Eagle Systems, a U.S.-based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, has announced that Glenmore Custom Print + Packaging (Richmond, B.C.) has successfully completed the OEM’s Eagle Cold Foil Certification Course (ECFC). The comprehensive, 8-hour program is not only geared towards improving production understanding and techniques for press operators, but includes executive management – ensuring that each Eagle Cold Foil user garners both higher quality and greater ROI. “We first installed our Eagle Cold Foil Systems in June of 2015 and it’s lived up to every promise made by Eagle President Mike King,” said Glenmore Operations Manager Stefan Congram, a 15-year veteran of commercial printing. “We’ve learned to not only respect Mike but trust him. When he suggested the class, we knew we’d reap significant benefits. I come from quality operations and I know the difference between good-enough quality and customer-ecstatic quality. Eagle has not only made cold foil extremely successful in our production operations, but after only a year, it’s a critical component.” In mid-July, Eagle conducted the ECFC at Glenmore’s Richmond, B.C. facility. The press staffers now have an in-depth working knowledge and understanding of the cold foil process. The result? Every shift has produced “faster make-readies and noticeable quality jumps.”
Courses are conducted at the user’s production facility to ensure that all real-world factors and influences are incorporated. Eagle has designed a unique test form to run off each applicant’s system. The press is then finely 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, the ECFC course will yield significant business and cold foil performance advancements,” said Eagle Systems.
