The RP18G is the same format as the enjay RP18D direct drive press, but it is configured particularly for printing of intaglio plates. It is robust, with geared drive and a professional size wheel to take the effort out of printing editions. Pressure setting is enhanced by T-bar pressure screws.

The space above the roller is completely clear to allow felts to flip over easily.
