These hardened steel wheels can be utilised in a variety of applications from enhancement to security with exceptional detail. Blind embossing can be produced on some presses and free standing numbering and finishing machines by running these wheels against a thin stick-on disposable rubber blanket at a cost of as little as $1 each, producing many thousands of impressions.
Herben converts the custom artwork for engraving rotary hardened steel embossing dies. The long-life dies can also be made into a two-part die, split and be extended or mixed and matched to incorporate a unique range of patterns to your application.
The basic 5mm wide rotary embossing die fits in-place of the common perforating attachment in seconds to produce a fancy line or company name or logo in a score mode.
According to Herben, the die wheels provide the opportunity to provide clients with a built-in security to authenticate any security job, gift voucher or ticket. Embossing provides security as it cannot be photocopied but can also hold other security functions.
Herben says the security aspect of this system has already attracted a number of overseas prospects to Herben for a variety of applications. Several equipment manufacturers seeing the potential offered by this system have sought to negotiate with Herben for exclusivity. However, Herben has opted to offer the system to the general market offering a standard range of dies with a made to order for ‘special applications’ on request.
