Eagle Systems, Inc., a U.S. based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, today announced the completed installation of its Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system at the manufacturing operations of McLean Packaging Corporation in Moorestown, NJ. The Folding Carton Division in Moorestown is revered for their production of high-end paperboard and plastic folding cartons and lids, tag and label applications, rigid and flexible windowing, specialty hot stamping and embossing, as well as silk screening. The Eagle Cold Foil System was installed in mid-December, and now operates in unison with the company’s Manroland 700 press.
The Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system is a value-added finishing technique for cold foil applications. The add-on system can retrofit to new or existing 70cm up to 200cm sheet-fed offset presses from most major press manufacturers. It offers users the flexibility to apply a single 102cm width of foil or multiple widths of foil, in any combination, as narrow as 5cm. This ability greatly reduces foil cost and consumption. In addition, the cold foil system operates on about the same amount of electricity as a 1,500 watt hair dryer, reducing energy demands in production environments. This year, Eagle Systems has added the ability to use a 16,000k foil roll which allows for less change over during a job run.
