Overview of Our Braille Sign Making Machines
ADA compliant braille engraving has never been easier to do with our latest range of braille sign making machines. The reliable and precise nature of our rotary engravers by our partners, Vision, together with the easy-to-use braille software can make quick work out of any project. To better understand the benefits of using your own Vision engraving machine for all of your braille signage needs, we will explore our engravers in this article.
Why Vision Engravers?
Vision Engraving and Routing Systems is a leading manufacturer of quality engravers in the United States. Everything is produced right here in the U.S., and Vision have been in businesses as an industry leader for over 36 years. Dealing with a U.S. company means that you are working with local reps that go above and beyond to satisfy your needs.
The success of Vision is built off the back of their reputation for building reliable and long-lasting engraving and braille sign making machines. Many of their first customers are still customers today – some even operating the same machines!
In-House Braille Signage Making and Its Significant Benefits
Outsourcing braille signage is viable if it’s a once-off occurrence, but once you start working with repeat projects where the volume of ADA-compliant braille signage becomes higher, it can become costly. Eventually, the use of your own braille sign making machines becomes fiscally feasible and advised. In fact, it can end up saving your company a great deal of money.
Time is also important. If you run into a situation where you need braille signage quickly, outsourcing the work can be very time consuming. The person you are outsourcing the work to might have several projects lined up, placing you in a queue before getting to your work, which may be time-sensitive.
Ease-of-use is another important benefit of the braille signage machines that we offer. Vision machines have come a long way over the 36 years they’ve been manufactured for. Today, the software that comes standard with every machine allows even an amateur to complete a project with professional precision, which is important when signage needs to be ADA compliant. The text required will be automatically converted to braille with the correct spacing and bead depth placement.
The machines we supply from our partners, Vision, are built to last. You can expect to use our machines for years to come, almost indefinitely if you keep them maintained properly. The systems are also durable enough to work on a wide range of materials from soft plastic and wood to metal and stone. There is minimal waste produced allowing the machine to be placed nearly anywhere without any special requirements such as venting.
One Machine, Many Tasks
An additional and significant benefit to our braille sign making machines is that they can do far more than just braille. The engravers are able to do braille thanks to the braille insertion tool, automatic raster, and braille wizard software, but they are capable of engraving on nearly any surface such as wood, plastic, metal, and stone.
You may already be outsourcing engraving work and many of the same benefits that apply to in-house braille signage also applies to engraving.
