Designed using the industry-acclaimed Mekel Technology MACH7 production microfiche scanner as its inspiration, the Crowley-manufactured MACH Mini Fiche offers the same impressive image quality and flexible software capabilities of the production scanner in a small, easily transported model.

The MACH Mini Fiche converts all formats of microfiche and aperture cards to easily usable digital files and is ideal for institutions with smaller microfiche collections or those with multiple divisions or branches that all need scanning capabilities. Compact and reliable, the portable microfiche scanner operates via FastFiche and the Quantum software suite for a broad range of post-scan image editing and processing options.
