Mutoh’s Braille Printing machines – XpertJet 461 & 661UF

Currently, Braille signs are made in several ways including laser and rotary engraving, photopolymer, cast metal, raster braille (spheres/beads inserted into drilled holes). All of which take a lot of time and some of which are not “custom signage” friendly or cost effective. With a UV-LED printer one can quickly start producing custom Braille signs in house to open a whole new income stream – often times selling to existing customers who already need to add compliant signage to their buildings.
