Xitron introduces Navigator Flexo Suite
The suite is generating attention among flexo shops interested in an economical alternative to expensive legacy products.
“With so many new flexo CTP engines entering the market, many of which are on display here, Labelexpo has been the perfect venue to begin introducing the package to end user prospects, as well as CTP manufacturers,” says Karen Crews, president of Xitron. “The first two days were extremely positive and demo appointments have been beyond brisk.”
Navigator Flexo Suite combines the Xitron RIP and Workflow with SmartFlexo screening and the new Navigator Plate Controller for final plate assembly. The four modules together represent a turnkey solution for economical flexo plate production, designed for use with any of the flexo CTP engines that accept one-bit TIFF input.
“Visitors have been very interested in the SmartFlexo screening module,” Crews adds. “The level of customization regarding am/fm changeover, highlight dot retention, and surface screening variation are unlike anything currently available with a Harlequin RIP. Perhaps most important, the price point for the package makes this a very attractive option for flexo CTP users. The base price for Navigator Flexo Suite is expected to be less than $15,000, and it is available for immediate release and shipment.
