Many organisations in building construction, architecture, manufacturing, railway and government agencies use drawings and plans in their day-to-day business with sizes up to A0 in black and white and colour.

Organisations can build up a large archive of large format drawings and plans which are difficult to store and access or share and manage.

Scanning these drawings into an electronic format such as PDF or TIFF provides an efficient electronic archiving and retrieval solution.

By having large format documents scanned and electronically archived, companies can minimise time spent searching for specific plans and drawings this will increase their productivity, save valuable space and also safeguard these drawings against any loss or damage.

Once scanned and stored on an inhouse server, the archive of scanned drawings provides instant and sharable access to everyone who needs to print, e-mail or simply view the drawings and plans while in or away from the office.

Scantronics can scan your plans, maps, drawing in black and white and colour at medium to high resolutions, image output can be TIF, PDF or other recognised formats at your behest.

Our drawing and plan scanners are high throughput and we can scan many hundreds of images per day. All machines have both top and bottom illumination, which delivers excellent image quality from the originally scanned document in black and white or colour.

All scanned images are cleaned up using special software tools after the initial scanning process.

This involves running raw scanned drawings and plans through the de-speckling, cropping and de-skewing processes to obtain the best results from the original.

Each scanned drawing or plan is then individually inspected prior to its final release to our client

After the scanning process is complete, for a fast and efficient search, we can index your drawings, map, plans exactly by your requirements or as an example to some of the following categories;

  • Drawing Reference Number
  • Part / Tool Number
  • Description
  • Drawing Size / Category
  • Client Name
  • Date
  • Issue number
