The press comes with several options; casters and a wooden shelf under the press. For the American market the press can be equipped with a 120 Volt AC single phase motor. The press can also be equipped with a hydraulic pressure system. This allows to set pressure on the press by means of a hand pump. This system makes it easy to set pressure, the pressure is guraranteed the same on both sides of the press and the pressure can be read on a gauge.
A rotating blanket system is another option. (standard with 3 mm thick pressed felt)

The JWE-series presses are designed for heavy duty use in, for example, graphic studios. Construction is similar to the JPVE-series, the differences having to do with heavier production needs. Like all of our intaglio presses the upper roller is spring mounted making it suitable for relief printing. Shims of leather or cardboard can be placed under the spindles, thus providing more flexibility during printing. The hard synthetic bed plate runs, without play, between adjustable right angled guide strips which are mounted to the side frames.Delivery; We prefer to ship this press assembled, even if this means disassembling it to facilitate delivery.

This press has the following features;

  • driven by electric motor, 230 V,(110V or 380V optional) 0,75 kW, single speed,
  • control panel included left, right, stop button (JWE-series)
  • electronic safety-system on top roller, operated by lightsensors. Light beam interruption shuts off motor. (prevents entering of fingers between cilinder and bed). A protection system is required by law, under CE regulations. This electronic protection system complies to CE standards.
  • motor automatically shuts off at both ends of bed

Description of several options:

Here above the JZM-150 etching press with casters. The JWE-80 can (optional) also be fitted with casters (with brake).

Here above the JW-100 with wooden shelf. The JWE-80 press can also be fitted with a wooden shelf. This creates extra space under the press, for storage of paper.

The JWE-80 can be fitted with a hydraulic pressure system. The image shows the hydraulic pressure system of a JWEVH-120 press.

The hydraulic system is the best system to realize:

  • Pressure setting is very easy
  • Guaranteed the same pressure on both sides of the press.
  • The pressure can be read on a gauge. That makes it very easy to duplicate the parameters like speed and pressure.

This system is much more accurate than reading the position of the pressure spindles. The position of spindles is just an indication of the pressure. This system tells you exactly what the system pressure is.

The image shows the JZE-100 press with a rotating blanket system. The JPVE-80 press can be fitted with the same system. A rotating blanket system makes printing easier, especially with large sheets of paper and if there is only one person operating the press. But it allows only one layer of felt. For normal etching that is fine, but if there is a lot of relief in plates this system is less suitable.
