Embossing relief rolls

This is the roll on which the desired pattern or relief is engraved or etched. This roll transfers the design onto the material being embossed.

Our embossing rolls are available in various sizes, up to 4800 mm wide and with a diameter of 600 mm. Our experts are ready to advise you on design and embossing. We offer a wide range of products, including single rollers, sets with different materials, and special embossing rolls.

We have developed patented solutions to extend the lifespan of the rolls and improve the quality of embossing. We also have convenient systems for quick adjustment during the production process. With our multi-stage nip selector, the machine operator can easily adjust the embossing to the material.

Sets & systems

In addition to machines and embossing rollers, we also offer complete systems, such as roller sets including cassettes and gears. Our roller sets include embossing rollers with positive/negative or positive/positive structures.

We are happy to provide expert advice on the optimal use of your embossing roller set or on improving customer originals for better reproduction.

Our patented solutions

1. Compensation of Load Alternation

The compensation of load alternation device developed by UNIMATEC is a true milestone for embossing tissue products. By eliminating the bearing clearance in the system, the capacity of the rolls swinging is reduced to a minimum. This increases the service life of the rollers, and the uniformity of the layer adhesion is enhanced considerably. This is particularly important for the flat embossings of up to 0.2 mm as required today.

2. Quick adjustment

The continuous optimization of the embossing process is one of our major areas of focus. The UNIMATEC “pin-to-flat” roller sets with quick adjustment are one of the best examples for this. This system enables you to reproducibly change the embossing gap within seconds.

3. Multi Stage Nip Selector

The multi stage nip selector is a gap setting device with four preset gap dimensions. This helps the machine operator to easily adjust the embossing gap to the material during production.

Embossing counter pressure rolls

The choice of the counter pressure roll depends on various factors such as the type of material being embossed, the desired depth of embossing, the speed of the process, and the specific characteristics of the embossing machines. Counter pressure rolls in embossing can be made of different materials, including steel, rubber, plastic, paper, cotton, and wool.

Types of counter pressure rolls

We are capable of supplying a diverse range of counter pressure rolls.


Steel counter pressure rolls are suitable for applications with extreme pressure and wear.


Rubber counter pressure rolls are popular due to their flexibility, elasticity, and durability.


Simtex™ counter pressure rolls, featuring a specially formulated synthetic fiber, offer superior strength and definition.


Super Elastic™ coating, made from 100% woven cotton, is known for its excellent resilience and durability. It is ideal for intricate designs and has a quick break-in period with minimal maintenance.


Wool coating is ideal for various applications due to its adjustable hardness and wool content. Whether it’s fine or deep designs, wool coating provides precise embossing results.


Combination counter pressure rolls, also known as counter pressure bowls, consist of paper, cotton, and wool. This provides a very soft surface, ideal for embossing delicate materials.
