Everest - The Braille copy machine.
Return to Braille
The Everest is the only high speed (324 PPH) Braille embosser with the function to work
with normal cut sheet paper (80-180 gsm) and produce a Braille document ready for binding
or mailing. With the competitive price, high speed, high quality and ease of use the
Everest is the best choice for homes, schools, the work place and Braille production
centers that prefer single sheet printing system.
The Everest is controlled by an ink and Braille labeled front panel. Combined with the
speech feedback, it is easy to install and operate for blind and sighted users alike.
Using single sheet cut paper is an easy and effective system for Braille production.
With Everest the printed documents are ready for binding immediately after printing.
Everest can be used in an efficient way with any paper similar to that used in other
single sheet feeding systems. There is no need for hand separation, special cutting
equipment for the paper, or even any special paper thus making it a useful alternative to
continuous paper systems.
Everest dot quality is one of the best on the market. It has equally formed dots that
will last for a long time even if thin copy paper is used, and the design
reduces the risk of holes or cracked dots. A cracked dot will have a limited life time.
Using thinner paper is an important step in reducing costs and saving the global
The noise level of Everest is lower than that of most Braille embossers on the market.
Using Everest together with the optional Everest Acoustic Hood reduces the noise to a
level below what is normally is acceptable
The optimized professional design makes maintenance accessible and easy all around the
Speech guided user interface
Blind and sighted users are guided equally by speech feedback, together with the ink
and Braille labeled front panel. The speech is available in a number of languages.
