Once scanned, the aperture cards can be viewed, printed and shared from any computer quickly using a text search as opposed to searching through each individual aperture card to find your required document.
How does aperture card scanning work?
Engineering drawings maintained in aperture cards are scanned at high resolution in order to capture intricate details from the aperture card film. After scanning the cards, raw images are checked and corrected to ensure high quality. Scanned images which are of poor quality or appear aged are processed through sophisticated image enhancement treatments to obtain the best quality images for both viewing on-screen and printing purposes.
Once the aperture card scanning and enhancement stage are completed, the scanned images are then converted to the required electronic format this can be TIFF, PDF or JPEG. Aperture cards are then indexed as required by the client. Below are some common identifiers used to index aperture card files:
- Drawing Number
- Drawing Title
- Drawing Description
- Client Name
- Reference Number
Finally the scanned and indexed images are written on to a CD, clients can view and print the required images straight from the CD. If they wish to share the files with other users, the CDs can be copied to an office network, emailed or stored in a database. These are just some of the reasons why aperture card scanning is now a necessity to running a business efficiently.
In addition to this, we can also provide free user friendly search software on CD which will help users to find the required images quickly at a click of a mouse. Just another reason to get aperture card conversion performed by us.
