Midwest Multi-National Purchases New Young Shin 1040S Die Cutter

 

Best Graphics Earns Iowa-based, Multi-National’s Flatbed Die Cutter Business with Sale of New, High Speed Young Shin 1040S – 

 

Best Graphics’ South Korean Built Young Shin 1040S Flatbed Die Cutter with Stripping

 

A North American multi-national, headquartered in Canada, has selected Best Graphics (Milwaukee, WI) as their partner of choice for their latest expansion into high speed, flatbed die cutting. Their Midwest location, in Iowa, has recently acquired a 40.94″ Young Shin 1040S model with stripping. This 1040-S unit was from our stock inventory – here in Milwaukee, WI – shipped for immediate, and was up-and-running on Iowa’s floor less than 7-days from original deposit down!

 

Young Shin is a South Korean manufacturer of flatbed die cutters, blankers, and foil stampers. Celebrating their 35th year in business, our Young Shin partners have recently expanded into a third production facility to keep up with global demand.

 

Nearing 100 North American installs to date, the Young Shin brand is officially “here to stay” in the hearts, and minds of Commercial Printers, Trade Finishers, and Carton-Packaging Houses. Backed by a 24-month parts & labor warranty, our Young Shin models are designed with all the robust engineering qualities rigoruous North American clients demand: 330 U.S. tons of cutting pressure; a heavy, 19 ton machine weight; 7,500sph run rates; centerline chase technology; a large operator touch screen; non-stop delivery; and access to post-Sales service, parts and supports via our team of domestic service technicians, and domestic parts inventory. That’s right: American staff members, domestic phone numbers, parts on the shelf, and manuals in English.

 

Tired of plunking more money into your old, legacy Bobst SP 102-E? Did that Taiwanese Yawa, Brausse, or SBL Die Cutter look attractive at first glance, but you’ve been kicking yourself in the foot trying to get it going? Were you caught up in Heidelberg’s Dymatrix sales pitch, but now are asking yourself “where can I get service support for this machine?” Switch to Young Shin, and the Best Graphics boys – you deserve better!

Florida Can’t Get Enough of Our Omega Folder Gluers

 

Multiple Omega Folder Gluers, at Multiple Florida Packaging Companies, Have Just  Installed!

 

Best Graphics, North American Distributors of Omega Folder Gluers

 

Best Graphics Group (Milwaukee, WI) has recently sold, and installed (2) Omega high speed, automated Folder Gluers to Commercial Print and Packaging companies in Florida. Manufactured in Europe, one Omega Folder Gluer installed at a Commercial Printer with a growing Folded Carton business segment, while the other Omega Folder Gluer installed at a Packaging facility’s brand new plant in combination with one of Best Graphics’ South Korean built Young Shin 41″ Flatbed Die Cutters with Stripping.

 

Best Graphics have been importing, and selling the Omega line of Folder Gluers, and Carton Packing equipment since 2015. Omega, well known as a growing competitor to Bobst Folder Gluers, has beeb manufacturing Folded Carton, and Corrugated Folder Gluing lines for almost 40 years. Their continual focus on Folder Gluer reliability, price, and customization has allowed Omega, and Best Graphics to capture marketshare in the rapidly growing North American Folded Carton market.

 

Best Graphics installed a 300 meter/minute Omega Intro 110 Folder Gluer for Straightline, Auto-bottom, and 4- & 6-corner cartons in Orlando, Florida. Our Intro series can be purchased with Carton Alignment, Motorized Carriers, and Carton Packing technology. Our Siemens touch screen controls, automation, and servo-backfold system make this Omega Folder Gluer very user-friendly for Commercial Print facilities. When compared to a Bobst VisionFold 110, Best Graphics’ Omega Intro 110 Folder Gluer allows Packaging Printers more length for complex folds, and thicker machine side frames at a more affordable price.

