The lithographic press is made in the dimensions chose individually by the client. The dimensions of the press bed (table) are treated as a criterion of the press size. We offer two kinds of the lithographic press - the stationery one and that, which is fitted with two shelves, designed for the printing products, tools, etc. The press bed (table) overall dimensions are available in the range of 400 600mm to 750 1300mm. Moreover, there is manual drive with the length changeable crank handle. The gear ratio range of the toothed gear transmissions varies between i=6 and i= 12(24). The lower working roll is made of the thick-walled steel pipe (the external diameter o170mm and the thickness of the wall b=17mm) with the braces welded inside, and the bearing journals with the diameter o35mm. The lower pressure shaft is bearing on the roller bearings situated in the dustproof mounts, what causes, that the efficiency of a machine is very high (the shaft rotates slowly). The press bed (table) is made of the impregnated wood in timber form on "a leaf spring" with the thickness 30 ÷ 50mm. Depending on the press size, the maximum pressure of the skid varies between 600 and 1200 kG. The travelling of the skid during "the closing"s of the press is h=30mm whereas the range of pulling out of the skid is s=80mm. The maximum distance from the skid edge is H=150mm. The construction is made of the welded, thick-walled and cold-rolled metallurgical profiles. The finishing touch is to paint the press, rustproof coat or every other color selected by the client. If the dimensions of the press bed are 750 x 1300mm - the press weight varies between 85 and 250 kg 
   1. It is a possibility to assemble the hydraulic cylinder pressing the skid (fitted with the adjustable downforce) , to the press with the large overall dimensions of the press bed (table)..
  2. Upon request, there is also a capability to make the steel rubber-lined shaft with the hardness 65 sh, which is fixed variably with the skid. It is used to printing the large black and white or multicolored relief printings.

  The general-purpose ,In intaglio press press gives an opportunity to make graphic copies from steel matrixes (copper, zinc) and printing from the lithographic limestone. That type of press is characterized by the first degree of the general-purpose, what means that it combines features of the intaglio press designed for "steel" with the lithographic one. That intaglio press also allows for printing from steel plates (thickness= 5mm). Furthermore, dismantling the pressure upper roll and replacing it by the attachment type "Lito", there is a possibility for making graphics with the lithographic technique. In order to use both: the working roll and the attachment type "Lito", the main construction requirement is to fitted the general-purpose intaglio press with the "own" press bed, what means that the press table must be the integral part of the machine. The general-purpose intaglio press is made in the same way as the previews ones, namely, in the dimensions chose individually by the client. There is the manual drive this intaglio press with the crank handle. The gear ratio range is depended on the press overall dimensions plus the client's directions and varies between i=6 and i=18. If the dimensions In intaglio pressof the work bench are 750 x 1200mm with thickness g=30mm - the press (including the attachment type "Lito") weights about 300kg. The technical parameters of the general-purpose press are the same as the parameters of the lithographic and the In intaglio press .


  The In intaglio press type "COMPACT" is characterized by the second degree of the general-purpose. It gives an opportunity to make copies in all techniques of the intaglio printing as well as from steel matrixes, the woodcuts, the linocuts and the palstercuts. Moreover, dismantling the upper roll and replacing it by the attachment type "Lito", the press transforms into the professional lithographic press. The working In intaglio press rolls (the diameter o170 mm) are made in tolerance +/- 0,05 mm and are cinematically coupled - what lets to make the accurate and multicolored graphics. The exerted pressure of the pressure roll is being smoothly regulated and fluctuates between 0 and 7000 kG. The pressure of the In intaglio press and lithographic press skid varies between 0 and 1000 kG. The maximum height of the pressure roll is 100mm (max 200mm). The maximum distance of the lithographic skid from the table's surface is 150mm, whereas the skid stroke during pressing down is 30mm. The range of the skid lowering is 80mm. There is also the manual drive with the crank handle. The gear ratio range is depended on the press dimensions plus the client's directions and it varies between i=6 and i=18. If the dimensions of the table intaglio press (the press bed) are 750 x 1200mm – the weight of the press with the attachment type "Lito" is 350kg. Because of the construction requirements, the intaglio press type "Compact" is built only with the integral press bed (table)..

The intaglio press is designed for printing the large graphics by the relief printing with use (changeably with the lithographic skid) the gummed steel shaft (hardness 65 sh).
