Who is FWP: Meet our Presses: Hank - Heidelberg Windmill


A Heidelberg press with a strong business legacy deserves a name worthy of that legacy. Hank was a name that one of our Instagram followers suggested and honestly we felt that this was a departure from the normal German names that other shops give their Windmills. The name to us conjured up the very blue-collared American who at some point had their hand on this very press giving them a strong, sturdy feel for their machine; run after reliable run. Every spin and movement is a lasting one — one that we can truly rely on. 

Hank is a 10x15 Heidelberg “Windmill” Platen press. Windmill is a unique motion that makes impression after beautiful impression. He glides surely yet gently, producing not only a balanced printed piece but also unique die-cut patterns and shapes for almost anything she is given. We were delighted to adopt Hank into the Farmwood family.
