  • Embossing Machines for Varying Applications

    Many different industries use embossing machines in a variety of applications. For this reason, there are several different types of embossing machines to suit each specific application in the best way. The type used usually depends on the material or the surface that is being embossed. Rigid and hard surfaces like aluminum or steel usually require heavy duty machines; where as other embossing machines may be better suited for flexible and/or soft materials and surfaces such as leather and cardboard. There are also hand held embossing machines that are often...

  • Embossing Machines for Clothes and Credit Cards

    Two of the most popular products in America use embossing machines in part of their production process; certain types of clothing such as graphic tees and credit cards. Clothing is obviously a necessity as well as an arena in which we spend much more money then is necessary, and we do so with credit cards. Both are important mechanisms in our society.

  • Embossing Machines as a Sustainable Means

    In the past decade our culture has seen a massive shift toward sustainability. We are being urged as individuals and as a society of producers and consumers to acknowledge and take responsibility for the resources we are using and the waste we are creating. And when it comes to large manufacturers and distributors, the weight of this responsibility is about as heavy as it gets. Even though we all demand and consume their products, it is easy to point the finger at these mass producers. That's why it is even...

  • The Countless Applications of Marking Machinery

    by Jenny Knodell, IQS Editor Look around you for a moment: chances are, many items on your desk have a design, logo or text made by marking machinery. Thousands of common, everyday products are marked for identification or decorative purposes. Bar codes, packaging or expiration dates, graphics and labels are found on just about every product or packaging these days. Embossing machines, a unique kind of marking system that produces 3-D raised text and designs on any malleable material, has many different uses. The embossing process is simple material is...

Industry Information

Embossing Machines

Embossing machines are used to create a three-dimensional image or pattern on paper, leather, plastic or another material. Using heat and pressure, a raised or depressed image is formed using rollers or dies.

Embossers, which are continuously fed, have one roller with a flat surface and one roller with a patterned or imprinted surface. The material to be embossed is fed through these rollers which in turn apply pressure to the material, causing the surface to take on the pattern of the roller. Dies are similar in that there is a flat surface and an imprinted surface and they are pressed onto the material to create the embossed image. Yet dies are used on a single piece at a time, but can be used over again to create the same image. Deformation of the surface occurs as the material under pressure conforms to the pattern of the roller or dies. In some cases, heat can be applied to the part marking process as well to ensure the malleability of the material being embossed as it is fed into the rollers. Embossing machines, like engraving machines, result in consistent precision and minimal variation between results of each process. Even high production runs yield consistent embossed images or patterns. Manual embossers require the assistance of a machine operator feeding material into the rollers and are used with softer materials such as papers or plastic.

Other embossing machines use mechanical, electric or hydraulic power to create greater pressure and so are used for harder materials such as metals which are more resistant to surface deformation. The rollers for embossing machines are typically made from a metal such as steel which is able to resist wear and tear due to continuous usage, and is able to maintain a precise pattern after repeated use. Common materials used in embossing include aluminum, brass, copper, steel and galvanized steel, zinc and more. Embossing can be used for decorative purposes to create images or patterns on objects, or for identification and informative purposes. For example, a common use of embossing is on credit and debit cards with the raised numbers and letters providing information about the cardholder. Indent marking dies are used widely to identify and mark motor vehicle components, tools and other metal parts. Depending on the type of material being embossed, the imprinted or patterned die will require replacement, or re-imaging after a certain amount of use. Even the toughest metal will be affected by repeated embossing. Handheld embossing with marking tools is not common in industrial applications, but it can be used when the purchasing of a die would not be a cost-effective solution, or when unique results are desired on each piece.
