All-in-one workflow software for offset packaging printing
Amfortis is a dedicated all-in-one PDF workflow solution for packaging converters and printers, covering all prepress production tasks from preflighting, stepping & repeating and proofing to rendering. Rely on a single system with one interface to smoothly manage your entire prepress production and drive all output devices.
Amfortis uses Agfa’s Digital QuickStrip mechanism to render a single artwork, which then gets stepped to fill a complete print sheet. This has two great advantages:
- It keeps file sizes and therefore hardware requirements low, which speeds up your production process.
- It ensures a perfectly consistent print quality. As the box is rendered, before it is placed, it will always retain its characteristics, no matter its position or orientation.
The single rendered artwork can also be used for soft and hard proofing, and for remote approval.
High print quality, low ink usage
Amfortis incorporates our revolutionary SPIR@L screening, which replaces the traditional ink dot with more efficient shapes. The result? Excellent print quality and significant ink savings, as well as increased printing speed and stability on press!
Built into Amfortis is our comprehensive print standardization software PressTune, which gives you a firm grip on print quality and color consistency and lets you share objective evaluations with brand owners. You’ll benefit from faster make-ready, lower ink and paper consumption, and smoother approvals. Amfortis also supports extended color gamut separations on which our ink-saving software InkTune can be applied.
Brand design & protection
Amfortis integrates with Agfa’s Arziro, an Illustrator plug-in that makes it easy to add specific design elements to artwork for brand protection. Arziro not only protects printed packages against counterfeiting, yet also enhances their shelf appeal, thus enabling you to create added value for brand owners.
“The huge potential of Amfortis immediately became apparent. It has made our production process both faster and more secure, as it allowed us to eliminate intermediate steps. Our operators, who were already used to working with Apogee, feel that the interface is very intuitive.”

“Whether you want to make a last-minute text change, update an image, add trapping or an embellishment, Amfortis Editor can handle it. It will enhance the final product quality and reduces your production costs.”
