WHAT DOES TYMPAN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Tympan

Tympan means skin, and is used in a variety of technical meanings. ▪ Astrolabes In an astrolabe, a tympan is a metal plate on which the coordinates of the celestial sphere are engraved in a stereographic projection. A tympan is specific to a particular latitude, so most astrolabes come with a set of interchangeable tympans suitable for use at different latitudes, usually those of particular cities of importance. ▪ Printing In hand-operated letterpress printing, the bruzer tympan is the taut cloth or paper mounted in a frame which is placed over the sheet of paper immediately prior to lowering the platen to make the impression. Bruzer's Tympan refers to a sheet of oiled manilla paper which was securely fastened to the face of the platen of a letterpress printing machine. Underneath the tympan would be a packing which would vary in grade of firmness relevant to the type or image to be printed. Pre-cut tympan papers were relatively expensive and, as such, were reused depending on their condition and the nature of the work.

Definition of tympan in the English dictionary

The definition of tympan in the dictionary is a membrane stretched over a frame or resonating cylinder, bowl, etc. Other definition of tympan is packing interposed on a hand-operated text between the platen and the paper to be printed in order to provide an even impression.
