Litho Press Information

Floor Model Lithography Press Pressure SystemPressure System:
Our pressure system utilizes the finest quality hand machined parts, guaranteeing the printer the best mechanical advantage, ease of operation, and trouble free use. Features include 1" diameter hardened steel pins, custom machined connecting rods, piston and pressure cylinder, and permanently lubricated fiberglide bearings. The system will accommodate stones and plate backers ranging in thickness from .25" to 4.125".

Press Bed:
Three inch thick, staggered grain, hard rock maple wood is the core of our press bed. All wood sections are relief cut according to manufacturer's specifications to eliminate bed warp. Steel pins, 3/4" inch in diameter, connect bed sections. The top of the bed is covered with a neoprene rubber stone cushion. A galvanized steel cover is installed over the cushion which resists the chemicals used in the printing process and provides a durable working surface. Bed stops secure the moving press bed to the press frame. This feature is a must in today's safety conscious work environment. To eliminate uneven printing pressure and stone breakage, the bed is supported by independently adjustable precision ball bearings. This results in absolute parallelism between the bed and drive drum.

Frame Unit:
.188" wall steel tubing is bolted and welded for maximum strength. Metal Inert Gas (MIG) weld method is used. This provides the strongest and cleanest weld available. The lower frame unit may be fully disassembled if necessary.

Drive Drum:
Welded drum shaft, support baffles, and heavy wall drum stock are machined to precise specifications as a concentric unit. Maximum drum shaft support is achieved by two self-aligning ball bearing support units. All drums are nickel plated.

Bed Drive System:
Effortless hand cranking is made possible by our double reduction chain and sprocket drive system. Motorized drive systems are also available.

Floor Model Litho Press Bed Latch SystemLocking Press Bed:
Our Bed Latch System locks the press bed into the inking position. Leaning against or bumping the lock bar while inking will not cause the lock system to release. Hand operated models only.

Bed Stops:
Secures the moving press bed to the press frame and allows full bed printability.

Floor Model Lithography Crank Handle SystemCrank Handle System:
A spring loaded clutch, mounted in the crank, allows the printer to disengage the clutch while the press bed is manually moved into or out of the inking position. This eliminates injury by a spinning crank handle. Hand operated models only.

Floor Model Lithography Press FinishFinish:
All press parts are protected by nickel plating, anodizing or high durability powder coating. The powder coating is a custom metallic silver-vain. However, other colors are available for an additional charge.
Custom Color Presses are available for an additional charge.
