Administrative History: From American Thermoform website: "American Thermoform Corporation (ATC) was founded in 1962 with the introduction of a revolutionary product – the Thermoform 55 Brailon Duplicator. The Brailon Duplicator and its specially formulated plastic-like sheeting material allowed users to create multiple copies of Braille in a remarkably quick manner. Prior to the introduction of this product, Braille documents were produced one sheet at a time using a Perkins Brailler or Slate and Stylus."
