Ghent, Belgium, 18.06.2024 (PresseBox) - HYBRID Software, developer of innovative productivity tools for label & packaging printing, announces the release of PACKZ 10, the latest version of its popular all-in-one PDF editor. A prepress application for both digital and conventional printing, PACKZ 10 introduces groundbreaking features including seamless integration with EngView’s CAD software, advanced 3D viewing capabilities for metal can printing, and enhanced functionality for managing small print runs.  STEPZ 10 offers the same features in a scaled-down product aimed solely at digital printing. 

“We showcased PACKZ 10 at drupa 2024 and it was met with great enthusiasm. HYBRID Software is dedicated to offering open, interoperable and innovative solutions that can be used safely and with confidence by the label and packaging industry. The latest version of PACKZ is a testament to this,” says product manager Pascal Wybo.

New features in PACKZ 10 include:

Connectivity to EngView

PACKZ 10 offers deep connectivity to EngView Packaging Suite CAD software, providing robust support for existing EngView users and a modern, user-friendly CAD alternative for folding carton printers. This collaboration enhances the extensive range of editing and automation tools in PACKZ 10, representing a significant advancement in packaging production for folding cartons.

Capture 3D technology

With advancements in HYBRID Software's Capture 3D technology, PACKZ 10 delivers supreme quality and detailed printing on metal cans. The software now features precise deformation grids and live 3D viewing, unlocking new opportunities for branding and metal can packaging. This innovation follows the game-changing shrink sleeve technology launched earlier this year.

Packzimizer enhancements

Packzimizer, HYBRID Software’s auto layout and step-and-repeat technology for roll-fed digital labels and stack offset printers, includes new features to manage short print runs and smaller quantities. Packzimizer intelligently analyzes the order data to optimize the layout and repetitions of labels on the roll based on quantity, offering maximum substrate usage and press uptime.
