Xitron Develops Interface for Popular Fujifilm CTP Engines

Replaces HVD SCSI card for use on 64-bit operating systems with XMF workflow

Ann Arbor, MI, May 04, 2017 --( Xitron, the leading independent developer of RIP and workflow products for commercial, digital, and high-speed inkjet printing has completed field testing of a new USB-SCSI interface designed for Fujifilm CTP engines. The interface is available for immediate shipment worldwide.

“This is an important development for XMF users driving Luxel platesetters,” said Karen Crews, President of Xitron. “We know that many have been restricted from moving up to Windows 7 and Windows 10 64-bit environments due to SCSI driver issues. Past solutions were workable, but were not able to drive the platesetters at full-rated speed, which seemed like a step backward.”

The interface is easily integrated into XMF and Gateway software distributed by Fujifilm and their dealers worldwide. Driver installation and configuration takes only a few minutes and the B1 platesetters are able to output full size plates with no delay in rated throughput. Several Fujifilm offices participated in the field testing prior to release.

Supporting the Vx9600, V9600, Vx6000, V-8, Luxel News, and FFEI Alinte engines, Xitron has now completed support for virtually every Fujifilm platesetter model in use today. "The Luxel family of engines were the last Fujifilm CTP devices in our development plan as our other USB interfaces support the majority of the product line," said Crews. “I’m extremely proud of our engineering team’s efforts to get this project completed, and grateful for Fujifilm’s participation in the testing.”

Driving CTP devices from Agfa, ECRM, Creo, Kodak, Presstek, Heidelberg, Fujifilm, and Screen, Xitron helps customers who want to maximize their investments by extending the life of their prepress systems. More information is available at
