In-Line Press

A printing press connected directly to any of several finishing operations, such as stamping, die-cutting, sheeting, creasing, folding, etc., so that the printed substrate does not need to be demounted from the press and remounted on the finishing equipment.

The term in-line press also refers to a multi-color press in which all the color stations are mounted in a straight horizontal line, rather than in a circle around a common impression cylinder or in a vertical stack.

An in-line press is also kown as a tail-end printer or a tailprinter.
