Wide Format Scanning is a way of copying larger images that are otherwise hard to replicate. Wide format scanners can scan and copy large files at a high quality that can be replicated and printed again and again without hassle.
There are many areas in which Wide Format Scanning can be used. It is of great use to industries including the construction industry, where large versions of items like Building plans, Floor Plans and Engineering plans need to be replicated. These can very large and can be scanned so it is easier to use and store. This is also useful for the electrical layouts that are required for buildings that can be very extensive and also for mechanical drawings.
Wide format scanning can also be used for scanning precious photos to ensure they are kept safely and for fine arts and drawings to preserve them and to help to reproduce them on a larger scale.
One of the main advantages of Wide Format Scanning is the ability to archive old papers that are oversized. These papers may be taking up much needed space in offices and by scanning them; you can have an electronic copy of the document. This can then be stored on a disk, hard-drive or USB stick and can be accessed quickly at any time. This is a great benefit to many companies that may be able to downsize, but previously couldn’t due to the need for storage. There is also the riska version benefit. Storing all of your wide format documents digitally will ensure that they are protected from fire damage, flood damage or loss, provding they are effectively back-up.
When a company produces a tender, that may include drawing or items on a large scale, wide format scanning can be used to replicate the tenders so they can be distributed to a larger number of people and also be saved in a secure way on a hard-disk rather than just in a soft copy.
Being able to scan something is important but there also needs to be the ability to print what has been scanned. The scanners need to be of a high quality so when the need occurs for the item to be reproduced they are of the same quality as the originals.Poor quality sanning results in poor quality printing and reproduction.
Wide Format Scanning is widely used in different industries including architecture and drawing houses.
