The sticking of a model ibuprofen-lactose formulation with respect to compaction force, punch tip geometry and punch tip embossment was assessed. Compaction was performed at 10, 25 or 40 kN using an instrumented single-punch tablet press. Three sets of 'normal' concave punches were used to evaluate the influence of punch curvature and diameter. The punches were 10, 11 and 12 mm in diameter, respectively. The 10-mm punch was embossed with a letter 'A' logo to assess the influence of an embossment on sticking. Flat-faced punches (12.5 mm) were used for comparison with the concave tooling. Surface profiles (Taylor Hobson Talysurf 120) of the upper punch faces were obtained to evaluate the surface quality of the tooling used. Following compaction, ibuprofen attached to the upper punch face was quantified by spectroscopy. Increasing punch curvature from flat-faced punches to concave decreased sticking. Altering punch diameter of the concave punches had no effect on sticking when expressed as microg mm(-2). The embossed letter 'A' logo increased sticking considerably owing to the probable concentration of shear stresses at the lateral faces of the embossed logo.


The deformity in the bony contour of the forehead following the osteoplastic flap procedure on the frontal sinus, termed embossment, occurs in a small but definite number of cases. This complication arises from the combined processes of resorption and deposition of bone following disturbance of the periosteum in performing the operation. A simple and highly reliable method of cosmetic correction employing acrylic cranioplasty has been successfully utilized in a series of cases without complications. The details of the operative technique will be outlined.

This embossment standard inker (pocket style) is used to make seal impressions suitable for photocopying or faxing. The inker is pressed lightly onto the raised impression and an inked image is produced. Available in black ink only.

The raking color seen in the prints is the result of using an airbrush at an oblique angle against the ridges created by the embossment. She would spray a few layers of paint, wait for them to dry, and then proceed. In some cases when the paper got wet, it began to undulate. Auerbach wanted to record that change, which resulted in a topological record.

This is a technique that allows to achieve an effect of hot stamping and embossing in just one pass (mostly high embossing). The main advantages of this solution are very little time consumption and flawless matching of hot stamping and embossment. These dies are made of brass in combination of epoxy patrices.

Embossing refers to the raised lettering, numbers, or symbols on the surface of a bottle, which are used for a number of reasons. The practice of bottle embossing is typically used as a means of appealing to customers, as the raised bottle surface entices customers to touch the object, which in turn entices them to buy it. Embossments also individualized a product and has been a standard practice for nearly 400 years. An embossment could inform consumers what was in a bottle, where it was coming from, and even the date it was bottled. A good example of this practice is shown in Figures 3 and 4, the pepper sauce bottle embossed with September 28, 1875, which is presumably a date of manufacture.

Embossments add an understated, yet dramatic, touch to your invitations. An embossment is created from pressing, at high pressure, a metal die into the stationery (similar to the dies used for engraved lettering except without the ink).

The actual embossing press run on the item adds $72 for the first 100 impressions and $12 for each additional 25. If you ordered 200 invitations, the cost for adding an embossment to all of them would be $120.

Embossing a vinyl wrap film is an excellent way to create a unique head-turning finish. It is nothing complicated to do. (You can check our previous article Handling embossment on vinyl wrap film to learn the craft) However, it is the removal process that you should think about in advance.

If you jump right into embossing without thinking ahead, it is going to be a nightmare for you when removing those pieces underneath. Here are a few things you should consider before creating an embossment:

For embossing, wrappers tend to choose calendar or reflective vinyl film. The former has a lower price point. However, the latter is thick and can be stickier. Thus, using a reflective film to create an embossment can help you get a distinct edge and make the design stand out even more.

Whether you use a calendar or reflective vinyl to emboss a vehicle wrap, it will take time to remove them completely. The more complicated pattern or design you have, the longer it will take to finish the job. Thus, you might want to think about what graphics or signs you need for the embossment.

The resin product developed by The Spearhead Group enables clients to make highly calibrated, real-time adjustments to packaging designs without the lag times and upfront costs of traditional glass embossment, as well as having the malleability of resin at their disposal.

"Our real breakthrough has been to customise the label application technology for clear resin, and to make it a viable and wholly flexible alternative to glass embossment on larger surfaces. It really has opened up a world of possibilities for our clients."

Ultrahigh sensitivity and wide detection range are critical for flexible pressure sensors in the further application of electronic skin and wearable electronics. Here, a flexible pressure sensor with rGO coated on a micro cone array was fabricated. By using the molecular dynamics simulation to investigating the formation mechanism of rGO, its optimized micro-morphology can be obtained and understood for improving the performances of sensors. Both an ultrahigh sensitivity (133.003 kPa -1 , 10 kPa -1 ) were remarkably achieved due to the multiple sub-hierarchical morphological embossments within interfaces of rGO. Furthermore, the designed sensor using rGO with embossments enables several practical applications, showing a fast response time (27 ms) in child door lock monitoring and a distinct step-shape response in robotic arm load monitoring, respectively. And no frequency dependence under loading is also observed obviously. In addition, micro-pressure monitoring, including heart beat (excellent robustness over 10000 cycles) and vocal cord vibration (sound track), can be monitored clearly owing to embossments morphology of rGO as well. The simulation model of sub-microstructures on rGO shows that the embossments can build the multiple contacts within the interfaces for higher signals output. The designed sub-microstructures of rGO can be an effective strategy to afford superior performances of pressure sensors for universal applications in physiological signal monitoring and physical motion analysis.

The active surface of the box and/or the clamp may include embossments or like projections. Embossments are generally relief portions of the surface which are raised in the direction of the cable. Typically the height of the embossment exceeds or is very close to the thickness of the outer sheath of the cable. Examples of an electrical box with such embossments can be seen on the back wall of the electrical box in U.S. Patent No. 4,316,999 and on a curved surface of a spring finger in U.S. Patent No. 2,556,977.

When a clamp is tightened to a surface containing these embossments however, the outer sheath of the cable may be damaged due to the pressure of the clamping force on the electrical wires. The relief portions of the embossments may pierce the surface of the non-metallic sheath, thereby damaging the electrical cables.

The clamp is typically a planar clamp tightened against a wall of the box to secure electrical cables therein. The clamp is typically tightened with a torque in the range of approximately 10-35 inch-pounds, but may be more or less depending upon the circumstances. This pressure, in combination with the embossments and the flat shape of the clamp provide a hostile environment for the sheathed cables and often lead to damaged cables and results in improper electrical connections.

As mentioned above, the embossments of the prior art suffer from several deficiencies. The deficiencies are especially apparent when the embossments are used in conjunction with a compressive force which is necessary to store electrical cables, particularly cables with an outer non-metallic sheath. The compressive force in combination with the height of the embossments leads to damage to the cables.

Create citation alert 1757-899X/263/3/032022 Abstract The horizontal in-plane shear interaction between the profiled cold-formed steel decking and concrete over is the prime factor that determines the strength of a composite concrete-steel deck slab. The control of slippage between concrete and steel is the most vital part to curb the central deflection. The means to reduce the slippage thereby to improve the shear interaction includes the provision of shear studs, ribs, embossments and other means. In this paper, the study on presence of embossments in steel sheeting and the effect of various parameters such as size, shape such as rectangular, square and circular, and the alignment of embossments, in the shear capacity and ultimate strength of the composite slab using three-dimensional computational finite element modeling is presented. It is found that change in shape, size and alignment of embossments is affected in the shear resistance of the composite slab.
