Panic Engineering

Innovative Ideas


Panic Engineering has been designing and manufacturing components for a wide range of clients over the past 30 years.

Now we have started to produce our own products in response to clients requesting solutions to problems, or products that they find do not quite do the job they require.

If you are looking for a solution to a problem then we may be able to help.

Here They Are

The new presses are made to a new design that reduces the cost of manufacture but does not affect the way they work,

New A3 Size Etching Presses available soon

As I promised a while ago I would be making some more presses. I have come up with a new way of manufacturing that has cut the cost dramatically

pictures and prices to follow soon. I have been testing the new designs and I am very happy with the results.

Etching Press

I have just sold the last press, I will be making some more. If you are interested please let me know so I can make enough for you all. I will also be making some design changes to make the press even better value.

New Product Under Test

Stone / Plate Lithography Pressure Roller

This is a new Idea for Stone Lithography and Plate Lithography that does away with the scraper bar and the need to use a lubricant.  It fits into the press the same way as the scraper bar does and is only slightly deeper so you can still use all your stones.  The roller is slightly flexible so it can form itself to the shape of the stone (as no stone is ever completely flat).  The prototype is being tested at a well respected art college over the summer of 2017, so it will be getting a real world test.  I will be posting updates during the test, but if this may be of interest to you please feel free to contact me.

New Products

Bramble Hook.

A new product from an idea by Richard Lawson  With a few changes to the original design the bramble hook is a very efective way to cut brambles, so easy that it can become addictive so be warned! They are only available from Richard,  so give one a go.
