With this unique technology, the embossing process can be accomplished at speeds which allow it to used in-line at the printing press or offline in a converting system. It is applicable for both web and sheet fed processes (for example window patching systems), in a wide variety of materials including paper, board, and laminates, 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.
