TYPA's oldest museum item is a cast iron hand press and the model was created by German entrepreneur Christina Dingler in 1837. His press was the most successful print device in Europe during the beginning and in the middle of the 19th century. Although Dingler itself called the press "Zweibrücken press" after the German city the press was built in, it became famous in Europe with his own name. These kind of presses are often called Gutenberg presses as they resemble the presses that Johannes Gutenberg built in the middle of the 15th century. TYPA's Dinglerpress bears a serial number 1318 and is made in years 1837-1858. The press is used in TYPA every day for tours as well as workshops.
