Aperture Card Scanning
Do you have an archive of Aperture cards with or without Hollerith (punch holes) indexes but no way to quickly access them? Even worse no backups if the worst happens?
Our staff use top of the range aperture card scanning technology to transfer aperture cards to a digital format.
So you can find the scanned cards, we will index them to your requirements.
The aperture card shown below contains slots known as Hollerith punch codes. These codes contain drawing information that our aperture card scanner can read.
Some important codes are the size, drawing number, revision and sheet number.
We can also manually enter the drawing data when the card is without the code information.
Once your Aperture Cards are scanned you benefit from:
- Easy retrieval.
- Reduced storage space requirements.
- Print and distribution facility.
- Multi-user availability.
- No misplaced/misfiled drawings, so no searching endless cabinets.
- Undamaged originals
Once the cards have been scanned with our powerful Wicks and Wilson scanner they are each checked for quality. As an ISO 9001 and 27001 accredited company the process control and quality is paramount to us. We process and care for work as if it were our own, taking as much time as required to create the best images.
After this process the aperture cards are indexed, usually this is a drawing number on the image or sometimes on the aperture card. The cards are then put through a final quality check before being copied to the required media and sent back to you using an tracked mail system or hand delivered by our own team..
