Agfa Graphics has released new design and assembly software for high-security printing called Fortuna 10.
This new version of Fortuna software features new security design tools and new rasters, as well as a series of new tools focusing on productivity and simplifying security designers’ tasks. It aims to reduce manual calculations; increase productivity; and make it easier for designers of high-security printing graphics for passports, ID documents, high-security cards, breeder documents, tax stamps, security documents, and lottery tickets.
Andy Grant, global head of software for Agfa Graphics, says, “For Fortuna we are in a continuous process of researching new security tools while adapting the software itself to increase the design productivity. We want to enable designers of high-security documents to create dedicated and more diverse designs faster and more accurately.”
New features in the Fortuna 10 include the Trafo pattern generator, a which creates complex and precise transformation patterns that replace labour intensive manual steps. It has two new special rasters. The Hair Raster helps creating complex lines based on reference elements or images and the Text Raster enables operators to use font properties to create type-based security rasters. Agfa says the Fortuna software takes a modular approach and offers a highly secure file format.
Other new tools in Fortuna include a new align tool; enhanced magnetism of objects; a special zoom option; tools to create and control dashed lines; advanced use of text from external sources; improvements to the special warp grid; mirror and geometrics. Agfa says these features save time when developing high-quality and complex ways to deter and stop counterfeiters.
The company will demonstrate Fortuna 10 at the security printers conference in Seville, which starts later today.
