This paper deals with the application to HOE's of the experience acquired by CISE Holographic Labora-tory in the embossing technique of 3D or 2D images. The embossing of HOE's in plastic transparent materials is not able, up to this time, of performing the high diffraction efficiencies associated with HOE's recorded by DCG or photopolymers. However a large number of applications requires the production of great quantity, medium standard, low cost special optical elements to be used in rather complex instruments. Some notes about the embossing process and example of industrial components under development are reported.
