Types of Microfiche

Microfiche is a traditional storage tool used to preserve scaled-down reproductions of documents, newspapers and maps. Traditionally used by councils, architects and construction firms, typically there are three types of microfiche- 16mm, 35mm and COMBI fiche.

16mm Microfiche

  • 16mm microfiche typically contains A3/A4 size documents and the frame is 6 X4 inches. 

35mm Microfiche

  • 35mm microfiche typically contains documents which range from A3, A2, A1 and A0 in size. Types of documents are large-format drawings such as maps, plans and drawings. 

COMBI Microfiche

  • COMBI microfiche contains a combination of standard and large format drawings. 

If you have a large archive of microfiche and are unsure of the size, don't panic! We're more than happy to arrange for a consultant to visit your office location to offer advice on digitising your archive of microfiche.

Microfiche Scanning Benefits

Protect your records from loss & damage

Microfiche are extremely susceptible to heat, humidity, fire and water damage. Just a few scratches could result in the information contained being damaged for lost forever. With our scanning solution, you can have the peace of mind knowing digital backups are safely stored in a cloud-based document management system. 

Reduce costs

The price of microfiche readers can be far more extortionate than the actual requirement to access that particular document. Outsourcing the digitisation of your microfiche eliminates the need to invest in expensive capture equipment. Once your records are digital, they can be easily shared and transferred with employees across the organisation.

Free up your office space

Scanning your microfiche into a digital format frees up valuable office space which could be put to better use as additional desk space or a new training room.

Microfiche to digital 

Microfiche, alike aperture cards and microfilm are all types of microform, a traditional storage tool used to preserve scaled-down reproductions of documents, newspapers and maps. In today's digital era, microform has almost become redundant with many companies choosing to digitise their records. But the transition to a digital archive has left many organisations asking themselves; how do I gain access to the records historically stored on such types of formats? 

We've invested in state-of-the-art microfiche and aperture card scanners to handle all your microform scanning needs!. We will digitise your microfiche and aperture cards in PDF/TIFF/JPEG's or any other file format required.
