Kluge Announces Strategic Alliance with Eagle Systems

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

St. Croix Falls, WI - Brandtjen & Kluge, Inc. today announced a strategic alliance with Eagle Systems to jointly market Eagle Systems equipment solutions to the printing and packaging industries. 

Under the terms of the agreement, Kluge will actively promote the Eco-Eagle Cold Foil and Cast and Cure systems. The systems are a value-added finishing solution for cold foil applications. The add-on system can be retrofitted to new or existing sheet-fed offset presses from most major press manufacturers. It offers users the flexibility to apply a single full press width of foil or multiple widths of foil, in any combination, as narrow as 2- inches. This unique 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. 

The Eco-Eagle system provides the benefits of high-quality performance and reliability, as well as efficiency and cost effectiveness. Spot or overall foil coverage is printed inline and then overprinted at standard press speeds. The process uses standard printing plates and features setup times of less than 10 minutes. Eco-Eagle is completely automated thereby eliminating the need for operator/machine intervention.

"Kluge and Eagle are pioneers in delivering world-class equipment solutions for the application of foil in the printing and packaging industries," said Michael Aumann, CEO, at Brandtjen and Kluge.  "Eagle Systems has defined the cold foil market with their Eco-Eagle Cold Foil technology. We are thrilled to enter into this alliance and help our customers experience the benefits of Eagle Systems technology."
