How to Convert Auto Parts Microfiche with Scanner

Scan Auto Parts Microfiche with Generation Imaging

Do you need to read an auto parts manual contained on microfiche? Are you a mechanic, customer service rep, autoparts reseller, or actual manufacturer? You can try to find an old microfiche reader or even a microfiche printer at a library, or you could send Generation Imaging the microfiche in the mail and have us scan them.

car parts microfiche scanning

Automobile mechanical parts and vehicle manuals were filmed on step-and-repeat microfiche. They are microfiche cards with genuine OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) part drawings and index direct created by the manufacturer. We can convert those car parts to pdf, tiff, or jpeg. If you would like an extra service, we could also enhance them to become searchable PDFs (also called OCR). Auto parts microfiche have all the parts from the major manufacturers. So if you need to look up something obscure like 2013 Audi A5 Cabriolet L4 2.0 Alternator Diagram, if you can get your hands on that microfiche, we can convert that for you.

There are a few reasons why you may need vehicle parts manuals to be digitized to image. You could be a mechanic, a DIY owner, or a service manager from a motor vehicle corporation. We have scanned many different types of companies over the years, and not just cars. We have also converted jet skis and construction vehicle manuals on microfiche.

Microfiche Scanning Cost Variations

In today’s global digital marketplace, anyone could set up a website or advertise microfiche scanning services without even having the microfiche scanners to back up their promises. Others do have the microfiche machines, but treat is as a part-time job or hobby, working out of their home or storage unit, and may have inferior quality scanners.

You ought to be suspicious if a microfiche scanning price is too high. This may indicate that the project is being subcontracted to another vendor or someone is making a commission. Conversely, you ought to be suspicious of a price that is too low. This may indicate that the person is a hobbyist or sending it to India for scanning.

A Microfiche Machine to Scan Your Microfiche

How to Read Microfiche

Those 4 x 6 cards with tiny images embedded inside, that you need a light viewer or microfiche machine to read them… those are called microfiche. The reason you need a clumsy viewer to see anything is that the images on the microfiche are too small to see them without lots of magnification. Many people run into a dead end with this issue and don’t know what to do about it. They need to view the information but don’t want to have to buy an outdated viewer to do this.

Use a Microfiche Machine to Scan Microfiche Cards

Microfiche Reader Printers

Your company, organization, or government office may use a microfiche reader printer which enables you to save and print one image at a time. The problems with this are twofold:

1) the reader printers break down and no longer supported easily;

2) it takes internal time and labor to search specific images.

Converting Microfiche to PDF

There is a much better solution for you. It is called microfiche scanning and for this you need access to a microfiche machine that scans the images. A microfiche machine scans the images and creates a separate file for each image. If you try to scan the entire card as one image with a microfiche machine, the images would be unreadable because of poor resolution. A paper scanner for example, makes a 1 to 1 scan of the original, but a microfiche machine can make a 1 to 48 scan. The microfiche machine actually magnifies the image before saving it.

A microfiche machine is very expensive, usually up to $60,000 for a high end microfiche machine. We have a microfiche machine that we can use to transfer your files. For a handful of microfiche to thousands of microfiche  cards, we can make use of our microfiche machine to digitize your microfiche cards. We can create pdf files or jpeg files with the right microfiche machine and you will be able to view all your images on your PC. CONTACT US
