FAG Standard 510

Hi all,

I was just on the cusp of agreeing the purchase and import of a FAG Standard today, when I got a picture of plate which said it was a AP-50-2. It looks for all the world like a 510.

A couple of people have directed me to Dafi’s webpage, which of course I have looked at quite a few times, but I don’t have the wider print knowledge to know the difference between them!


Can anyone work out if the AP would work ok for printing from photopolymer on base plate?

Many thanks for any help!

Kind regards,

Apologies, for some reason this posted twice - I’m hoping someone can delete?


The 510 is a engravers Proofpress, the cylinder packing is limited to 1mm as it is usually a thin rubber blanket, they ad usually a slotted plate in the bed to attach a etched plate.
