SRI provides superior support to a diverse customer base in Manufacturing & Sourcing, Engineering & Services and Consulting & Training. One of their projects required a platform that could transform PDF files into editable and searchable HPGL files. PDF FLY was a unique solution which delivered what they needed – to move wiring diagrams saved as PDF into a proprietary CAD viewer.
SDL provides content and document management solutions that streamline the information creation and delivery process. They integrated the PDF SDK into their XML Professional Publisher (XPP) to enable import of PDF pages as EPS files. XPP, an automated XML publishing engine, is widely used in publishing, technical documentation, financial, government, high tech, aerospace and defense industries.

Harris Corporation uses Adobe FrameMaker to produce its technical manuals. The graphics are either produced in CAD applications or stored in legacy systems such as Interleaf. In both cases, they rely on PDF FLY to convert the drawings from EPS into MIF producing graphics that are editable and can be easily imported into their FrameMaker documents.
The world-renowned Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich, forms a community of 20,000 people from 80 nations with an outstanding research record. Visual Integrity products are at work in several faculties. One professor uses MATLAB to generate sophisticated data plots in EPS. To share these, he needed a solution to publish the EPS files to the Web in a format that people could zoom and pan. SVG was the answer, automatically produced in seconds by invoking PDF FLY via a command line script on UNIX.
Mohawk Industries, the leading producer and distributor of flooring worldwide, relies on PDF FLY to streamline their marketing workflow to move logos, product images, brochures and ads into their XML-based online authoring and publishing system.
