“We wouldn’t have installed our sixth seat of Packz if the product hadn’t made a significant contribution to our efficiency and we weren’t receiving first class service from Hybrid,” says joint owner Andrea Mingozzi of Z Due. “Packz is an application that makes high-quality editing of packaging and labels accessible to small, medium and high production volume professionals. Packz, available on OSX and Windows platforms, offers 64-bit multiprocessing as well as multi-threading for high performance PDF editing. The software can be used for automatic and manual trapping, color separation mapping, step and repeat plus text and barcode editing, basically handling all production requirements for flexo printing.”

“As the only vendor-neutral standard for graphics files, PDF eliminates the problems encountered by proprietary formats that lock-in users and deny them flexibility,” says Hybrid Software chairman Guido Van der Schueren. “By capturing all elements of the job in a single, convenient file, PDF ensures predictable results at every stage, without the need for file conversions which can often slow production. Offering support for advanced features such as transparency and versioning, PDF is increasingly the choice for packaging graphics production and platemaking.”

At drupa (Hall 7A Stand F41) Hybrid Software will show a cloud-based enterprise workflow solution, variable data options for digital package printing, warping and 3D facilities for shrink sleeves and cartons, plus a 64-bit scalable RIP for PC and MAC platforms, the only RIP of its type on the market. Visitors will also be able to hear about Hybrid’s expanded gamut color management for package printing as well as the latest developments in automated workflows, from MIS to digital output.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.
