How large collotype can print depends on the size of machines.
Visitors of our Collotype atelier often get impressed by printing machines which have long been used. Currently, Benrido collotype atelier has six hatbed cylinder press machines. And most of them have been used for more than half a century.

From this side, Machine5 (introduced in 1973), Machine4 (transferred in 1988), Machine3(1959), Machine2 (1964). We also have Machine6(1960, not in the picture)
All were made by Mitani Factory in Nagoya.

This is the large size Collotype print machine (introduced 1995,Hirose factory).
We call it “Dax”.

Except Dax, the largest size collotype machines can print is basically:

508×609.6mm=20×24inches

Gelatin plate.

Things that larger than the plate cannot be printed, of course.

The largest size “Dax” can print is 24×48 inches (1200mm×600mm)

A gelatin plate for “Dax” is big like above.

To make larger size than above such as facsimiles of cultural heritages, paste some papers together and make a larger picture.
The best example of that is Horyu-ji kondo Wall Painting Original size facsimile.
