Xitron Sells 4,500th Screen PT-R Interface

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

Allows popular computer-to-plate device to be driven with any RIP/Workflow 

Ann Arbor, MI – Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has now shipped more than 4,500 units of its Screen interface kit. The interface allows PT-R owners to use any RIP or workflow they choose when driving their computer-to-plate system.

“All installation scenarios are covered when our USB interface is used,” said Karen Crews, President of Xitron. “We have customers who want to buy a Screen PT-R but keep their current workflow, and we also have PT-R owners who want to switch RIP and workflow software but keep their PT-R. Our interface makes both situations possible.”

There are more than 20,000 Screen CtP engines installed worldwide, which means Xitron has driven nearly one quarter of them at one time or another. A favorite of Xitron dealers, they are often sold with new PT-R installations, but the engine is just as popular on the second-hand market. This is where a Xitron interface is essential because it allows such an easy integration.

The Screen interface kit is capable of driving all of the PIF-based platesetters, including the 4000, 6000, and 8000 series engines as well as the large format Ultima 16000, 24000, 32000, 36000, and 40000 systems. All like engines branded for companies like Fujifilm and Agfa are also supported. Coupled with Xitron’s Navigator RIP, the interface becomes an economical option for anyone considering the purchase of a used or remanufactured PT-R.
