Cameron etching presses
For engrave professionals
From 80x125 to the large-format 122x240, this range of etching presses has been designed for artists who want just one incredible press.
A robust and reliable press. With no distortion or warping. Has large diameter rollers that do not distort either the plate or the paper.
Its hand wheel operation and a 1:25 reduction drive makes etching a true pleasure.
SIts traction to the top roller and the extraordinary hardiness and strength of all components will give your prints those nuances and final touches that are simply impossible to obtain with lower quality presses.
The NONIUS or vernier scale is a second auxiliary scale that have some measuring instruments, which allows to appreciate a measurement with greater accuracy by supplementing the divisions of the ruler with the scale circular of the vernier.
The CAMERON presses include this new precision toolwhich will help the artist to have more control over the pressure of the engraving with an accuracy of tenths of a millimeter.
Bakelite is a material composed of overlapping layers of Kraft paper impregnated with phenolic resin. It is extremely hard and very suitable for engraving.
Since 2020, the Cameron model presses -except 40x60 and 60x90 models- now incorporate a stainless steel plate that protects the bakelite.
CAMERON model etching presses are delivered assembled or dismantled anywhere in Europe. The price does not include transport or installation, which must be hired separately if needed.
If the press will be placed at ground level and through a door, it can be easily moved by a pallet jack or even by two or three people pulling it over the floor.
In some cases, transport by crane can be hired to lift and put the press through a large window, thus avoiding having to dismantle the press.
A CAMERON press will have to be dismantled if it does not fit through the door, or if it needs to be moved to a higher level, with stairs for example. In this case, we will send you an instruction manual, and we provide full free telephone assistance to help you with the assembly so that you do not have to hire an expert, thus making the product more expensive.
Dismantling and assembling a CAMERON press only requires a set of spanners and another hex key, and does not require any special adjustments. However, the help of two (or preferably three) people will be needed for placing the top roller in its housing.
CAMERON presses are designed for easy assembly and dismantling by their owners. If you would like our technicians to install it for you, an estimate will be provided in advance and invoiced.
Please ask for an estimate for each specific case.
