Best price for performance

Using the latest electronic platforms, injection modeling tools and professional design Index Braille has made it possible to combine high performance and an attractive price. Braille Box is a masterwork from Index Braille, giving our customers what they have asked for in high volume production printer.

Low Noise Level

Previously, good dot quality has always resulted in a high noise level. Now this has changed. Braille Box is the first single sheet Braille embosser that is completely sealed off. This combined with a muffled ventilation gives a surprisingly low noise level. Braille Box can be placed in an office environment, making no more noise than an ink printer.
