Best Graphics Completes Busch Pile Turner Install In Pacific Northwest, Closes New Sale In Pennsylvania

 

 

Best Graphics Complete Installation of Busch Pile Turner In Oregon, Secure New Order for Busch Pile Turner In Pennsylvania – 

 

Last week, Best Graphics (Milwaukee, WI) installed one of our new Busch SWH series Pile Turner-Aerators in the Pacific Northwest. The Busch SWH Speedturner series includes aeration, jogging, alignment and pile rotation capabilities. This Oregon-based Commercial Printer also opted for our uniquely designed “pressure control flaps” to help preserve the “air bubble” within freshly aerated pallets. Best Graphics competed against Heidelberg-Polar for this Pile Turner order.

Built in Germany with a 40-year+ manufacturing legacy, all of our Busch Pile Turners incorporate state of the art Siemens electronics and include our industry leading 3-year parts & labor warranty.

 

 

Best Graphics is the exclusive North American importer, distributor, and post-Sales parts & service provider for Busch Pile Turners. On the other side of the country, we secured another new SWH 90 RLA Pile Turner-Aerator order from an established Printer in Pennsylvania.

 

This Sheetfed, Digital shop opted for a Busch Pile Turner with air, jogging, alignment, and skid rotation technology. They also elected to receive our optional “ionized air” technology, which aids with thicker U.V. coated stocks and/or unique materials, such as plastics, which have a tendency to build up static.

Are you looking to improve your Pressroom productivity while increasing employee morale? Look no further, give us a call: (800) 236-7603!

Best Graphics Installs Osako Saddle Stitcher In Midwest, Takes Muller Martini On Trade

 

Best Graphics Installs an Osako Micro 6/C Saddle Stitcher with Warranty, Receives Secondhand Muller Martini Bravo T 6/C Trade In – 

 

Best Graphics (Waukesha, WI) completes a successful sale, delivery, install, and training of our Osako Micro model automated Saddle Stitcher in St. Louis, MO.  Manufactured in Japan, with a 100-year history, Osako is exclusively imported, distributed, and supported in North America via Best Graphics’ sales, service, and parts personnel.

 

The Osako Micro model is one of three automated Saddle Stitcher offerings within Best Graphics’ product portfolio. The St. Louis, Missouri-based Commercial Printer opted for a (6) signature feeder, (1) cover feeder configuration and a Lake Image camera system for signature recognition, and booklet verification. The Micro series supports 14″+ spine lengths, up to 3/8th inch book thicknesses, and production cycles up to 9,000 per hour.

 

 

New Osako Saddle Stitcher sales include our industry leading 3-year parts & labor warranty, installation, and training. In negotiations with this Midwest Web- and Sheeted-based Printer they opted to trade in their secondhand Muller Martini Bravo T Saddle Stitcher. As part of our commitment to providing “turn key” solutions, our Service Department began dismantle of the 2005 vintage Muller Martini Stitcher on a Thursday afternoon, completed removal by Friday and began install of the Osako Micro Saddle Stitcher – in the same location – first thing Saturday morning. Come Monday morning this automated Saddle Stitcher was ready for operator training, and commercial production. The above is an example of Best Graphics’ attempt to reduce customer downtime during the transition from outdated, mechanical Muller Martini technology to modern day, automated solutions.

Ibis Variable Data, Variable Page Count Saddle Stitcher Installation In Florida

Best Graphics, Ibis’ North American Sales Agent, Sell an Ibis Smart-binder 2 Saddle Stitcher for Variable Data, Variable Page Count Bookletmaking – 

 

Best Graphics (WI) have secured a Smart-binder SB 2 Saddle Stitcher order from a large, multi-facility publication printer. This unit will run “near line” behind an unwinder, inline sheeter, and a Hewlett-Packard HP PageWide digital web press.

