New System to Enhance Moorestown Division’s New KBA Rapida 106 Printing Press
MOORESTOWN, NEW JERSEY – November 8th, 2017 – Eagle Systems, Inc., a US-based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, today announced the completed installation of a new 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 August and now operates in unison with the division’s new Koenig & Bauer Rapida 106.

“We’ve been using the Eagle Cold-Foil system since March 2015, when we installed our first system on a Manroland 700 press. In little over a year-and-a-half, Eagle has transcended the traditional vendor relationship and has become accepted as our production partner,” notes McLean Pressroom Manager Rob Watts. “They’ve earned our trust by living up to every claim and promise. Their system simply does what President Mike King says it will, and then some. I have to admit, we didn’t even consider another Cold Foil option. Eagle has earned that much respect within McLean.
With the installation fo the new KBA Rapida 106 printing press a new Eagle Cold Foil system had to be retrofitted to it. “With production speeds up to 18,000 sheets per hour the KBA 106, the fastest press in its format class, we required an Eagle system that processes cold foil at corresponding speeds. With Eagle, every install is not only engineered for the press specs, but also the client’s specific requirements. It makes a major difference,”
“Today, Eagle has enabled us to move well up the production cycle into the development stage. Our clients want us to consult very early in the process and this gives us a major competitive advantage, both in terms of securing their trust and business, as well as ensuring it will match their project expectations and needs. We’ve actually converted many of our clients from hot foil stamping to the many benefits of cold foiling and we attribute this to the brilliance and luster generated from Eagle’s systems. It’s definitely a win-win for our customers and McLean. So much so that we’re now running cold foil every shift, three out of every five days.”