 

Best Graphics installed a 400 meter/minute Omega Allpro 90 Folder Gluer for Straightline, and Auto-bottom cartons in Miami, Florida. Our Allpro series can be purchased with Carton Alignment, Motorized Carriers, Carton Ejection technology, and Carton Packing equipment. Like the Bobst “Gyro” module, only offered on the Bobst Masterfold Folder Gluer, Omega offers a “Turnpro” module for friction-less folded carton product rotation with re-register section for beverage carriers, tear strip cartons, and other unique folding and gluing applications.

 

Omega Folder Gluers compliment Best Graphics equipment portfolio of Young Shin Flatbed Die Cutters, Young Shin Foil Stampers, Young Shin Die Cutter-Blankers, and our Laserck line of Offline Blankers with patented, automatic downstacking technology. Selling directly to Commercial Printers, Trade Finishers, Print Packaging and Luxury Folded Carton manufacturers, Best Graphic Group’s 41-year history as equipment sales, service and parts suppliers makes us a reliable name within the Canadian and U.S. Die Cutting, Finishing, Packaging, and Folded Carton markets.

 

Have a used Bobst Domino, Bobst Media, Bobst Amazon, Bobst Fuego, or Bobst Alpina Folder Gluer? How about a used AIM Signature Folder Gluer? Is your old Jagenberg Diana Folder Gluer, or your legacy International Right Angle Folder Gluer killing your Folded Carton throughput speeds? Call Best Graphics’ sales team, or make an “Online Submission” to talk about how you can trade in your old, pre-owned Folder Gluer for an automated, high speed Omega Intro, Allpro, Alius, or Magnus today!

Best Graphics Brings Clients to Chameleon’s Rochester, NY Facility

Have you outgrown your Kluge, or Moll, “Legacy Gluer?” Do you frequently pass on bids because your equipment can’t achieve the speeds and flexibility to run both Carton and Mailing jobs?   Sick and tired of re-doing make-readies after every machine jam? Frustrated by the limitations of where your “Legacy Gluer” can cross, and plow, fold? Have you ever wondered how in the hell they do those “Iron Crosses!?” Look no further, the Chameleon Line of economically prices Gluers is the innovative solution for you!

Best Graphics Group_Chameleon Finishing Solutions

Chameleon’s 31.5″ Working Width Model “800MXX”

Do you prefer hot melt, or cold, glue? Do you need a machine in 25″, 31.5″ or 36″ in working width? Do you prefer a machine with 7 feet of transport section, or 15 feet!? Are you in need of friction fed Feeders to Tip/Affix product, or do you need Pack Smart Feeders for uniquely shaped P.I.s requiring tighter registration?

Friction Fed Straight Shooter | Chameleon Finishing Solutions

Could you use an extra Crossfold Plate, or would you prefer “Bump Turning” product 90 & 180 degrees? Would you like an inline Score/Perf module at the Pre-Feed, or do you want a heavy Compression Delivery for the extra tough substrates?

Convertible Compression Delivery | Chameleon Finishing Solutions

No need to worry! Chameleon can provide you with all! Every system is unique! No two machines are assembled the same! Call it “Carte Blanche,” ’cause it’s supper time baby, and everything on the menu is available!   So, let’s recap. Does the idea of a Chameleon make sense? Of Course! Benefits we see as advantageous for our clients: 1)      Small Footprint – Space constraints are an issue for every shop 2)      Wider Scope of Machine Capabilities – Pocket Folders, Mailers, Bump Turns, Tipping/Affixing Cards, etc. 3)      Faster Speeds – Clients have run product in excess of 90k an hour (!) . . . 4)      Shorter Makereadies – The “Bridge & Beam” design allows for quick access to the Plows placed in infinitely adjustable positions 5)      Less Machine Downtime – Due to Chameleon’s Continuous Top Load Feeder (vs. a “Legacy” Gluer’s Pile Feeder)   So what are you waiting for? Give us a call and schedule your demo today? Can’t break away to see the machines in action? No problem! Send us samples, we’ll run them for you, and ship ’em back!   In the meantime, take a moment to review our Model 800MXX in greater detail via our www.BestGraphics.netweb listing:
