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 completely new control system and an easily updatable software. The new design and development is based on request of our clients and on our long time experience.

For interpoint printing the plate will be turned at the long side and 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. Due to this, all formats can be changed without new adjustment of the machine. The integrated display shows a quick preview of the file. All received files can be stored in the PUMA VII, so you can emboss them again 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.
