KBA North America has forged a partnership with NJ-based Graphic Art System through which KBA will retrofit and equip its presses with cold foil machines.

“I am delighted that KBA has chosen Graphic Art System to provide our Eco-Eagle cold foil machine as a package with their printing presses to those clients seeking a cold foil solution,” says Michael King, president, Graphic Art System.

The environmentally-friendly Eco-Eagle cold foil machine is economical, drawing less power than a hair dryer to operate.  It has the ability to run unlimited multiple narrow webs of the same size or different sizes, or one large web depending on the job. The Eco-Eagle is operator friendly and requires no mechanical, electrical or computer adjustments.

Recently, KBA installed an Eco-Eagle cold fold module on a new KBA Rapida 106 41-inch sheetfed press at Unigraf, a commercial printer located in Warsaw, Poland.
