Index Basic D Embosser V5

Product Code: 14-010

An optimised design and effective production reduces the price and size of a high speed double sided Braille embosser by 60%. The combination of low price, high speed (340 PPH), high quality, ease of use and small size, makes Basic the best choice for homes, schools, the work-place and Braille production centres that prefer to use continuous tractor fed paper.

The Basic is controlled by an ink and Braille labeled front panel. Combined with the speech feedback it is easy to install and operate for blind and sighted users alike.


  • Braille quality: Equally formed dots that will last for a long time even if thin ”copy paper” is used. The design of the forming process reduces the risk of holes and cracked dots. A cracked dot will have a limited life time. The capability of producing Braille on thinner paper is an important step in reducing costs, and is also environmentally beneficial.
  • Double sided Braille: The double sided function not only reduces the quantity of paper by 50%, but also costs and amount of work involved when binding, mailing, storing and handling. With Basic-D you can combine double sided printout and graphics. It will automatically format the page so that the graphics do not interfere with the text.
  • Speech guided user interface: Blind and sighted users are guided equally by speech feedback, together with the ink and Braille labeled front panel. The speech is available in a number of languages.
  • A 2400 pages/day copy machine: The copy function, in combination with the tractor feed system, and a 400 page text buffer makes Basic-D an effective Braille copy machine, producing up to 2400 pages during an 8 hour working day.
