Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Printing"

The meaning of "Printing" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does produce printing plates ready for the presses. mean?
A: Got it.
Yes, you could say “have the printing plates ready for the presses.”
But, the question is... are they asking you to have them ready or to produce them (to manufacture them)?

Also, the text above means this to me: “make printing plates that can be readily installed into the printing presses.”

Does that make sense?
Q: What does single printing mean?
A: What sentence is it being used in?
Q: What does first printing mean?
A: There is a lot going on so I will try to keep it simple. Printing in this sentence is a verb that is acting as what we English speakers call a “gerund” - basically a verb that acts as a noun (like “businesses”). It could refer to a book, a poster, or anything else that needs to be printed (I’m not sure based on the context😞). It’s more complicated than that, but I think the important thing to remember is that it is a noun. Hope that helps!!😁
Q: What does the printing process carefully adjusted to avoid streaking using a learning algorithm. mean?

Q: What is the difference between printing plant and printing factory ?
A: a printing factory is essentially the same thing. Only a “plant” typically refers to a factory where something is processed(nuclear power, paper, etc.)

He quit his job at the nuclear power plant to take a better paying job at the paper mill.

Also, from my understanding, a plant/mill is where you have one single commodity being processed start to finish. A factory could potentially have multiple commodities being processed.

A factory could also just be storage. So a plant could be a factory but a factory isn’t always a plant.

I'm copying a bunch of handouts right now, but if you can't wait, you can interrupt to copy it/that.

I'm not sure whether to use "it", or "that" at the end, it depends on the situation.
