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.

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.

This allows printers and converters to enter the Braille embossing market quickly and with minimal costs.
