This press can be used for a variety of printmaking methods both relief and intaglio. The frame is made from cast aluminium and fitted with two 80mm diameter steel rollers. Variable pressure can be applied evenly to the upper roller from each end, and the lower roller is easily turned by the handle due to the gears. The plate is driven by cogs that catch the teeth on the side of the plate making printing very easy regardless of the thickness of the plate. Each press comes with a printing plate made from a zinc plated steel sheet which is screwed to plywood and moves accurately through the press on guided rollers. Pressforce approximately 1000kg. Comes with one blanket.

We have the geared version in our studio if you would like to come and try.  These presses are constantly developed and from time to time and engineering improvements are made. 

Available in three different sizes:

40cm x 70cm plate 

50cm x 70cm plate
