"I have used many different presses and have found Takach to be among the most durable and easiest to operate. I have practiced aluminum plate lithography for many years and know how difficult it is to find ball-grained aluminum plates. Plates such as those from Takach help ensure the success of a lithographic print."

Table Top Litho Press Information

Takach Press Table Top Litho Press Pressure SystemPressure System:
The pressure system on our Table Top Litho Press is designed after our proven Floor Model Litho pressure system. Both utilize the same 1” diameter hardened steel pin and permanently lubricated fiber glide bearings. The system will accommodate two ranges of stone or plate thickness, from 0”- 2” and 2”- 4”.

A pressure lock knob is provided and the scraper bar housing is designed to use our standard scraper bars.

Press Bed:
One-half inch precision ground aluminum plate with a phenolic-resin sheet bonded to the top and bottom surfaces. This provides a press bed and a plate backer in one.

The press bed may be locked in the inking position.

Frame Unit:
Three-quarter by five inch aluminum is paired and machined simultaneously to provide a very accurate and sturdy frame unit. One inch diameter cross bars join the side frames. An aluminum frame provides maximum strength, yet reduces the press weight considerably, making it a more mobile unit.

Effortless hand cranking is made possible by our double reduction chain and sprocket drive system. Polyethylene wear strips attached to each side frame assure minimal bed friction. "See-thru" chain guard covers allow easy inspection of chain lubrication.
