Photoplotting Services

The photoplotter was first invented by Gerber Scientific Company in

the 1960's for the needs of printed circuit board fabrication. The

application was then extended to other areas such as chemical

machining, hybrid masks, silkscreen masters and many more.


We have been making photo-tooling film for local and international

customers since 1984. Our laser photoplotter makes images at a ¼

mil resolution onto 7 mil Kodak film. There is a variety of data

formats we can accept for making images.


To request our photoplotting services, please contact us.

When you request our photoplotting services, please make sure you specify the following:

    Film polarity:

  • Positive -- Computer data is opaque; non data area is clear

  • Emulsion up -- Also referred to as "Right-Reading Emulsion Up". The emulsion coating is on the upper (near) side of the film when the image is "right-reading".
  • Emulsion down -- Also referred to as "Right-Reading Emulsion Down". The emulsion coating is on the lower (far) side of the film when the image is "right-reading".
