Little Joe Offset Ink Proofing Press

The economical Little Joe proofing presses for quality control purposes were developed to help offset printers match customer color samples as well to assist ink and pigment manufacturers with their process control. These quality-built and full-featured products help reduce waste and increase quality and profits. They are used for color matching, printability testing and testing color, gloss, opacity, drying, penetration, set off, and rub and abrasion resistance.

Two Models

  • One-color Model H is a small, compact, proofing press especially designed for color matching in printing ink plants and offset pressrooms, affording quick wash-up and change-over from color to color
  • Two-color Model HD speeds up color matching and checking for printability, tack and picking; it also permits making two-color prints to check trapping.

Available Accessories

  • Volumeter used to obtain even coverage of drawdown samples and the proper film thickness of ink
  • Hand brayer also aids in obtaining the proper ink film thickness on the sample drawdown by aiding in a controlled ink application on a substrate using the same amount of pressure
  • Replacement blankets are recommended when ordering the offset proofing press: H3000 and HD3000 are standard compressible blankets for conventional inks, while H8100 and HD8100 are for use with UV inks
  • Standard aluminum can coating attachment as well as others that will work with a variety of other cans and cylindrical items.
