B. 1., a corporation of Delaware Application April 9, 1937, Serial nn asssz 8 Claims. 21. 101-179) In high speed web perfecting rotary presses with each other at the required distance apart where quick drying inks and web drying units are and they are also preferably located in substanemployed, it is very desirable that the several tially the same horizontal plane. units be so located with respect to each other An oil ofiset mechanism l l of a well known or as to produce the best results while occupying a app ved form ay b sed for the P p Of 5 minimum amount of space, keeping the packing clean on the second impres-' The object of my invention is to so locate the S 11 cy der 5 and e inat g ot Only Smut printing and drying units and the web supply that might be caused when the web is not abroll that the web can be fed and printed and the solutely dry, but will also remove from the pack- 10 inks dried with a minimum travel of the web. ins any dri d parti l s f nk t at may be picked 10 My invention comprises, generally, first and off by the make-ready when receiving the imsecond multicolor printing units and first .and D si om the S co p n n unit. second drying units, each printing unit consisting The first drying unit is herein represented as of an impression cylinder and a plurality of form compr '3 large heating cy der d W10 15 cylinders (in the present instance four form cylsmall cooling cylinders l3, ll. 15

Itwill alsobeundersmodthat anywell known or approved quick drying inks may be used in the printing units.
From the above description it will be seen that I have provided an arrangement of the several units of the press whereby the inks on the freshly printed sides of the web may be thoroughly dried with a minimum travel or the web, the form cylinders of the two printing units at the same time being so positioned that ready access thereto may be obtained.
It is evident that various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the several parts without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention, and hence I do not intend to limit myself to the embodiment herein shown and described.
What I claim is:
1. In a web perfecting rotary press, first and second multicolor printing units, first and second drying units, the first drying unit being located between the first and second printing units and the second drying unit being located beyond the second printing unit, each printing unit comprising an impression cylinder and a plurality oi iorm cylinders arranged around the side or the impression cylinder opposite a drying unit, a web supply roll, and means for leading the web therefrom through said units. 7 y
2. In a web perfecting rotary press, first and second multicolor printing units, first andsecond drying units, the first drying unit being located between the first and second printing units and the second drying unit being located beyond the for leading the web therefrom through said units.
3. In a web periecting rotary press, first and second multicolor printing units, first and second drying units, the first drying unit being located between the first and second printing units and the second drying unit being located beyond the second printing unit, each printing unit comprising an impression cylinder and a plurality of form cylinders arranged aroundthe side or the impression cylinder opposite a drying unit, said printing and drying units being located in line with one another and in substantially the same horizontal plane, a web supply roll and means for leading the web thereirom through said units.
