Single or double form rolls and inking train when run one to
several revolutions in contact with the master before the
print is made, gives a high quality print with cleaner back-
ground as well as more completely filled-in image areas than
the continuous run printing.

Consequently, in order to give a better fill-in in image
areas in the direct printing mode, a better distribution, re-
duce history and provide a smoother surface to the ink, it is
proposed that the ink train including the ink sump be inde-
pendently motor driven and speed controlled, Mter the
master has passed the ink form rolls, a cam and switch will
trigger the ink train to run at an optimum control speed un-
til the plate returns to the upper form roll at which time a
cam and switch will cut the power to the ink train by an
electric clutching arrangement reducing the ink train speed
to the master speed.
