Xitron Ships 5000th Navigator digital front end

Print Solutions

Xitron has announced a milestone for its Navigator digital front end (DFE). Installations have surpassed the 5000 mark following a recent shipment of Navigator DFE licenses to Printware for its iJetColor systems.

With the ability to drive printheads from virtually all vendors, Navigator DFE is quicky becoming one of the most popular choices in the industry.

Among many of the FI-1000 customers are Printware, AstroNova, Martin-Yale, and Adsi, covering the mailing and addressing, labels, and commercial print markets. Similarly, Memjet OEMs such as Printware, Quadient, Kirk-Rudy, Arrow Systems, Paper Converting Machine Company, FP Mailing, Winkler + Dunnebier, and Simply Inkjet are providing comparable solutions to those markets – in addition to corrugated and packaging– all with Navigator DFEs.

‘Reaching this milestone so quickly is a real testament to the functionality and usability of the Navigator DFE,’ said Karen Crews, president of Xitron. ‘But it also tells a ‘get to market’ story about our partners. All these companies were able to devote important development time strictly to their presses – knowing a world class DFE was already there and waiting for them.’

Eric Nelsen, Xitron’s vice president for product development, added: Five thousand is significant, and we got there supporting a relatively small number of printhead types. With our recent integration to Meteor Inkjet drive electronics (from Hysg sister company Meteor Inkjet), we have opened the door of full stack, ready to deploy DFEs for every printhead Meteor supports. That list currently includes Kyocera, Ricoh, Epson, Dimatix, Konica Minolta, SII, Toshiba, XAAR and Xerox.’

Xitron’s Navigator DFE will be available for personalised demonstration at Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, Belgium September 11 to 14. Xitron will be exhibiting on stand 8B45 along with Meteor Inkjet and the other Hybrid Software Group companies – Global Graphics Software, IC3D, ColorLogic, and Hybrid Software.
