New Canon imagePROGRAF PRO Series Printers

New Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 2000/MFR, 4000/s/MFR, 6000S

Our recent visit to Canon’s Itasca, IL campus allowed our team a first hand look at the new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO Series which will include the imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 (24”), imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 & imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S (44”) plus the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S (60”.) Below are some of the new product highlights of the new generation of Canon Wide Format Printers.

New LUCIA PRO Ink Set - New, the new imagePROGRAF PRO printers from Canon come equipped with 160mL of starter inks, more than Epson’s new SureColor P-Series. The new LUCIA PRO Ink is completely new and improved composition compared to previous generations. The new ink set provides a higher color gammut in most areas than the new Epson P-Series except for green as the new Canon LUCIA PRO Ink does not include green ink cartridges. The 11-color LUCIA PRO Pigment water-based ink set includes a Chroma Optimizer(CO) which provides gloss and semi-glossy paper a clear coat effect and higher gloss levels similar to a glossy photo lab print. Ink tanks available in 160mL, 330mL and 700mL will work on all printers in the series from the 24” PRO-2000 all the way up to the PRO-6000S.

New Wide LCOA PRO Print Head - The single 1.28” Wide Print Head is 1.8x more durable than previous imagePROGRAF generations and will not clog as often as others on the market. The nozzle configuration includes more than ever with 18,432 nozzles. In conjunction with the new unibody design of the imagePROGRAF PRO-Series, print heads are able to place dots with 5 micron accuracy.

Sub Ink Tank System - The sub ink tank system of the new imagePROGRAF PRO printers is designed to reduce ink wastage. Also, the sub tanks allow users to swap inks on the fly and complete jobs even though the printer will signal a need for a new cartridge.

Size - The new PRO Series printers are more compact than ever with a narrower body. The new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 2000 has a body 11-inches more narrow than Epson’s newest SureColor P9000.

Stability - The stable frame and chassis of PRO Series printers adds more weight to the unit than previous generations. However, the unibody printer design increases the overall accuracy and decreases sway while printing jobs.

Style - The new PRO Series printers sport the same style as Canon’s L-Series Lens and their newest desktop unit, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000. A thin red line streaks across the body of the printer’s matte black exterior.

Canon Camera to Printer - Users of professional Canon cameras will find input is simple and easier than ever and quality when using Canon Cameras and Printers together is unparalleled.

Speed - Canon has gone from 2 print heads to one. The new print head is wider and covers more per pass than previous generations for a faster print.

Printer Assembly - The imagePROGRAF PRO Series printers can be easily assembled. Dual roll units only have a total of 14 screws due to its unibody design.

Computing Power - New 320GB standard on-board HDD with 1GB dedicated RAM for faster processing.

Ease of Use - There are several bells and whistles with the new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO Series printers including adjustable catch baskets, Color LCD touch screen display, three connection methods (Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB), Roll Reed without ever touching the paper’s surface with auto-feed and ability to wind-up prints with optional multifunction roll unit.
