Canon Expands imagePROGRAF PRO Series With Four New Models

Canon Expands imagePROGRAF PRO Series With Four New Models

Devices Aimed at the Fine Art, Photographic And Production Signage Markets

MELVILLE, N.Y. – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the expansion of the imagePROGRAF PRO Series with four large format inkjet printers. The extension of the Series includes the 11-Color plus Chroma Optimizer 44-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 and 24-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-2000, designed to provide spectacular image quality for the fine art and photographic markets, as well as the eight-color 60-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S and 44-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S, two affordably priced models to economically create eye-catching posters and vivid displays for the production signage industry.

PRO-2000 PRO-4000 PRO-4000S
PRO-2000 PRO-4000 PRO-4000S

PRO-6000 PRO-6000S
PRO-6000 – Coming Soon PRO-6000S

Continuing to deliver output solutions for photographers who are “equally obsessed” with the printed image, the imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 andare 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer printers delivering the quality demanded by the fine art community. Complementing Canon’s professional line of DSLR cameras not only in their appearance, but also in their ability to create industry-leading imagery, these new models ensure a level of stunning Canon image quality from input to output, known as “Crystal-fidelity.” Mirroring the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000, the 11-color models are also marked by the distinctive Canon red line, echoing the same red line found on Canon’s EF L-Series lenses.

“From the time a photo is taken, to the time it is reproduced in print, imaging professionals require output solutions that accurately preserve the detail and vibrancy of that moment,” said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The new imagePROGRAF PRO Series models not only deliver an impressive and well-appointed design equal to Canon’s EOS digital cameras, but are also equipped with advanced technology features to faithfully reproduce high-quality photos taken by Canon’s EOS digital cameras with outstanding image quality.”

Outstanding Image Quality
The LUCIA PRO 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer ink system provides exceptional image quality, allowing for increased color gamut, reduced bronzing, improved scratch resistance, greater image clarity, gloss uniformity and excellent shadow reproduction, as well as increased black optical density. Compared to previous models, the Series features a wider print head (1.28-inch wide) with anti-clogging technology, which improves efficiency as well as reduces cleaning cycles and prevents wasted ink. This newly developed print head allows for a more compact printer design as only one print head is installed in each PRO Series printer. Additionally, all models maintain high print quality with a multi-sensor that calibrates the printer, ensuring color consistency from the first print to the last. They also feature a redesigned high-precision mechanical platform, providing a uniform, rigid frame to reduce vibrations during printing and more accurate ink ejection. The models also feature effortless media feeding capabilities, allowing photographers to no longer have to worry about blemished prints due to fingerprints.

High Productivity
For increased versatility, a Multifunction Roll System comes standard in the 60-inch eight-color model and is an option for the 44-inch and 24-inch models in the Series, marking its first appearance in a 24-inch imagePROGRAF printer. When used as a dual roll, the Multifunction Roll System will enable users to load glossy media in one roll and matte media in the other to seamlessly print to both rolls without needing to switch media or black inks. The Multifunction Roll unit will intelligently send the job to the correct media, automating the process and providing increased ease of use. The roll can also act as a take-up unit with bi-directional rewind, ideal for long, uninterrupted print runs.

All four new models feature the L-COA PRO processing engine for high-precision image reproduction and high-speed processing of high resolution data. The Sub-Ink Tank feature loved by users of the imagePROGRAF Series has been carried over to these new models, helping to reduce downtime and minimize costs by automatically enabling ink tank replacement during printing. The eight-color models utilize the same new 12-channel print head but the key colors of C, M, Y and MBk are arranged symmetrically in a mirrored arrangement, helping to realize high-speed printing, as well as high-color density.

Ease of Use
These new imagePROGRAF PRO Series models include several enhancements for increased usability, including a redesigned 3.5-inch color LCD touch panel, direct USB drive print capabilities, and mobile connectivity. Users can now print PDF and JPEG files directly from a USB thumb drive for fast and easy printing without the need for a computer. The 3.5-inch LCD will render a preview of the file to ensure users are printing the correct file. Additionally, Wi-Fi® (IEEE 802.11b/g/n) capability allows for smooth and easy connection to wireless LAN in office environments.1

User-Friendly Software
Further enhancing the user experience with these new imagePROGRAF PRO printers is the intuitive software solution of Print Studio Pro. With a focus on quality and ease of use, Print Studio Pro is a plugin for Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe Lightroom®2 and Canon Digital Photo Professional software, to easily exports files directly to the printer.1 The Quick Utility Toolbox feature provides users with a portal to launch and control software from one central interface, and Accounting Manager is included to help photographers keep track of consumable costs such as ink and media, helping users to determine their overall printing expenses. Also included is Device Management Console, an administrative tool which provides users with the means to manage up to 50 imagePROGRAF PRO Series printers by monitoring activity such as error messages and printer information such as the execution status of calibrations, all from one location.

These imagePROGRAF PRO models are expected to be available in late spring of 2016. The imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 is available for an MSRP of $5,995 or $6,995 with the addition of the optional Multifunction Roll System. The imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 is available for an MSRP of $2,995, or $3,795 with the optional Multifunction Roll System. The imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S comes standard with the Multifunction Roll System at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $9,995. The imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S is available for an MSRP of $4,995, or $5,995 with the optional Multifunction Roll System. The previously announced PRO-1000 is available for an MSRP of $1,299.99.

