What is Braille? Braille is a system of raised dots that can be read with the fingers by people who are blind or who have low vision. Braille symbols are formed within units of space known as braille cells. A full braille cell consists of six raised dots arranged in two parallel rows each having three dots.

The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requires all public places (except government buildings and churches) to install ADA compliant signage that includes tactile lettering.

What are the advantages of LED UV Braille embossed printing? Why choosing Braille production printers? Braille LED UV technology is useful for all individuals, especially due to its ability to print raised dots in order to create Braille tactile signage for those with visual impairments. This technology provides an easier solution to making Braille applications signs, panels, keyboards for computer or other devices such as electronic calculators.

This way, LED UV printing gains the purpose of providing assistance for individuals with vision problems.

Whereas the traditional Braille embossed printers that were made only for this purpose and which are slower and produce noise, LED UV platforms ensures high productivity at a fast pace. Moreover, LED UV printers are suitable for home or office use, even in small spaces.
