Central Impression Press

A type of printing press used in multi-color flexography in which a single large-diameter common impression cylinder supports the substrate as it contacts a series of adjacent plate cylinders, which lay down successive colors. Central impression presses can have anywhere from two to eight printing units, with six being the most common. See Flexography: Press Configurations.
