German term or phrase: Druckzylinder
From a German patent on a multi-color offset press.

I have found 'impression cylinder' and 'printing cylinder'. Is any one of these terms preferable?

Many Thanks
Chris

impression cylinder


Explanation:
sorry, I didn't give you a good translation the first time. My dictionary lists impression cylinder for Buch, and printing cylinder for reproduction. I can't help you with which one is better for your context.

printing cylinder


Explanation:
as your patent text deals with offset printing, impression cylinder is out because it's a book printing cylinder
'pressure' cylinder is not a cylinder in a printing press (at least not process)
