Photo Gallery - Restoration by Howard Iron Works Restoration Team

At any given time, our Restoration Team works on several projects simultaneously.  For historical and archival purposes, our HIW photographer diligently takes pictures during the restoration and documents the various processes each machine is being put through.  We have compiled the photos in a photo gallery for each machine.  We hope you enjoy them.

We offer our restoration services to others, and will also complete machines that can be either purchased or leased for use or as beautiful displays

Schnellpressenfabrik AG., later to take the name of its hometown - Heidelberg, was instrumental in designing the world’s most popular automatic platen press. Affectionately known as the “Windmill” for its two flying grippers, the Tiegel (small platen) revolutionized printing by automatically feeding and delivering paper at 6 times the speed of a “hand fed” version.

T Platen was first introduced at Bugra 1914 Exhibition in Leipzig, and since then more than 165,000 platens were manufactured. Our T Platen represents one of the last T platen presses made, as the production stopped in 1985.

Featured here is the restoration of the 1985 Heidelberg T Platen Press.
