Improved Plate Printing Press.—

Improved Plate Printing Press.—

An improved plate printing-press has been invented in the United States. The backing or blanket is secured without the aid of bolts or screws, and passes over the form by the motion of the press in operation, so that the blanket need be no longer than the length of the form, and by this means a saving in felt is secured. The press has also another blanket attachment which is secured to the roller without the aid of bolts or screws, and can be quickly adjusted. If any lost motion arises from constant working and causes the backing or blanket to stretch, this can be taken up without disturbing the roll. According to the American Stationer, this press can print a form either for plate or bank-note work, from one line to a full form 20+20in. by means of a double pair of adjustable dogs and stops, travelling on both edges of the bed, the operation being wholly regulated by the press workman. Should it be thought desirable to print from a bare roller, without backing or blanket, this press will do the work.
