The LUCIA PRO ink set adopts formulated 8-color microencapsulated pigment inks. These inks help you achieve fantastic color reproduction, image clarity, and fine lines ideal for creating vivid posters and advertising displays.
This ink set helps:
- Enhance red color performance
- Reduce graininess
- Enhance dark area reproduction
The PF-10, a 1.28”-wide print head with 18,432 nozzles equipped with anti-clogging FINE technology generates fast print speeds while reducing the possibility of clogging. Ink ejection conditions are precisely checked by 27 sensors, and if a clog is detected, another nozzle will automatically provide back-up.
To enhance print performance, the 8-colors utilize all 12 ink channels in the print head. The LUCIA PRO ink is arranged in a mirror layout on the print head, symmetrically arranging the most important colors: C, M, Y, and MBK. This layout allows for the same ejection order of the four key colors during the bidirectional printing process resulting in denser ink placement and faster prints speeds.
This print head is wider than previous imagePROGRAF print heads requiring models to only have one instead of two. Having only one print head means a more compact printer that achieves faster print speeds while maintaining high print quality.
The imagePROGRAF printers are powered by the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine. With three processing chips, this high-precision control engine performs the processing of massive image data, and controls the optimal ink layout that produces high resolution prints.
The color calibration function is designed to produce consistent color reproduction. This printer includes an upgraded, built-in color densitometer that offers precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing you to maintain a low average printer-to-printer color difference. The color calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer’s operation panel. A single color calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to media in all printing modes.
The engineered unibody structure provides a strong platform for stable print head scanning, resulting in precise ink droplet placement. The perfect combination of speed and high-quality printing is achieved with this design.
The optional Multifunction Roll System is a versatile media handling solution system that enables either a second roll of media to be loaded on the printer, or the unit can be configured as a bi-directional media Take-up unit.
The dual-roll feeding mechanism enables users to load a second roll of a different media type and size so that users can simultaneously switch from printing on matte to gloss paper without pausing their work to reload. Additionally, the second roll can be used to support high-volume printing by enabling two rolls of the same media to be fed to the printer.
The Multifunction Roll System may also be configured by the operator as a take-up unit to rewind longer printouts. The user can choose to rewind media with the printed surface on the outside or the inside of the roll, thereby supporting “bi-directional rewinding”.
Loading media on a Canon larger format printer has never been easier. Simply set the roll holder in the printer, rotate the roll holder handles, and let the media automatically feed into the printer. No need to touch the paper; decreasing the risk of creasing and blemishes.
The large 3.5″ color LCD touch panel makes it easy to view printer information as well as perform operations.
Stay Connected. A first for the imagePROGRAF large format printers, Wi-Fi connectivity is now standard with this PRO series.
PDF and JPEG files can be directly printed on the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S from a USB thumb drive. Simply input the thumb drive into the USB port on the printer, preview the image on the operation panel, and print! Fast and easy printing without the use of a computer.
Available in 160ml, 330ml, and 700ml ink tanks, you have the flexibility to purchase ink based on the color frequency at which you print.
The Sub-Ink Tank System allows all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs.
The imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S features a multipositional basket that can be freely adjusted to enable various output positions and options:
- Catch Basket
- Flatbed Stacking
- Slope (can be used to display a print)
A built-in 320 GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host Mac or PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval. This 320 GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering sample job storage space.
