Aluminium embossing roller

  1. Mar 12, 2015 #1

    I have a aluminium hand roller for embossing numbers onto aluminium. When I pass the aluminium plate through the roller, I end up with a kind of banana shaped piece of aluminium. Any suggestion on a jig I could add to the aluminium rollers

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I've been toying with ideas but haven't posted them.

    1] You could put guides at the outlet to keep it in a straight line.
    2] You could run it though a second set of rollers. You'd want to ensure the rollers didn't undo all your embossing though.
