Eagle Systems, Inc., a U.S. based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company a U.S. Patent (#9,358,776) for a “Method for Using a Foil on a Printing Press and Optimizing the Maximum Usage of the Foil.” The publication date is June 7, 2016. Essentially, the patent is for the use of foil, and the process in optimizing the usage of foil in commercial printing.
“For Eagle, this is a day of celebration,” stated Eagle president and CEO Mike King. “The patent protects our unique fully-automatic cold foil module and process on commercial printing presses, and the company’s foil-optimization methods of using foil stocks more efficiently. We are extremely excited, especially when you take into account the extent of the patent pending process. Our dedication to the industry and especially the sciences of cold-foil becomes validated with this announcement.”
For Eagle Systems, the patent pending has been going on for several years due to the progression and detail that has gone into the technological intricacies of what many believe is the most sophisticated and reliable cold-foiler in the world. This patent finally protects the company’s many years of dedication and resource investment into this defined yet expanding market. For founder Mike King, research and development began as far back as 42 years ago, and today Eagle is a global and respected leader, with installations in just about every major printing-savvy country in the world.
Truth from the Trenches
“How many vendors tell you they’re going to make you faster, better, and more profitable… and then do it? But that’s we’ve come to expect from Eagle Systems,” notes pressroom supervisor Gary Reyes for D’Andrea Graphic Communications, an Eagle customer since December 2013.
“We first installed our Eagle Cold Foil systems in June 2015 and it’s lived up to every promise made by Eagle President Mike King. We’ve learned to not only respect Mike but trust him. Eagle continues to prove that they’re indeed one manufacturer that cares enough to ensure we’re maximizing our capabilities and ROI with their system,” notes Operations Manager Stefan Congram, Glenmore Custom Print + Packaging.
“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. The Eagle system has been rock solid for our production department… We now view cold foil from a whole new perspective and anticipate even greater rewards for both Marrs and our customers,” adds Scott Marrs, Vice President, Marrs Printing and Packaging.
