Automatic metal plate indenting and embossing with varied style types

Once embossed, plates can either be placed in an external collection box via a side eject mechanism or stacked in a First In First Out (FIFO) output stacker. The external tray is designed for those jobs where plate shape or side frequently changes.

It can be configured for either embossing or indenting using a wide choice of font styles, and plate dimensions can be manually adjusted based on application requirements, from a minimum of 50mm x 20mm to a maximum of 120mm x 90mm.

It has a X on X off protocol and has a generic Windows printer driver. Production can be easily managed by any Windows-based application. Other protocols are available for legacy machine replacements.
