Holloman Boosts Productivity by 75% with a Contex Scanner
Speed is important to the engineers at the Holloman Air Force Base…literally. When a new prototype is ready to be tested on the high-speed test track, Holloman engineers want their 3D drawings and wide format documents scanned fast. When marked-up hard copy drawings took too long to become digitally available, Holloman staffers invested in a Contex HD Ultra wide format scanner, and now boast 75% improvement in productivity.
Contex Scanner Fulfills Holloman’s Need for Speed
Regarded as the fastest place on Earth, Holloman’s 10-mile long, precision-aligned test track is where scientists and engineers put their newest prototypes to the test. Throughout the development of these prototypes, 3D models, drawings and designs are exchanged, along with subsequent revisions, feedback, and approvals. To ensure the precise representation of the hard copy drawings, Holloman relies on the Contex HD Ultra 4250i wide format scanner.

Holloman’s usage of the Contex scanner can range from 3 drawings to over 100 scans a day. As hard copy drawings are marked-up for design changes or to give sign-off, the documents are scanned with the HD Ultra. “The scanner’s improved speed and efficiency allows us more time to work on other projects. It speeds up whole process all together,” notes Ray Miller, supervisor for Test Group Test Management Drafting (TGTMP).
Contex Scanners Built for Productivity
The Contex HD Ultra wide format scanning solution delivers unprecedented speed, color accuracy, and imaging processing. Users can scan at 8-inches per second in color, or 642 ISO A0 documents per hour while achieving the highest quality images.
“The engineers at the test squadron are really unsung heroes; they design parts for test vehicles that save so many lives. They deserve a fast, reliable and accurate scanner that will allow them to spend more time on tasks that have a higher priority,” comments Sean Eikenbery, president, PeopleDocs LLC, a document imaging and database application developer and technology integrator.
The HD Ultra scanner is equipped with CCD imaging, archiving, and productivity-boosting features. This ensures best-in-class image quality, with 1200 optical resolution, and the fastest and most efficient way to scan, copy, file, and archive wide format images, drawings, documents and records.
Having one of the market’s fastest wide format scanners for the world’s fastest test track, the HD Ultra is proving to be best suited for Holloman’s requirements for today and for years to come.
