  • This tutorial demonstrates using low and high-pressure NIP pressure gauges to set the cylinder pressure on the press. Uniform pressure is critical for consistent and uniform printing. Most presses are over pressed, and this unit allows the units to have minimum pressure that still provides good ink transfer. This is critical to minimize friction which minimizes heat and reduces electrical usage.
