Embosser for small hologram runs

GEM-S2 – handy embosser with embossing window of 55x55mm and possibility to put two 90x70mm shims on embossing drum. This unique machine can emboss you one or two shims simultaneously.

If you need to produce up to 200,000 embossed holograms per month – this is your ideal solution.

Embosser was developed jointly with Dr. Andrejs Bulanovs, Soltech Ltd.

Embosser GEM-S2

Embosser for small production or test runs

This Embosser is specifically designed for start-up hologram manufactures needs, but nevertheless it has all what is needed to produce perfect embossed holograms.

Embossing area can be defined separately for each shim, assuring the required spacing between each embossing area. Thus, no mechanical recombination for shims is needed and shims can be electroformed straight from the first electroformed photoresist nickel matrix.

As a result, the embossed hologram quality is higher than that of holograms stamped with conventional embossers. Our Embosser is an ideal solution to produce small hologram runs (100-50,000 psc) with a low manufacturing self-cost.

The system has adjustable temperature and pressure, so it shall be suitable for soft thermal embossing as well.
