Agfa Graphics releases security printing design software


High-end security printing software firm Agfa Graphics has launched an improved version of its Fortuna product featuring updated tools and new security modules.

The new Fortuna 9 design software employs new methods to create security designs in a more automated way to help achieve time savings and added quality, said Agfa in a statement.

The software aims at high-security printing designs for passports, ID documents, high-security cards, tax stamps, security documents, lottery tickets.

“It’s critically important for security design tools to stay ahead of the counterfeiters that are out there,” said Andy Grant, Global Head of Software, Agfa Graphics. “Agfa continues to research new security design tools to reduce threats to security and at the same time adapt the software to increase design productivity. We’re currently also developing very particular software and features for the high-security market and for the general security applications,” Grant added.

Fortuna 9 also includes a completely new font management tool with support for Open Type fonts and TrueType fonts. Its Smart Selection option now allows specific objects to be selected more easily and the software adds improved handling for high-resolution images and raw text. Fortuna 9 will be available at the end of the second quarter of 2015.
