Point-to-point embossing rolls come with precision alignment gears
Matched male-female embossing rolls are among the most precision-oriented rolls in the converting world, requiring precise attention to alignment for consistent image reproduction on a variety of substrates. PRS includes a set of precision gears that hold each set of rolls in alignment and correlate with the desired pattern and depth.
PRS, which also produces standard and custom calendering equipment, is an industry leader in pattern development and engraving rolls. Also known as pin-to-pin embossing rolls and point-to-point embossing rolls, matched male-female embossing rolls can extend up to 40 inches in diameter with a maximum face length of 200 inches.
Matched male-female embossing rolls may require custom equipment
PRS builds embossing rolls for existing equipment and has the capability of designing and building new equipment specific to the roll configuration. Towel, tissue, foil, and film are some of the more common substrates used with matched male-female embossing rolls, with specialty materials and other substrate options feasible for most roll sets.
In addition to roll engraving, Industrial Engraving is an industry leader in pattern development. Digital transfer technology (DTT) creates patterns for matched male-female embossing rolls without the cost of tooling. Our experts can manipulate the pattern electronically so it fits the roll diameter perfectly, minimizing the turnaround time for most patterns.
