BraillePlace is our highest volume double-sided paper embosser. It produces Braille on traditional Braille paper at a speed of 300 characters per second, or about 1,000 pages per hour.
The BraillePlace was designed from the ground up to be a high-production paper embosser that produces high-quality double-sided Braille. It is not a combination of several smaller double-sided embossers combined into an enclosure to achieve high-speed Braille production status.
Even though the BraillePlace is built for speed, it is surprisingly quiet because it is built into a self-contained steel, free standing enclosure on casters. In fact your whole box of traditional Braille paper is stored inside the embosser while it is in operation.
If you require high-quality Braille, in a high-production environment, then the Braille Place is the embosser for you.
