Simply Cartons launches new product with help of Eagle

Eagle Systems, Inc., has confirmed that Simply Carton has installed a Golden Eagle Cold Foil module on their KBA 8-color 106 press. The installation, which was completed in the converter’s expanded 7,500 sqm 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 capabilities.

“For our customers, quality is a critical factor in the success of the project,” said Craig Mather, Chief Executive, Simply Cartons. “For years, we were all about hot-stamping, yet we were carefully watching what Eagle was doing with Cold Foil.”

“Production-wise, we’re experiencing an easy 20% reduction in turnaround time, not to mention savings in die costs and buying lead times,” said Mather. “In just six months, I’d estimate that at least 25% of our customers have already gravitated to applying cold foil enhancements to their projects. Accordingly, we are attracting countless new clients. One of the key influences has also been the environmental aspects of Eagle’s cold foil production and our own EnviraMet Product.”

Simply Carton’s EnviraMet replaces plastic laminate on metalised boards with a coating so that packaging can be easily recycled. Without traditional metalised materials, there is no need for white overprint, allowing for a single printing pass of multiple metallic colors, eliminating the need for offline processes. This saves time, materials, design constraints, and more importantly, the environment.
