Aperture card scanners are machines that scan the contents of aperture cards and produce a digital file. An aperture card is a punched card that has a microfilm chip affixed in a cut-out window. Usually 35mm tall, the microfilm chip contains a reduced image of a reference document. An example might be an engineering drawing.
Whether you are a small business or large corporation, chances are you deal with at least some paper on a regular basis or you have paper files from previous years that have not yet been converted into digital format. Either way, you have a few options: 1) leave it as is because being paperless is not a priority for your company; 2) go paperless but still keep paper or microfilm records; 3) scan and archive all of your documents on your own; or 4) get an archive writing system or company to help you go completely paperless and maintain that status as your company grows.

Aperture cards are a type of card that is cut out to fit a chip or microfilm within it. Surrounding the image is machine-readable data that pertains to the specific image. Aperture cards allow you to archive important information and make inexpensive copies for distribution. They have been used in different industries for many years. They are a very reliable and useful way to archive information and have a lifespan of 100 years. Aperture card scanners are used to read the cards, scan them, email them and electronically store them.
