The used printing presses have the most important role in producing a printed product, the process of printing been a transfer of printing ink to the parts of material to be print and in this way the image or text to be print is reproduced.

For different types of used printing presses: letterpress printing presses, flexographic printing presses, offset printing presses, and gravure printing presses the forces needed to transfer the ink from the master to the material to be print have different values, depending of the printing method used.

Used printing presses sheet fed are used for printing sheets and used printing presses web fed are developed to print web material.

At used printing presses there is a radial flexible layer that is compensating the run out of the cylinder and the variations in thickness of the plate and permit to print on hard substrate. At the used printing presses that are using letterpress printing technology a jacket of several layers of paper and cardboard is mounted on the impression cylinder, at the printing presses that are using flexographic printing a flexible and soft photopolymer plate enables radial deformation, for used offset printing presses there is a radial flexible blanket between the plate cylinder and the impression one that is doing this, at the printing presses that are using gravure technology there is a thick-walled rubber layer on the impression roller that enables this.
