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 The above is an example of Best Graphics’ attempt to reduce customer downtime during the transition from outdated, mechanical Muller Martini technology to modern day, automated solutions.

 

Interested in selling your used Muller Martini Saddle Stitcher? Have you had it with Muller Martini’s high cost service and parts support? Considering an upgrade in your Bindery Department to get more Saddle Stitched throughput? Let Best Graphics help: whether new, used or overhauled . . . we’ve got you covered!

Best Graphics Edges Out Saber for Itotec Oversized Guillotine Cutter Order

 

Best Graphics’ Sells Another Itotec 63″ Oversized Guillotine Cutter – 

 

 

Best Graphics (Milwaukee, WI), in business for over 40-years, is Itotec’s importer, distributor, and post-sales parts & service provider. Itotec (Nagoya, Japan) is a 100-year manufacturer, and the original designer of the double-arm paper cutter.

 

Continuing the success of a recent 160cm (63″) Itotec paper cutter sale in Florida, Best Graphics secured another oversized guillotine cutter order from a custom graphics services company in the Midwest. Focusing on printed electronics, graphic overlays, nameplates, and  other specialty printed products this print facility sought out a guillotine cutter capable of cutting through rigid, plastic substrates.

 

Having inspected, and tested Itotec’s eRC-160DX (63″) paper cutter and Colter & Peterson’s Saber paper cutter, Best Graphics’ were granted the machine sale. This eRC-160DX sale, like our 45″ and 54″ models, was issued with our industry leading 5-year parts & labor warranty.

 

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.

 

Intersted in upgrading your legacy Polar paper cutter? Struggling with the electronics in your Saber cutter? Can’t get service, or parts for your aging guillotine cutter? We can help: Best Graphics has a post-Press portfolio that includes lifts, joggers, scales, paper cutters, air tables, unloaders and waste conveyors!

 

 

Don’t know what to do with your old paper cutter? We take trade ins. Get in touch with our sales team; they’d be happy to help. Call us at (800) 236-7603, or fill out an online submission and one of our sales members will contact you directly!

Best Graphics Sells Another Osako High Speed Saddle Stitcher

 

Best Graphics Beats Muller Martini for Brand New, Automated Stitcher Sale – 

Best Graphics & Osako High Speed, Automated Saddle Stitchers

 

Best Graphics (Milwaukee, WI), the exclusive importer, distributor, and post-Sales service & support for Osako Saddle Stitchers has sold a 12,000/hour, automated Tener Alpha model in Arkansas, USA.

 

This Little Rock, AR Commercial Printer elected to purchase a 6/C configuration complete with our OT-329 “Duo” Dual Three Knife Trimmer. Producing both 5.5″ x 8.5″ 2-up booklets, and oversized 12″ x 17″ single-up wire stitched books, our Osako OT-329 “Duo” allows Printers, Trade Finishers, and Web shops the opportunity to engage the second Trimmer section with fixed 4th & 5th Knife at the push of a button. Jumping from 2-up work back to an oversized 1-up job is just as easy, with the second Trimmer’s yoke deactivated, or disengaged.

 

 

The Osako “Alpha” series offers an automation package within the Stitcher section, the Signature Feeders, the Line Chain/Rail section, and the Infeed section of the Three Knife Trimmer. Operators utilize our color touch screen console for computer guided make-readies, troubleshooting, and size format inputs. Tener Alpha models also include dual caliper — mechanical, and digital — monitoring; “downstream inhibit” for signature misfeed; synchronized start-and-stop technology to reduce signature waste; tilt back (or forward) feeders to better signature placement on the rail; and individual Becker pumps on each Rotary Feeder, or Cover Feeder for better air timing, displacement.

 

Like all Osako Saddle Stitcher sales, this high speed Tener Alpha with (6) Signature Feeders, and (1) Cover Feeder is backed by Best Graphics’ industry leading 3-year parts & labor warranty. Delivery, installation, and training are also included with purchase.

 

Best Graphics also take trade ins. Looking to sell your:

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!

Need a company with a service staff, a dedicated parts department, and nearly three decades as an importer, distributor and installer of Saddle Stitching equipment?

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

 

Best Graphics, Ibis’ North American Distributor, Install 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, Direct Mail-Commerail Printer in the state of California. The unit will be run “near line” behind a Hunkeler unwinder, sheeter, and the first-of-its-kind California-based HP PageWide web press.

 

Best Graphics’ Ibis Smart-binder 2 Variable Page Count Saddle Stitcher

 

Taking rolls, printed on a HP PageWide T240 digital web press, the Hunkeler unwinder will feed a continuous roll of paper into the Hunkeler sheeter, which separates the paper into individual, 4-page signatures before arrival into the Ibis Smart-binder 2. Use of the Hewlett Packard PageWide digital press allows for variable data to be applied to each 4-page signature as needed, ultimately customizing each booklet stitched.

 

Printed on each individual 4-page signature is a 2D, a 3 to 9, or comparable barcode that is read by cameras, which reverts back to the Ibis’ central hub, ultimately ensuring 100% accurate production. When the appropriate amount of 4-pagers required for one personalized booklet is complete, the collated set is released, a cover is matched, and the booklet is saddle stitched and trimmed. Again, every booklet is unique: each page can retain unique data that is highly personalized and be variable in page count from the booklet produced before, or after it!

 

This Ibis Smart-binder 2 installed in California utilizes Hohner stitch heads for booklet-making, and is prepared for future upgrades to accept our patented, spine gluing technology (SB 3). This style of booklet making is preferred by direct mail, and mail house operations that frequently insert the piece alongside other collated material. Existing Smart-binder 3 users, with the patented spine glue capabilities, suggest these booklets lay flatter, and insert more easily than stitched booklets, which have more “pillow” in them.

 

Best Graphics, in conjunction with Ibis, will handle the California installation, training and post-Sales service & parts warranty.

 

We’re thrilled to be partnering with a top 50 global leader in HP productivity, and look forward to growing their direct mail customer engagement.

 

Interested in learning more about how Ibis Saddle Stitchers can support your clients in the healthcare, political, student test score, financial/transactional, church bulletin, and variable data verticals? Contact us.

 

Best Graphics, Ibis: highly personalized. Just. Like. You.

Here was our booth, “prime real estate,” on the corner of “Hwy 1 & Main Street!”

 

2013 BIA Conference_Best Graphics_Indianapolis IN

 

On the second day, we were asked to participate in the “Vendor Rapid Fire Session,” which allowed us the unique opportunity of showcasing our organization’s product range. During the five-minute presentation, I was able to highlight the three key assets of our business that separate us from many of North America’s Graphic Arts Equipment Distributors – 1) Sales, 2) Technical Support & 3) Parts Inquiries. Whether purchasing New, or Used, Best Graphics is your one-stop-shop, full-line Graphic Arts Distributor.

In between the conference’s “Breakout Sessions” we were happy to assist customers – new and old – passing by our booth with equipment needs and production advice.

 

Our hat goes off to Justin Goldstein, the visionary behind the Binding Industry Association’s annual meeting. As always, he did a fantastic job; the 3-day event operated in seamless fashion. We look forward to sponsoring – and presenting (!) – at next year’s conference in Dallas, TX.

 

Check in periodically, as we’ll provide more info on the conference’s scheduled dates as they’re given to us.

 

Have a great weekend!,
