A new direction for Flexo Prepress
Navigator Flexo Suite is a tightly integrated collection of workflow tools designed specifically for use with today’s Flexographic Computer-to-Plate systems. It's a modular concept that allows the user to create precisely the functionality they require, based on the type of printing they do.
The first PDF 2.0 compliant RIP available, Navigator’s Harlequin pedigree sets it apart from the competition. Xitron has sold over 35,000 Navigator RIPs around the world due to its consistency, speed, and rendering accuracy. Built-in features include user-defined resolutions up to 9,600 dpi, Harlequin Precision Flexo Screening with selectable dot shapes, and the ColorPro Color Management Module.
Intuitive, easy to configure and use, Navigator Workflow is a Client-Server based system. Clients can be installed on Mac and PC workstations throughout the shop and operators can maintain complete control of their jobs from submission to completion. Jobs are added to the workflow through drag & drop, hot folders, or direct print. As the system processes the jobs through each step, operators see the progress in real time. The advanced, Pixel Level Preview adds another level of precision and confidence. Once completed, built-in archiving saves each job for reprint purposes.
Navigator Plate Controller
Tasked with assembling all your jobs and their various plates, Navigator Plate Controller employs a simple user interface along with drag & drop functionality. Operators select the one-bit TIFF separations from incoming jobs and populate the plate to save as much material as possible. Move, rotate, and add jobs simply by clicking and dragging them into position. Use the Auto Crop button to generate an output image that prevents wasting unused plate areas.
Take total control of your flexo screening needs with SmartFlexo screening. Adjust the settings to optimize results on plate and press by selecting AM to FM change points. Remove pixels from halftone dots and solid areas for better ink coverage with less ink. Maintain dots in hard-to-hold highlight areas with multiple SmartDot choices. Customize the response regardless of plate type.
