For most of the cards, the FBI used approved/certified high-speed scanners from contemporary equipment... see a current listing at www.fbibiospecs.cjis.gov/Certifications
For those cards which may have been deteriorating (falling apart), approved/certified flatbed scanners were used.

I am researching about AFIS history, and in one of the articles I read it states, "the FBI's criminal files and converting the detected minutiae to digital format began in 1977." Then it states that, "it too 3 years to complete the conversion of some 14 million criminal fingerprint cards."
I was just wondering what was the FBI's process on the conversion from Ten-print card to Digital format? Did they just use a general scanner to scan it in to AFIS?
