Xitron Announces Addition of Bill Brunone

Industry expert is new Director of Business Development, Digital Print Solutions.

Ann Arbor, MI, April 23, 2021 --(PR.com)-- Xitron, a subsidiary of Global Graphics PLC and the developer of the Harlequin-based Navigator RIP and 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. Bill’s focus will be Xitron’s advanced Digital Front End (DFE), designed for desktop, production, and industrial inkjet applications.

Prior to joining Xitron’s digital development team, Bill 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 eight or nine years, Xitron and Memjet have been very successful partnering on projects for OEM’s such as Colordyne, SuperWeb, Kirk-Rudy, and Astro-Nova,” Brunone remarked. “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 (also a Global Graphics PLC subsidiary), 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 echoed Brunone’s sentiments. “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.”
