Xitron Debuts New Navigator Flexo Suite with Integrated SmartFlexo Screening at Labelexpo Europe

Easy-to-use screening module provides quick configuration parameters for any printing environment

ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Michimich -- Xitron, a subsidiary of Hybrid Software Group (HYSG) and the developer of Harlequin-based Navigator RIP and workflow products for commercial, flexo, screen, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing, has debuted their latest version of Navigator Flexo Suite at Labelexpo Europe in Brussels, Belgium. New to the application is an integrated module allowing operators to access and change SmartFlexo screening configurations on the fly through a simple browser interface.

It allows individual configuration of minimum dot, transition points between AM and FM screening – in highlights as well as shadows – optional inclusion of support dots in highlight areas, and pixel removal in solid and near-solid areas for improved solid ink density based on press, plate, and substrate conditions.
