Patent Model of a Flatbed Cylinder Printing Press

Description (Brief)
This patent model demonstrates an invention for a flatbed cylinder printing press which was granted patent number 111407. Two-feeder (double-ended) cylinder presses were normally limited to full-sized sheets because of the fixed distance that the bed and cylinder must travel. By this invention, a second type bed with variable travel mounted over the main bed made it possible to print smaller sheets.
