Drawing Scanning

drawingscanningOrganisations in building construction, architecture, electrical manufacturing, railway and highway industries use drawings and plans in their day-to-day business. During the course of their business, these organisations have built a large paper archive of drawings and plans which are difficult to store, access, share and manage. Scanning these drawings into an electronic format provides a solution to these difficulties.

By scanning the drawings and plans scanned and electronically archived, companies minimise the time spent in searching for drawings, increase their productivity, save valuable office space and safeguard the archives against any natural disaster. Once scanned and electronically stored on a central repository, the electronic archive provides instant and shared access to everyone who needs to print, e-mail or simply view the drawings and plans.

The Glorious drawing scanning and plan scanning bureau specialises in large and small volume scanning services. Our advisors can help you to achieve the solution you are require from a one-off scanning of drawings and plans then archiving to CD to on-going, drawing and plan scanning service requirements.

Whether your requirement is to scan drawings or plans of:

  • Engineering Drawings
  • Building Construction Drawings
  • Electrical Circuit Drawings
  • Texture Drawings
  • Railways Drawings
  • Council Plans
  • Conversion to CAD formats (using auto-conversion or drafting)

Glorious can provide the best plan and drawing scanning service with high-quality results at a low cost!

Scanning Drawings

Our scanners are amongst the fastest and most sophisticated in the scanning industry. They have both top and bottom illumination, which gives excellent image quality from the sheet.

All scanned images are cleaned up after the initial scanning process. This involves running raw scanned drawings and plans through de-speckling, cropping and de-skewing processes to obtain the best results. Each scanned drawing or plan is then individually inspected prior to its final release.

Drawing Indexing

After the scanning process is complete, for a fast and efficient drawing search, we can index the drawings by the following categories or as required;

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

Storage Media

Over 5000 A0 size drawings can be archived on a standard CD or over 30,000 A0 drawings can be archived on a standard DVD. That CD or DVD can be accessed from any PC, Laptop or Mac. The data can also be copied to a network location for instant shared access.