 

 

After the HP PageWide digital web press engine prints variable data onto roll-based paper, the product moves over to a near line unwinder with inline cutting (“web cutter”) capabilities to produce 4-page signatures. Because of the digital print technology of the HP PageWide, each 4-pager can convey unique data, text, personalized information. The digital press also provides a 2D, a 3 to 9, or comparable barcode on each page. These are read by cameras, allowing the data to reverts back to the Ibis Smart-binder’s central controls, thereby determining how many 4-page signatures (per book) are to be scored and fed into the Ibis gathering, collating section.

 

Once the pre-determined set of signatures makes a completed booklet – variable in page count, and variable in data – a cover is matched to the set before Hohner stitch heads wire staple the book. Thereafter, the book is three-sided trimmed (to remove any unnecessary barcodes).

 

 

 

Recognized for their reliability, 100% verification guarantee, and low-cost of ownership, this will be the 11th Ibis Smart-binder high speed, variable page saddle stitcher purchased by this long standing Ibis-Best Graphics’ account.

 

Interested in learning more about our Ibis Smart-binders? Prefer to feed the unit via flat sheets (pile fed)? Or, want to produce booklets inline with your digital print engine? Curious how to produce booklets without wire staples? Ask us about our patented Ibis Smart-binder SB 3 model that manufactures booklets with spine glue (for easier mail insertion)! Our sales, service & parts departments are here to help! Contact us today.

Dual-Clamp, Dual-Gear Box Itotec eRC-160DX Paper Cutter

 

The extended warranty, and heavy-duty construction of our Japanese built Itoh paper cutter will compliment the existing 41″ flatbed die cutter-blanker, and B1 size format pile turner-aerator Best Graphics perviously supplied to this premier plastics printer in 2017.

More Commercial Printers Choose Osako Saddle Stitchers

 

 

Southeast, and West Coast Commercial Printers Invest In New, High Speed Osako Saddle Stitchers from Best Graphics! 

 

Best Graphics (Waukesha, WI) the exclusive U.S. distributor, and post-Sales support for the Japanese line of high production, automated Osako Saddle Stitchers places machines at Commercial Print facilities in Florida, and Nevada.

 

Installed just outside Jacksonville, FL a North American Top 400 Printer looked to Best Graphics for their latest Saddle Stitcher investment. This Sheetfed & Digital outfit purchased a compact footprint, (6) signature feeder, (1) cover feeder configured Osako Micro to replace a Muller Martini Saddle Stitcher. With an extended machine warranty, delivery, install, training and money to spare, Mike, the shop owner opted to also purchase a Rima Stacker. The installation and training was carried out by Best Graphics’ service department. 

 

 

Featuring a color touch screen for job makeready assistance, an automation package that reduces job prep to mere minutes, and productivity that’s currently exceeding Florida’s previous Muller Martini Stitcher by three times the output, Best Graphics are pleased to have another satisfied customer join “the family”! We are now in conversations with their team about a 41″ Young Shin flatbed Die Cutter with Stripping for Q4 2019, Q1 2020.

 

On the other side of the U.S., a Las Vegas, Nevada Commercial Print operation has just purchased one of Best Graphics’ mid-tier, automated Osako Estar Alpha Saddle Stitchers. Configured as a (6) station, (1) cover feeder design, this 10,000bph Osako Estar Alpha included a 4th & 5th knife for 2-up bookletmaking, a Busch waste removal system, delivery, installation, training, and an extended machine warranty.

 

 

Featuring our Osako OT-2000A fully automated three-knife trimmer, where preset jobs are “pushed” from the Osako’s main, color touch screen to the trimmer intelligently, all motors, belts and yoke timing adjusts automatically. In combination with our automated line chain-to-stitch head positioning, feeder-to-chain timing, synchro start-and-stop, and downstream inhibit technology this Osako Estar Alpha delivers high output, fast job changeovers, and minimizes waste booklets.

 

Deemed surplus, Best Graphics removed a Heidelberg ST series Stitcher with the increased output of the newly installed Nevada-based Osako Estar Alpha. Coincidentally, Las Vegas is pursuing a Young Shin 41″ Die Cutter-Stripper from Best Graphics for year’s end!
