In the image at the right, you can see the unique gearing design for the press bed, which is polycarbonate with a rack-gear on the edge. This gives non-slip movement, plus a calculated 3:1 mechanical advantage turning the wheel. See all the specifications, click here.
At left, look for the chain which connects the pressure screws on each end of the top roller. This is a stainless steel chain so the user can adjust the pressure with confidence the roller is parallel with the bed and the bottom roller. See all the specifications, click here.
"Roller rulers," which are etched bras gauges attached to both sides of the press' frame near the ends of the top roller, are handy to use as reference when changing settings for different thickness' plates. The Pram can print plates up to 3/4" inch thick down to 22-gauge metal or relief and monoprints on 1/8" material. See all the specifications, click here.
