ANN ARBOR, Michigan , July 3, 2023 (press release) –

Xitron, a subsidiary of Hybrid Software Group and the developer of Harlequin-based Navigator RIP and workflow products for commercial, flexo, screen, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing, and Memjet, the global leader in digital inkjet technology have successfully collaborated and launched the next generation of high-speed digital inkjet printing solutions:; the DuraBbolt 325C PrintEngine and DuraBolt 650 PrintBar with integrated Navigator DFE.

Supporting full color, high-quality output at speeds of 450 feet per minute, the DuraBbolt 325C PrintEngine leverages Memjet’s proprietary printhead technology in a “Ready-to-Deploy” package and was designed specifically for high volume/high-speed print runs. The DuraBolt 650 PrintBar operates in monochrome mode, reaching linear speeds of over 950 feet per minute. “With these print speeds, the data processing requirement is massive,” said Eric Nelsen, Xitron’s VP of Product Development. “Our DFE’s scalable architecture provides this level of throughput and more, even with variable data jobs.”

Xitron’s Navigator DFE delivers more than just RIPed rasterized data to the DuraBolt PrintEngine and DuraBolt PrintBar, however. Because of the level of integration designed from inception, the DFE controls feeders, vacuums, dryers, dehumidifiers, and web tensions. “It’s capable of controlling all press functionality,” says Nelsen. “The DFE controls the entire system through a configurable ModBus dashboard.”

Memjet’s Chief Technology Officer, Jason Thelander, explained that DuraBolt’s advanced, ready-to-deploy structure and ability to integrate with third-party technologies creates a unique value proposition for its OEMs looking to build new digital presses. “DuraBbolt helps our partners get to market quickly with reduced development costs,” he said. “It’s a turnkey solution offering exceptional print speeds and quality, which gives them a genuine competitive advantage across a wide range of printing applications.”

“This partnership between Memjet and Xitron has helped eliminate the development hurdles our OEM partners previously faced while trying to get their presses to market,” said Karen Crews, President of Xitron. “This means we’re seeing new product introductions in months instead of years.”
