Eagle Systems Launches Cold Foil Certification Program to Improve Production
OCEAN, N.J. — May 12, 2016 — Eagle Systems, Inc., a U.S.-based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, introduced the Eagle Cold Foil Certification Course (ECFC). The comprehensive eight-hour program is not only geared toward improving production understanding and techniques of press operators, but incorporating 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.
The first Eagle customer to successfully pass the certification course was Packaging Graphics of the Matlet Group in Providence, R.I. Packaging Graphics is a leading manufacturer of high-end consumer packaging. Eagle installed their cold foil system in late 2014 in unison with the company’s manroland press. Earlier in 2016, on Saturday, February 13, Eagle President and CEO Mike King conducted the full-day course, which was initiated with two hours of classroom training followed by six hours of direct on-press interaction.
“The Eagle Cold Foil System has been a very successful investment for Packaging Graphics,” notes John Gaffney, Packaging Graphics president. “The Eagle system’s performance was consistently strong, and yet the certification training and education was able to fine-tune every element of the process. It simply made a good thing even better. This one-day program promised to elevate our understanding and awareness, so we invested an off-day for future gains. Looking back, the certification course almost immediately took us to a whole new level of cold foil proficiency. Eagle has been a dedicated partner in our success.”
“It ensures each customer is not only using the best cold foil tool, but performing with preeminent techniques and the highest cold foil standards anywhere," notes King. "It makes us more valuable to our customers, our customers more valuable to their clients, and it’s what brand managers and owners increasingly demand. With the goal to have every Eagle Systems user certified by the end of 2017, ECFC will ensure a new standard in cold foil is quickly achieved.”
