Microfilm & Microfiche Document Conversion

Scan, process, & digitally store important records

Avoid the Limitations of Microfilm with Digitization

Once upon a time, microfilm and microfiche were critical in recording and storing company information. If you find that you have drawers full of information that you can no longer access but want to preserve, we can help!

Because we value the sensitive nature of much information that was captured this way in the past, we offer secure shipment options when you send microfilm/fiche to our facility. Your boxes are also securely stored and delivered back to you once we have processed your microfilm/fiche to a digital format.

You no longer have to worry about losing valuable information. Our scanning solutions will preserve your history!

Microfilm Scanning

American Micro will manage collecting all of your microfilm rolls regardless of location. Using our equipment and experienced personnel, we scan, OCR, and index the microfilm at our secure facility. We assure the highest quality with our QC processes, making sure all images are converted from the film rolls in the highest resolution possible.

We convert your document images to PDF, TIFF or any other industry standard file format.

After converting, we can then upload the files to your digital storage solution. Alternatively, we can provide image storage through one of our cloud based systems, including FileBound or ImageSilo. These applications provide web-based access to your documents without any required IT infrastructure investment.

These systems also provide advanced document and file retention capabilities, which are perfect for legacy files such as personnel records, payroll, tax records or engineering drawings. Have documents available to appropriate staff at instant speed through powerful indexing and search capabilities.

Microfiche Scanning

microLegacy images stored on microfiche can be very risky, since this media is subject to degradation from environmental factors and age. Microfiche scanning represents some of the most challenging legacy image conversion projects. Converting this media requires specialized equipment, experienced personnel and detailed QC processes. Every microfiche card can have a different image count, requiring that each scan is double- and triple-checked to ensure that each image from every card has been captured.

Our equipment works with all microfiche formats. These formats include step and repeat microfiche, ultrafiche (oversized) jacketed fiche, computer output microfiche (COM fiche) and 105mm fiche.

Once scanned and indexed, we convert the images into a number of popular image formats, including TIFF or PDF. Just like microfilm, converting these images into current formats make them instantly available, either from your document management system, or one of our cloud based offerings from FileBound or ImageSilo. Our conversion services take the risk out of storing your documents without requiring any infrastructure investment, and in a quick and cost effective manner.
