Even after four years of working with an Eagle Systems, Marrs production and executive teams gained even greater insight and understanding of improved cold foil techniques and applications
CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA - Eagle Systems, Inc., a U.S. based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, today announced that Marrs Printing and Packaging, Inc. has successfully completed their Eagle Cold Foil Certification Course (ECFC). Marrs is a family owned and operated service provider founded in 1972. The ECFC is a comprehensive 8-hour program, not only geared towards improving production understanding and techniques of press operators, but incorporates the executive management level, ensuring that each Eagle Cold Foil user garners both higher quality and greater ROI.
The course is conducted at the user’s production facility to ensure all real-world factors and influences are incorporated. Eagle has designed a unique test form, designed for failure, to run off each applicant’s system. The press is then finite-tweaked to maximize performance out of each operation’s adhesives, foils and blankets. One of the end results is the elimination of former process obstacles, such as pin-holing and mud cracking. Regardless of the previous experience level, ECFC will yield significant business and Cold Foil performance advancements.
“We first installed an Eco-Eagle cold foil system on our manroland 700 40-inch six-color UV-equipped press in April 2012. The year celebrated our 40th anniversary in the printing industry and we were eager to mark the occasion by offering our customers something that no one else could. Installing our Eagle system provided the answer to those needs by delivering faster turnaround, reduced costs, and an environmentally-friendly solution,” notes Scott Marrs, Vice President.
“Four years ago Eagle President Mike King told us his machine would do everything he said it would do or our money back. That was what sealed the deal for us and he was true to his word. When Mike approached us earlier this year we were only too eager to hear about their new education program. Cold Foil has been a major success for us and this certification program promises to take our expertise and understanding to a whole new level.
“The Eagle system has been rock solid for our production department, yet the ECFC analyzed and fine-tuned every element of the process. This one-day program promised to elevate our understanding and awareness, and it did. We now view cold foil from a whole new perspective and anticipate even greater rewards for both Marrs and our customers.”
