The RP18D is a printmaking workhorse which is configured for A2 format and is able to print intaglio processes. Presses of this configuration are made by all the long established makers. The presses are robust, with direct drive and professional wheels. Bedplates of composite materials are effective, long lasting and safer than steel. An optional stand is available.
