Platen Press

 

a printing press in which the printing apparatus consists of two plates. The printing form is attached to one plate (the bed), and the other plate (the platen) presses the sheet of paper to the form. Platen presses form a relatively small group of small-format, single-color, sheet-fed relief presses. They are used for short printing runs.
