U.S. Display Group Invests In Barberán Digital Press

Simply Cartons, Nottingham, UK, has installed a Golden Eagle Cold Foil module, produced by Eagle Systems, Inc., a U.S. based developer and manufacturer of foil enhancement equipment, on the company’s KBA 8-color 106 press. The instal- lation, which was completed last August in the converter’s expanded 7,500-square-meter facility, has enabled Simply Carton to launch EnviraMet, a new recyclable foil branded solution designed as a sustainable alternative to traditional metalized boards, as well as to revitalize their post-press ca- pabilities. Eco-Friendly Cold Foil Simply Carton’s EnviraMet replaces plastic lam- inate on metalized boards with a coating so that packag- ing can be easily recycled in the home. Without traditional metalized materials, there is no need for white overprint, allowing for a single printing pass of multiple metallic col- ors, eliminating the need for offline processes, according to the company. This reportedly saves time, materials, de- sign constraints, and more importantly, the environment. With numerous applications in mind for the cosmetics, fragrance, food and luxury drink, horticulture and health and beauty markets, EnviraMet is made possible by Ea-

gle Systems’ advanced cold foil system tabbed “Golden Eagle”. Eagle’s new system offers newly developed fully automatic features, as well as the “Eagle Cares” package complete with auto-doors and an on-going video feed. At the console monitor, the operator can view stop and start Eagle Systems President Mike King (L) and Simply Cartons’ Chief Executive Craig Mather finalize the installation of a Gold- en Eagle Cold Foil module on a KBA 8-color 106 press with a handshake.
