Embossing machine 

The P-FLEX is a versatile embossing machine which is available in two basic versions.

The fully automatic version processes products from pile to pile.

With the manual version, insertion of the products is performed by an operator.

Both machine types can handle all standard products in formats ranging from A6 to A4, whether they be finished or semi-finished products. A consistently high embossing quality can be ensured through the servo-drive assistend embossing process. The machine can be ordered with one or more embossing stations as well as with various other options. These include labelling and the choice between a manual, fully automatic or semi-automatic die exchange system.
