Electronic board repair
Eagle Press Repairs and Services have been repairing Electronic Boards for over 8 years. Customers rely on the availability of some of the more popular Heidelberg Electronic Boards that Eagle will loan out while their Board is being repaired. Time permitting, Eagle can also advise on turn-around time involved on Boards that are not in stock. Sometimes a weekend is all it takes to get clients back up and running. Common problems are also evaluated with your particular Board and Eagle keeps in stock the exact components that may or may not be special order, further reducing the downtime associated with Electronic Board replacement/repair. Predictable failure is also an issue Eagle can help with. Instead of waiting for a Power Supply Board to fail when you need it the most, schedule your downtime. This way YOU have set aside a time to get a board evaluated and possibly repaired BEFORE it has failed to a point where you are down. Eagle upgrades its components for a higher degree of reliability. This is important especially when dealing with a Board that you do not have a direct replacement to swap in when a problem arises.
Eagle covers just about any Manufacturer for board repair. Your board can be analyzed FREE of charge and we also provide a written quote. Below is a list of some common Heidelberg Boards that we have to loan out while your board is repaired:
CPC Boards: MWE, MOT, SAK

Rebuilding & Retrofit:
Eagle Press can take most print equipment you might have and either rebuild it or retro fit it to your specifications. If we are unable to find a solution to any problem, we can solicit a professional from our network.
Depending upon your specific equipment and its condition, we can retrofit presses to increase speed, production and output. Think of the positive impact on your entire operation if you could get a significant boost in output: time, labor, savings, speed, production, delivery.
Extensive and intensive is the best way to describes our inspection service of a your press. This is a comprehensive, multi-point inspection that goes from the drive motor to the delivery rails and all points in between. Our experienced personnel go over a machine from top to bottom, inside and out, with the intent and result of finding every single thing that is wrong with a machine - normal wear and tear and then beyond. We find these and then report exactly what it would take to bring the machine back to peak operating efficiency.
Maintenance on your press is serious business, as is making sure that you maximize your RETURN ON INVESTMENT. The investment is sizable. Often, a press "goes down" due to an accumulation of neglect in the key areas that regular maintenance would most likely prevent. And presses have a way of "going down" right in the middle of a key job run, just when you can least tolerate having a press out of service. Instead of having regular maintenance service to keep it running in tip-top shape, it becomes "Emergency Service", and emergency service can be more costly than if the press was properly maintained in the first place. Additionally, a poorly-maintained press wears and degrades overall at a much faster pace, so the real value of the machine and the investment spirals down. An inspection service for a potential buyer could illuminate those problems caused by poor maintenance easily. The sale price sinks much lower than it should be or could be given proper maintenance during the life of the press.
Regular, scheduled maintenance is a good business decision, whether this is supplied by in-house maintenance personnel or outside professionals like Eagle Press Repairs. Whatever the choice, regular maintenance is a good investment in protecting your investment and retaining value.
We can inspect your press at any time, but so can you and your staff. Here are some tips for keeping your equipment in good shape:
- Cleaning grippers and pads
- Clean and check the bearers
