Automated Braille Tray

New to BrailleBox V5 the door has shifted from manual, to automatic by simply pressing the DOOR key on the front panel of the embosser.

Noise Canceling Design

As a self-contained unit, BrailleBox’s low noise levels are suitable for any working environment.

Optimized for booklet on large papers

BrailleBox V5 is designed for printing braille in booklet formats on A3 paper (folded to A4 braille books) and 11×17 inch paper (folded to letter size braille books). As a result of the focus on booklet format the measured printing speed is now increased to 900 A4 single sided pages per hour (equivalent to 225 A3 papers per hour), a 30% increase from BrailleBox V4. Printing booklet format on 11×17 inch paper gives about the same printing speed. BrailleBox V5 may supports 11×11,5 inch double sided and on B4 double sided and booklet (Japan paper size). The efficient printing speed on this paper is lower than 900 pages per hour. This because less hammers are used and more time are used for paper handling.

Internationally renowned design winner

“How should a Braille printer be experienced? BrailleBox is a masterpiece of industrial design; it is beautiful by touch, sound and observation by the eye. A thorough and consistent outcome to a difficult design challenge; inclusive with clarity and elegance, BrailleBox creates both user experience and export success.”
