Embossing is the process of impressing raised or depressed designs into sheet metal, often by passing the sheet through roller dies or large presses.

Our vaporizing foil actuator (VFA) tool can be used to emboss fine features into thin metal sheets using a stationary one-sided die. Features with a depth greater than half the material thickness have been embossed using the small VFA setup. Very fine features can be sharply embossed as seen in the figure below.
