Glossary of Printing Terms:
Hermann, Caspar (1871-1934)

A pioneer in offset printing.

After Ira Washington Rubel came out with the first offset printing press in 1904, Hermann converted book printing rotary presses into offset printing presses, beginning with the one he produced for the Harris Automation Press Company in Niles, Ohio.

The first German offset printing presses were manufactured in the same manner starting in 1907.

Hermann also designed the world’s first rotary offset printing press, which was patented in Germany the same year, and the so-called satellite printing system in 1922.
