Friction Drive Presses

These well made presses make light work of all kinds of pressure printing such as intaglio and relief printing in particular; lino, letterpress, etching plates, and wooden blocks. Professionally manufactured from cast aluminium and fitted with 80mm diameter steel pressure rollers giving a press force of 1000kg, each press is fitted with a gearbox working to ratio 4:1 which makes the handle turn more easily. Will print plates up to a maximum of 18mm. Oiling or greasing the moving parts of your press from time to time is vital to keep it running smoothly.

We also offer replacement plate beds and felt blankets for these presses.
