Xenetech's New "Xen-Nano" Viper® Controller Firmware Further Increases Engraving Resolution (4X), Reduces Operating Noise, and Maintains High Engraving Speeds


Baton Rouge, La. - Xenetech Global, a leading manufacturer of laser and mechanical engraving and cutting systems, has developed new firmware for its rotary engraving system Viper® controller that significantly increases stepper motor resolution with less resonance. Known as "Xen-Nano" technology, the new firmware will drive Xenetech rotary systems at its current industry leading engraving speed, but with less noise and greater output quality.


The "Xen-Nano" technology drives stepper motors in a finer, smoother rotation creating higher resolution and less vibration. As an example, Xenetech Gift Engraver the Viper® GE currently has an a step per inch resolution of 0.000078125. With the new "Xen-Nano" firmware, the GE output resolution increases to 0.0000195.


Xenetech Vice President for R&D, John Lundberg, is responsible for this breakthrough. "We are constantly working on ways our customers can increase productivity and quality and this new firmware achieves both, with noise reduction as an added benefit" stated Lundberg. "Xenetech Viper® owners can install and begin using this immediately, smoothly transitioning their engraving to realize even more efficiency, quality, and resulting profitability."


The new firmware is shipping with all new RPC Viper controllers. A free upgrade is available for RPD Viper controller owners under warranty or annual telephone contract. Customers interested in upgrading to the "Xen-Nano" firmware should email for more information.


Xenetech develops and manufactures a full line of computerized rotary engraving systems, laser engraving systems, and professional engraving software for the recognition, sign, rubber stamp, jewelry, gift, and industrial marking industries. Established in 1986, the company is based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and maintains a global distribution network.
