Xitron, a  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 pvice president 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.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
