Swell Form Pro Tactile Graphics Machine

The Swell Form Pro machine is a simple to use, yet accelerated production method for creating stunning tactile maps, diagrams, graphics and more! This machine has revolutionized the process of creating superior tactile graphics at production-level speeds.

How does it work?

Zychem has developed special Swell Touch paper that reacts to black ink and heat. When the paper, heat and ink work together, the black areas on the paper will swell. The result is a well defined and durable tactile graphic that can be shared over and over again. Free pre-made tactile diagrams can be downloaded at the tactilelibrary.com.  You can also create your own graphics using a computer and printer/copier, or by using Swell Touch markers to draw custom tactile diagrams on the fly.

Superior tactile graphics faster than ever before

Turn on the Swell Form Pro machine, set your speed setting, and it is ready to process your tactile graphics immediately. Print, copy or draw graphics onto the Swell Touch paper and place it on the conveyer belt with the image or graphic facing up.  With the Swell Form Pro, you can place up to two sheets of Swell Touch on the conveyor belt at the same time, and then continue to manually feed sheets onto it one after the other.  The conveyer belt will feed the sheets under the heating system and drop them into the collection tray. Completed graphics are ready to be touched seconds after they have been completed.

The black elements of the graphics will swell, and the colors will not. Play with colors, textures, patterns and more to create stunning tactile graphics.
