Positive Counter Form
to a Die
An embossing counter pressure die is the positive counter form to a die, the negatively engraved or etched metal embossing die.
This metal embossing die is the prerequisite for the manufacture of a counterpressure die. It is attached to the foundation of the printing or embossing machine.
By applying our PRÄGO counter die material PRÄGOPLAST, PRÄGOHART, PRÄGOPASTE and PRÄGOTHERM to the opposite machine side of the metal embossing die and by the mechanical action of the machine’s pressure strength, counter dies can easily be manufactured for different fields of application.
A relief embossing is created by the mechanical deformation of the paper or cardboard by means of a metal embossing die (matrix) and the embossing counterpressure die.
