embossing dieRotary embossing systems are tools that have traditionally been used to emboss the webs that form absorbent hygiene products. Typical embossing systems include rotary embossing rolls and cooperating, rotary anvil rolls. Different embossment dies can be fixed to rotary embossing rolls to produce a variety of desired embossment regions for absorbent articles. 

A typical embossed products, such as feminine sanitary napkin comprises a topsheet, absorbent core and backsheet. The latter is usually attached to the topsheet prior to the embossment phase. The attachment of the backsheet to the absorbent core prior to embossment usually limits the depth of the embossment regions, as if the embossment is too deep the backsheet may be damaged during the embossment process, such as by cutting or tearing the backsheet.
