Small Table Top Etching Printing Presses is applied by lowering the upper pressure drum onto the press bed using the pressure adjusting screws. Micrometer pressure dials are supplied with press to allow consistent pressure application and repeatability. The upper pressure drum is raised for relief printing. It has press bed which half-inch blanchard ground aluminum tool plate with a phenolic-resin sheet provides a durable work surface. It provides very high pressure without embossment problems or loss of printing pressure, and cleans up easily. Uneven printing pressure is eliminated by adjustable precision ball bearings supporting the bed. Bed Stops secure the moving press bed to the press frame. It design allows full printability of press bed. An aluminum frame provides maximum strength and reduces the press weight making it a more mobile unit.
