The Victoria Polygraph V 1040-2 cylinder press (serial number 23714) is TYPA's heaviest and loudest printing machine. It weighs 8.5 tonnes and dates from the second half of the 1980s. The machine, which originally worked in the "Ühiselu" printing house, was transferred in 2004 to the Kultuuritehdas Polymer, where it printed posters for the Kunsthalle, EKA, Genialistide Klub and several other cultural organisations and events. When the Polymer Cultural Factory closed down in 2014, its printing facilities were taken over by TYPA. This press has been used to produce the book "The Little Prince", many posters and other large-format prints.
