paper using the scanner?  My guess is no.

Perhaps ask a copy service if they can scan the paper for you or copy it onto normal paper.

I do lots of scanning  and copying and the source needs to be decent weight paper.

I have used HP, Xerox, and Canon and they all need normal paper weight for scanning.

The best scanner I've had for thin paper is a Panasonic KV series scanner (better than my Brother, Fujitsu, HP, Kodak, and others). My model is obsolete, but their current KV series scanners (which I don't own) have a "Thin Paper Scanning" feature:
Now you can continuously scan documents that are as thin as 0.04 mm
You may read more about it here:

Copy the original thin paper source onto normal thickness paper using flat bed scanner and then use the copy to run the 50 copies needed.

Your best bet is to use a manual feed scanner, any commerical sheet fed scanner is going to be designed to feed standard weighted paper. But if you manual place the 'thin' paper on the scan bed should scan ok as you are not using the sheet feeder then.  You may want to contact Xerox or Canon to see if they have any units that can be customized for the weight of paper you are trying to scan
