Drawings in their own right are extremely cumbersome to file and copy but ‘pre CAD’ drawings still need to be archived in some way. At UK Document Management we have the technology to produce high quality accurate scans from virtually any original regardless of size or quality. Over 5000 large drawings can be archived onto a single CD-ROM and in many cases creases, stains and other ‘defects’ can be removed in the scanning process giving a pure white background and clean crisp lines.
As with all UK Document Management services the aim is not just to deliver documents in a high quality, easy to find and well organised format but, to provide real and substantial savings and cost benefits which have a positive and noticeable impact on your bottom line.
Large format scanning gives us the ability of scanning up to E size drawings (slightly larger than A0) either in mono, greyscale or full 24-bit colour.
Drawings are normally scanned at between 200 - 300 dpi, although where specialist attention to detail or vectorisation is required we can scan at resolutions up to 800 dpi.
We will always endeavour to obtain the best possible quality from your originals whether they are blue prints, tracings; on linen or even on card, nothing is impossible.
Additional post scanning work can be carried out on drawings, such as cropping, repairing of lines and of course vectorisation.
