Microfilm Today


Suppliers of used and/or reconditioned micrographic equipment

Microfilm is still widely used for long term retention and preservation applications but there has been substantial migration from micrographic to digital systems for active document management. This has resulted in the availability of a wide variety of used equipment, often in excellent condition. Hardware for microfilm often has only a few moving parts, machines are robustly constructed and the total standardisation of formats ensures that even quite old items are perfectly usable today. In this section we list known suppliers of used equipment who usually publish details of the items they currently have available on their websites.
