The bed is moved with a gear and rack system. In the photo, shot from underneath the press, you can see the gear and the rack of one edge of the bed. The system has two benefits: one, leverage equivalent to a 3:1 ratio (which makes it easy to turn) and, two, the bed moves independently of the rollers so it doesn't take a roller pressing on it to make it go.
Setting the pressure is easier with the Galleon's new synchronized pressure screws. A miniature chain links the two pressure screws so when you turn one, the other one turns with it. This way the pressure on one side of your printing plate is the same on the other; the top roller is kept parallel with the bed thanks to the chain link.
