New System to help Moorestown Division to produce more jobs that “jump off the shelf”
Moorestown, New Jersey - 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. For more product information, go to www.thefoilexperts.com.
“I congratulated Eagle Systems on their outstanding performance in installing our new cold foil machine,” notes Joseph Fenkel, McLean Chairman & CEO. “What impressed me the most was how hands on Mike King and his staff were in servicing and installing the system. Eagle allowed us to start producing cold foil in a very short period of time [two days]. When they told us it would be in operation by a certain date they were true to their word and made sure it happened. We have been very happy with the quality of the cold foil coming off the press.
“We’ve built our position and reputation in the marketplace through innovation, core efficiency, and our ability and willingness to communicate with our customers. We are constantly striving to stay ahead of competition via better design, and of course, better technology. After investigating five or six alternatives we found Eagle Systems. Their technology will enhance our packaging capabilities, while producing products that we envision will jump off the shelf. Eagle will give us that significant competitive industry advantage.
“With the speed of the installation and the very short learning curve, we’re already well into the marketing stage of our implementation plan. We’ve developed a customer introduction booklet that demonstrates our new capabilities and increased quality achieved by Eagle’s perfect registration. There are so many advantages to Eagle’s cold foil system and we’re aiming to exploit them all. For example, cold foil is recyclable, enabling us to be that much more efficient and cost effective with material expenses. And printing on Mylar enables us to expand our reach and serve new client needs.”
“Simply stated, we’re always looking to do things better. Has it worked? Over the last seven years, we’ve realized growth of more than 50%. And our investment in Eagle is just the beginning. In the next two years, we plan to invest in new equipment to the tune of $15 million.”
The Eco-Eagle Cold Foil System
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.
