SPECIALIST GLASS NEGATIVE PLATE SCANNING

Photographic plates were also an important tool in early high-energy physics, as they get blackened by ionizing radiation. For example, in the 1910s, Victor Franz Hess discovered cosmic radiation as it left traces on stacks of photographic plates, which he left for that purpose on high mountains or sent into the even higher atmosphere using balloons.

All our machinery offer a  high Dmax measurement of optical density which ensures the thinner parts of film (shadows in negatives or highlights in positives) reproduces detail in the deepest of shadows.

Working with museums, historical archival companies, corporations and private clients, we can cater for small units to bulk large orders in the many 1000's.
