Description

Perspective view of the Scott rotary web press, manufactured by Messrs. C. Potter, Jr., & Co., of New York. It is described as follows by the author:

A double-width press of this kind has printed and folded with two folds 30,000 small folio newspapers an hour. The roll of paper is placed so that it slides into position easily without rising up. The folding is done by rotary creasers; as the knife revolves and cuts off the sheets, the creasers revolve and fold them. The sheets are printed, cut, and receive the primary folds without the use of tapes or belts.
