The “Rolls Royce of Platens” we are selling a beautifully newly restored letterpress platen.
Platen size 14.25 inches x 18.875 inches 36 cm x 48cm
New single phase motor fitted, original motor still working and comes with it.
The key feature of these machines is that they employ a ‘parallel platen’ approach. The platens are not hinged (like most other presses), but runs on rails in the vertical position. This ensures that impression is even over the face of the forme. Inking is by a rotating cylinder at the head of the machine — rather than an inking disk. The Autovic platen is the British made version of the Victoria Heavy Art Platen by Frank F. Pershke which were also made by Rockstroh-Werke AG of Heidenau — Germany. Forme Inking is by means of three rollers: two are in contact with then forme on the way ‘down’, and the third roller is engaged with the forme only on the way ‘up’. There are two additional rollers in the inking mechanism for ink distribution.
