Modules and Tools for Braille Embossing from Schober USA
Cincinnati, OH - Schober USA now provides tools and modules for the embossing of Braille letters and symbols. With this unique technology, the embossing process can be accomplished at speeds which allow it to be used in-line at the printing press or offline in a converting system. It is applicable for both web and sheet fed processes (i.e. window patching systems), in a wide variety of materials including paper, board, laminates and more - allowing it to be used for all kinds of printed materials, packaging, and more.
The Braille set is comprised of a negative segment that includes all possible 288 Braille positions and a positive segment which holds the changing Braille embossing patterns. It can be quickly and easily exchanged, yet holds tight tolerances. In certain instances this cost-effective Schober technology can be integrated into existing cylinders as an upgrade. This allows printers and converters to enter the Braille embossing market quickly and with minimal costs.
