Title: Aperture Card Scanners in Ontario - MES Hybrid


1
Aperture Card Scanners in Ontario
  • Facilitating the Move to Digital Archiving

2
Aperture Card Scanners
  • Aperture card scanners in Ontario can streamline
    the digital transformation process. Digital
    formats eliminate physical storage requirements
    and enhance access to information. In addition,
    digitizing eliminates the wear and tear on an
    aperture card. The information contained in the
    aperture cards microfilm is better protected for
    many years to come.

Aperture Card Scanners
  • When first introduced, aperture cards were a
    welcome innovation. All types of organizations
    routinely stored their technical and engineering
    drawings on microfilm aperture cards. But,
    digital methods soon highlighted how cumbersome
    aperture cards could be. As a result, aperture
    card scanners in Ontario offered a more efficient
    and productive digital solution.

Aperture Card Scanners
  • What is an aperture card?
  • Aperture cards are used to archive large
    documents such as engineering drawings. They
    look like a punch card and have a 35mm sized
    microfilm chip mounted on them. The hole punches
    represent machine-readable metadata associated
    with the microfilmed image. And, the microfilm
    houses a reduced version of the stored image.

Aperture Card Scanners
  • With the world going digital, do aperture cards
    still serve a purpose? In some instances, they
    provide a means of archiving important documents.
    For example, the U.S. Department of Defense used
    aperture cards extensively. However, they, along
    with other government agencies and private sector
    companies are moving to digital formats by using
    aperture card scanners in Ontario.

Aperture Card Scanners
  • Although the trend to digital archiving is
    apparent, aperture cards do offer some
    advantages. Primarily, they last a very long
    time. In fact, many sources cite a lifespan of
    100 years or more.
  •  
  • In addition, aperture cards can be read by a
    human instead of solely relying on a computer.
    Technological obsolescence is not an issue
    either. As computer hardware and software evolve
    rapidly, aperture cards remain the same and
    require no equipment upgrades.

Aperture Card Scanners
  • The Inherent Issues with Analog Technology
  •  
  • Although aperture cards have some advantages,
    they also have several limitations. For example,
    you cant search efficiently for analog
    information. Instead you need to physically
    manage the cards and use proprietary machinery.
    This process takes more time and effort.
  • Its also easy to mis-file aperture cards.
    Finding a lost aperture card may be a futile
    effort.

  • Aperture cards are also more fragile. If the card
    isnt handled with care, the film can come loose
    or the mounting glue leaks onto other cards. In
    either case, the cards will not run through
    machinery properly.

  • Using Aperture Card Scanners in Ontario
  • To overcome the obvious limitations with analog
    aperture cards, scanners can digitize the
    documents and create the desired efficiencies.
    Special aperture cards scanners in Ontario can
    produce a digital version quickly and
    economically. They transform legacy documents
    into a digital format for easy retrieval.

10
Aperture Card Scanners
  • Aperture card scanners in Ontario allow you to
    automate the digitizing process. Depending on
    the scanner, you can automatically scan hundreds
    of cards. After scanning, you can store the
    files digitally or print them directly to a
    printer with minimal effort.
  • Aperture card scanners in Ontario create a
    time-saving process for archiving your critical
    engineering documents. By converting aperture
    cards into digital images, you can streamline
    document access, retrieval and management. You
    dont have to wait to retrieve microfilm drawings
    or search for missing aperture cards.

  • With the efficiency benefits of aperture card
    scanners in Ontario, you can eliminate labor- and
    time-intensive tasks. Instead, you can focus
    your efforts on more strategic and
    revenue-generating projects.
