Graphic Art Systems to Educate GRAPH EXPO Attendees on Cold Foil Equipment, RetrofitsSeptember 8, 2011
“We want attendees to see the videos of our retrofit cold foil system running production jobs and samples of what was produced at our national and international customer sites,” says Michael King, president of Graphic Art Systems. “Other firms talk about their capabilities but can’t back up their words and they actually mislead printers. We can talk about what we’ve accomplished and show proof of what we can do. We are a proven, no-risk provider of foil enhancement equipment.”
After two years of research and development, King created the Eco-Eagle Systems, the most advanced cold foil and film casting modules in the industry. “With my 30 years of machine development experience,” says King, “my engineers and I took a totally different approach. We have developed the most successful cold foil machine available today on the market. Our system is extremely high tech and has a very smooth start and stop. It does not create any dust.”
The environmentally-friendly Eco-Eagle cold foil machine is the most economical machine in the marketplace today drawing power less than a hairdryer to operate. It has the ability to run unlimited multiple narrow webs of the same size or different sizes, or one large web depending on the job. The Eco-Eagle is operator-friendly and requires no mechanical, electrical or computer adjustments.
GRAPH EXPO attendees who visit the Graphic Art Systems booth will see and hear about a retrofit cold foil system that is already in production and learn about a cold foil system with advanced features that can reduce production costs. Graphic Art Systems personnel will provide detailed information about successful customer installations that were installed on time, delivered to specification, and helped customers to become industry leaders.
Graphic Art Systems has recently completed the installation of its Eco-Eagle Cold Foil system at DISC, a leading source of specialty packaging solutions, in Hauppauge, NY and a totally rebuilt large-format Bobst SP142E with Eco-Eagle Hot Foil stamping machine for Starcke Ltd., an international post-press processing firm based in Finland.
“Attendees interested in learning more about cold foil should stop by our Booth #663 to discuss how the Eco-Eagle can be retrofit to their existing presses,” says King. “We look forward to meeting everyone at GRAPH EXPO.”
