  • Printing Machines and Equipment

A flatbed cylinder press in which the cylinder rotates at a constant speed and in such a way that during the first half-rotation the bed moves forward and the impression is made, the bed returning to its original position during the second half-rotation.


There are, however, single-revolution presses with varying speeds for the bed and/or cylinder, e.g. the Heidelberg cylinder.


  • Équipement (Imprimerie et arts graphiques)

Presse à cylindre à plat où le cylindre assure l'impression pendant un demi-tour et termine le tour à vide. Le cylindre assure donc un tour complet pendant le mouvement aller et retour du marbre.
