The difference between a microfiche viewer and a microfiche machine that scans microfiche cards is in the resulting file. A microfiche viewer lets you view an image by projecting the information on a screen. If you want to view a second image, you move the microfiche to a different position. This type of microfiche machine is totally manual and can not store any information for later use. A microfiche machine that scans has many advantages. These microfiche machines are called microfiche scanners. This microfiche machine is designed to create a digital file of the images. When a microfiche machine creates a pdf or jpeg image, you can store the resulting image on a computer for viewing and for later use.
A Microfiche machine is very expensive and I don’t recommend you go buy a microfiche scanner for scanning a few microfiche cards. Instead, you can contact a company that has a microfiche machine for scanning microfiche cards, and have them convert your microfiche. Companies that have a microfiche machine can make whatever type file you like from your microfiche. Since they already have a microfiche machine, they can charge you a very low microfiche scanning cost to convert your microfiche. This is the most economical method to convert your microfiche cards.
It is recommended that you find the right company with a microfiche machine but also with reputation and integrity. The microfiche machine should be high quality and the operators need to be experts. You can read more about this services in related article or you can give us a call.
