  • 1.  Digital workflow solution

    Posted 22 days ago

    I'm looking for suggestions to replace an (ancient) Rampage RIP system. The overall environment is fairly basic - just a single digital press (Presstek). The solution would need to support trapping (auto and manual) and export to 1-bit TIFF. I know there are several systems out there that could satisfy the requirements, but many of them are probably overkill. It's been several years since I looked into RIPing systems so I would imagine things have change somewhat, but maybe not. In any event, I'm looking for a more modern solution that's a good fit for a small environment like without being exorbitantly expensive. I figured several people in this group are at least somewhat up to speed on current offerings. Thanks for any suggestions.

    In my opinion, I would look at two workflows:

    1.) Kodak Evo.  Might be too many options and cost may be too high for budget

    2.) Xitron Navigator

    Thanks for the follow up. What do you think about EFI Fiery XF? Along with Xitron Navigator, it's listed on this Presstek workflow solutions page.

    Fiery software is already being used for output to a Ricoh 5200. I was thinking using the same platform might make sense.
