In 2022 FilmFabriek will expand it’s product line to include a new smart and affordable wetgate pump. The wet gate system is a necessity for those with old damaged film as it does a remarkable job of removing scratches. Historically automated wetgate systems have been very expensive, however this new solution is both efficient and very cost effective. This new system has been designed and built by the FilmFabriek engineering team. The compact wetgate pump takes up hardly any space and works effortlessly with all our scanners. For more info contact us at www.filmfabriek.nl

Filmfabriek is present at the digital days conference from 8-10 December 2020. A digital event, focusing on opportunities and challenges of the digitization of businesses. A short video (1 minute) shows how we implement digitation of analogue films.

We are proud to be a FIAF supporter. Their magazine ‘Journal of Film Preservation’ is recognized as one of the leading sources of research in film preservation.
