German term or phrase: Druckformzylinder
Another cylinder from the multicolor offset printing press.
As translations I have found 'form(e) cylinder', 'printing form cylinder', and 'printing cylinder'. Can anyone with printing-related experience shed some light on this?

Thanks
Chris

Form cylinder
Explanation:
On conventional offset presses, this cylinder is called "plate cylinder", but in your case, plate cylinder seems to be the wrong term.
