Xitron (Ann Arbor, Michigan), developer of the Harlequin-based Navigator RIP and pre-press workflow products for commercial, flexo, screen, digital and high-speed inkjet printing, has announced that Bill Brunone has joined the company as Director of Business Development. His focus will be Xitron’s advanced Digital Front End (DFE) designed for desktop, production and industrial inkjet applications. Prior to joining Xitron’s business development team, Brunone was responsible for starting Memjet’s Production Print Group, where he was instrumental in coordinating the integration of Xitron technology in several OEM print systems using Memjet printheads.
“Over the past 8 or 9 years, Xitron and Memjet have been very successful partnering on projects for OEM’s such as Colordyne, SuperWeb, Kirk-Rudy, and Astro-Nova,” Brunone said. “I’m looking forward to expanding Xitron’s DFE reach beyond Memjet DuraFlex, DuraLink, and HP FI-1000 printhead systems, as additional OEMs look to create the next generation of high-speed digital inkjet presses.” When paired with printhead electronics from Meteor Inkjet, Xitron’s Navigator DFE is capable of driving printing systems incorporating printheads from Xaar, Konica Minolta, Ricoh, Kyocera, and Fuji Dimatix, among others. “This adaptability gives Navigator DFE a huge advantage in the market over other DFE developers,” Brunone added.
Karen Crews, President of Xitron added: “Bill’s background in engineering – and overall experience in digital print and packaging – is a welcome addition to Xitron’s business development team. His accomplishments in driving inkjet technology in the marketplace are well recognized and highly regarded. We’re extremely excited that he’s now part of Xitron.”
