Xennia acquires digital inkjet print software company Cametrics
1 December 2010
Xennia Technology Ltd, the world’s leading industrial inkjet solutions provider, today announces the completion of the acquisition of Cametrics – known for its ixPressia digital printing software products. This further enhances the integration of Xennia’s XenJet module portfolio, making the benefits of digital inkjet technology – reduced costs, increased productivity and just-in-time customisation – available more quickly and at reduced cost.
Dr Alan Hudd, Xennia’s Managing Director, comments: “We are pleased to join forces with such a peerless software company and its accomplished team. Print software is pivotal to Xennia’s proposition and this acquisition significantly bolsters our inkjet modules and systems portfolio. The acquisition of Cametrics reinforces our ability to support our OEM customers, making inkjet implementation easier for all.”
Xennia and Cametrics have been working together for a number of years. XenJet Cygnus, Xennia’s print software module, is based around Cametrics’ iXpressia PrintEngine product. XenJet Cygnus provides a ‘printer manager’ capable of running all modules of the printing system, including the print engine, fluid controllers, maintenance station, printhead and/or substrate motion and UV curing. XenJet Cygnus prints image files in any standard image format, with full colour management, and handles variable data, such as barcodes and serial numbers, which change from print to print.
