Impression Cylinder


An impression cylinder is a crucial component in many printing presses.

It's responsible for holding the paper as it moves through the press and is responsible for the pressure that transfers the ink from the plate to the paper.

The quality of the impression cylinder can significantly affect the final print quality, influencing factors such as the evenness of ink distribution and the precision of the print.
