Ann Arbor, MI, March 30, 2018 –(PR.com)– Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has announced the completion of a development project that results in Xitron support for inkjet presses designed with drive electronics by Global Inkjet Systems (GIS). The digital front end includes the popular Navigator RIP based on the Harlequin Host Renderer platform and the client-server properties of Navigator Workflow Server.
Working with one of their many inkjet OEMs, a Navigator DFE was installed and field tested driving a new production press with Kyocera printheads. “Everything performed exactly to specification and the press is printing at full rated speed,” said Eric Nelsen, Xitron’s VP of product development.
Successful completion of the project means that the Navigator DFE drives presses using GIS electronics with Fuji Dimatix, Ricoh, Kyocera, Toshiba, Xaar, or Konica Minolta printheads. Integration of the Navigator DFE provides inkjet press manufacturers a stable, proven RIP and workflow system capable of driving the press with exceptional color control.
”We are delighted to be working with Xitron. The completion of this development means that more users can benefit from the Navigator DFE,” said Debbie Thorp, Business Development Director at GIS. “Support for GIS-based systems is essential due to the variety of inkjet heads driven by their electronics,” added Nelsen. “Their entire catalog of inkjet press manufacturers can now take advantage of Xitron’s powerful Navigator workflow platform.”
