Key Features

LUCIA PRO pigment ink

LUCIA PRO pigment ink is newly developed for the imagePROGRAF PRO series to deliver printing with a wide colour gamut, excellent colour expression, superior black and dark area reproduction, low graininess, supression of bronzing and good gloss characteristics. The professional LUCIA pigment inks offer accurate colour reproduction and enhanced print longevity. Prints can last approximately 200 years in a photo album, 80-years on display behind glass and 50-years without the glass. LUCIA PRO ink technology offers the optimum balance between print quality and the amount of ink used, ensuring outstanding results and an excellent return on investment.

Advanced precision print head

The new imagePROGRAF PRO series fully integrated 'single' print head design enables even faster printing with exceptional print quality. A compact 1.28” wide nozzle, enables faster printing whilst retaining a higher print quality compared to the predecessor print head. High-precision ink ejection without discrepancies.

Innovative mechanical platform for best quality

Canon PRO-4000s Dual roll unitimagePROGRAF PRO series printers feature a brand new mechanical platform to provide a precise and exceptionally rigid frame that can maintain an exact distance between the print head and media – virtually eliminating oscillation for greater stability and acccuracy. The air feeding system keeps media flat during printing, ensuring high precision ink placement.

Dual roll unit

The optional RU-41 dual roll unit provides either an additional paper roll or can function as a media take-up or rewinding unit for printed output. Media take-up can be performed with the printed surface either on the inside or on the outside, allowing media to be instantly ready for the nxt process, making workflow more efficient. The dual roll unit offers incresed versatility for your Canon PRO-Series printer allowing many additional options such as printing using two different types of paper or different paper sizes, without the need to keep changing rolls. 

Chroma optimiser

Canon's Chroma Optimizer ink technology is available in the 12 colour range of printers. The transparent ink helps to achieve uniform glossiness when printing on gloss or satin papers and acts as an 'accelerator' to further increase the ink performance. Using Chroma Optimizer you can expect to further enhance the richness of blacks and acheive higher density in dark colour areas, improve colour clarity and increase scratch resistance of finished prints. Using the Chroma Optimizer, finished results are improved whilst ink usage is not increased.

Colour calibration

Consistent colour reproduction is achieved between print jobs with the in built colour calibration. Acheiving accurate colour is very important to professional photographers and imaging professionals and with the colour calibration system it is now easier than ever to ensure ongoing colour accuracy with the PRO-Series range of printers. 

Great selection of software

The software bundled with imagePROGRAF PRO series printers support a wide range of large-format and advanced printing solutions, with features to optimise the efficiency of printing environments. More importantly, the software is fully cross-platform, supporting both Windows and Apple Macintosh computers.
