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!

Best Graphics Triumphs Over Polar for Multi-Piece Purchase

 

Best Graphics Trumps Polar, Blumer for Canada-based, Multi-Facility Commercial Printer’s New Purchase – 

 

Best Graphics are Busch’s Distributor, and Post-Sales Support for North America

 

A multi-facility, high profile Canadian-based Commercial Printer has elected Best Graphics (Milwaukee, WI) as their partner for their recent acquisition of Finishing equipment.  Their team will be receiving Busch B+P High Die Cutting, and Busch KF Waste Conveying solutions. The equipment will be delivering from Busch’s Hamburg, Germany facilites August Wk 1.

 

During the discovery process, the client demonstrated Best Graphics’ Busch line of products, in addition to Polar (Germany), and Blumer (Switzerland) equipment. Ultimately, our technical capabilities, extended machine warranty, and extremely reactive post-Sales support granted us Canada’s trust.

 

A few highlights about the scope of the project and how Best Graphics, our vendor partner, and the end-user worked towards the mutually agreed sale:

 

  • The this large, established Commercial Printer is new to the High Die Cutting space, which allowed Best Graphics to educate them about the viability of tackling a new category of business
  • Due to Best Graphics/Busch’s high volume of output per machine, the Printer was able to close 5-year contracts with their prospective customers, thereby strengthening the ROI on these capital expenditures
  • An onsite factory visit allowed the Printer to understand Best Graphics, and Busch’s infrastructe in greater detail; subsequent discussions for additional machines – in other categories – have already commenced
  • Best Graphic and Busch were able to describe various Printers – Stateside, in Europe, and in Africa – who are fulfilling the same end-user work on Busch Die Cutting machines
  • Quick turnaround times were not an issue, given Best Graphics technical “know how” of air freighting in equipment from international partners
  • Extended 3-year machine warranties gives the Printer, new to this segment of business, the assurance they, and their operators need
  • Best Graphics’ honest, affordable pricing when compared to Polar High Die Cutters, and Blumer High Die Cutters means lower carrying costs, and larger margins for the Printer

 

With a team of Sales Representatives, Service Technicians, and a dedicated Parts Department | Parts Manager, Best Graphics were able to sell 183 machines in 2018. This client is one of the 150 – 175+ machine projects Best Graphics will facilitate in 2019.
