Whether your originals are linen, paper, velos or printed AutoCAD, our scanning services can capture all your drawings.
Working to a high level of quality standards with over 40years experience. All work is carried out by our own staff in our own facility in Paisley, Glasgow. Using latest scanning technology from Kodak, Solar and Colortrac we will ensure every scan is a true representation of the original drawing.
Mcphersons use market leading Colortrac for their scanning technology. Able to scan any drawing from A5 up to A0+ to colour, black and white or greyscale up to 1200dpi. The scanning quality from the Colortrac range is far superior, and therefore most clients find scanning at 200dpi or 300dpi perfectly acceptable for their needs.
For more fragile drawings eg linen, McPhersons use market leading Solar with their specifically developed “drop down” scanner, which allows the operator to lay the drawing on a flat base board with the scanner mounted overhead to ensure fragile work can be carried out with minimum amount of handling. McPhersons are one of very few similar companies throughout Scotland who can capture this type of material up to A1 in a single shot.
Various Output Formats
Normal output format includes PDF, PDFA, Tiff or Jpeg, although we will work with you to ensure the end format is appropriate to your needs. Our data entry and finishing department will ensure your drawings are retrievable as per your requirements. For example bookmarking within PDF, Optical Character recognition (OCR), Indexing with as many fields as you require, with free retrieval software from market leading suppliers if preferred. If you are unsure, Simply Ask, and our team will advise accordingly.
