Puma VII

The Marburg Embossing Machine

On five continents, in over fifty countries of the world, Marburg Embossing Machines are used to create embossed plates for braille printing. The new version of the Marburg embossing machine PUMA VII is equipped with a complete new control system. The new design and development is based on request of our clients and by our long time experience.

For interpoint printing the plate will be turned at the long side. Therefore only two holes are necessary to fix the plate. All formats are defined and managed via the integrated display. The interpoint adjustment is valid for all formats. Therefore all formats can be changed without new adjustment of the machine. The integrated display allows a quick preview of the file. All received files can be stored in the PUMA VII. So you can reemboss them without a connected PC.

The PUMA VII can emboss standard braille formats as well as formats with user- specific character and line spacing. This may help braille-beginners. The menu is multilingual and can be adapted to new languages.