Professional Plotter Technologies will have exclusive first access to these units and will offer them at great introductory prices and support. We will be providing FREE customer ICC Media profiles for these with our new FineTouch premium media line to ensure consistent color and perfect prints every time.

New Canon ImagePROGRAF MFPs now available!


New Canon ImagePROGRAF IPF770 MPF L36 and Image PROGRAF IPF670 MFP L24 Printers

imagePROGRAF iPF770 MFP L36

The Large Format Solutions Division is excited to announce the expansion of their award winning imagePROGRAF Large-Format Multifunction Printer line with the new iPF MFP L Scan-to-Copy/File series.  The two models that comprise the new L-Series are the 36-inch iPF770 MFP L36 and the 24-inch iPF670 MFP L24.  The new L-Series complements the current iPF MFP M40 imaging system line by providing a product that offers basic scan-to-copy capabilities at an affordable price.  Developed to be easy-to-use, the new L-Series Scan-to-Copy/File systems are expanding the market by putting Large Format multifunction capabilities within reach of small offices, low volume and entry level users.  Together, the two iPF MFP series give Canon an unrivaled breadth of large format scan-to-copy/file solutions.
The iPF MFP L-Series Scan-to-Copy/File systems have been designed for a new category of users.  This untapped market includes: those that may not have the expertise to use or need the sophisticated functions of the iPF MFP M40 systems, are currently outsourcing their scanning needs, do not think they have the budget for an MFP or do not have the room to install a large MFP system.   This opens up opportunities for a new customer base which includes: architects, engineers, subcontractors, and consulting firms whose volume might not justify the cost of current MFP systems;  Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges who can take advantage of  applications that range from curriculum based materials, classroom visual aids, fundraising and special events;  Small, professional businesses can benefit from the convenience of having an in-office device, available at anytime, is more economical than outsourcing and has simplicity of operation like that of copying machines.
Opening the market to new users also unlocks the possibilities for upgrade opportunities in the future.  The current iPF MFP M40 series has more functionality and is designed for a much wider range of applications.  Some of the differences between the iPF MFP M40 series and the iPF MFP L-Series include:

  • L-Series includes only printer and scanner (No PC or monitor)
  • L-Series scanners have a smaller range of document sizes & thicknesses
  • L-Series have no preview editing workflow
  • L-Series scanners have slower scan & copy speeds
  • L-Series have lower optical resolution
  • L-Series is available in 24”

These new additions to the MFP lineup are designed as an all in one integrated system, with the scanner connecting directly on the top of the printer.  The new scanners are lightweight, the L24 weighs 11.8 lbs and the L36 weighs in at 16.2 lbs making them easy to install and non-intimidating to the novice user.  The L-Series scanners utilize the same advanced SingleSensor Technology used in the current iPF MFP M40 systems which helps provide consistent color accuracy.  The simple and easy-to-use operation panel incorporated on the scanner offers user-friendly “Green Button” scanning and copying functionality.  The panel comes equipped with picture icons for easy identification of the scanner operations.

The printers included in this series are the imagePROGRAF iPF770 and iPF670 models that feature a 5-Color ink set which is ideal for technical applications, posters, and office signage.  This ink technology uses four highly colorfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive color, plus two channels of pigment matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves, and small text on technical and office documents. Included is a reformulated magenta ink that helps produce a wider color gamut in the red and orange spectrums, compared to previous models. The printer’s sub-ink tank system allows for all of the available ink in a tank to be used before needing to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced without stopping a print job.  A number of important built-in features help minimize ink consumption, media waste, and maintenance costs to help reduce total cost of operation. These features include Economy Print Mode for a low cost per print, auto-rotation, and nesting to minimize media waste.

How to Choose the Correct Roll Laminator from Plotterpro



Wide format roll laminators come in all shapes and sizes, from varying widths, temperature settings, and application features.  Laminating serves endless benefits to preserving and enhancing media of all kinds.  Choosing the right wide format roll laminator for your projects is the first step in enjoying the benefits of laminating.

Thermal Hot Roll Laminating vs Pressure Sensitive Cold Roll Laminating

There are two types of application techniques for roll lamination, hot thermal laminating and pressure sensitive cold laminating.  Thermal lamination is the method of using heat to activate the glue on laminating roll films to seal and protect the material you are laminating.  Pressure sensitive laminating doesn’t use heat in order to laminate film but instead uses the pressure of rollers to seal the laminating film onto your media.  Laminating film used in pressure sensitive laminating is self-adhesive, similar to tape.

Thermal Roll Laminators Cold Pressure Sensitive Roll Laminators
Laminating Film to Use Often referred to as “standard laminating film” or “thermal laminating film”, use laminating roll film that requires melting in order to activate the adhesive Often referred to as “cold laminating roll film” or “pressure sensitive laminating roll film”, laminating film used in pressure sensitive laminating does not require heat because of its self adhesive characteristic, similar to tape
When to Use? Thermal laminating is best used when the material you are laminating will not be affected by the application of heat.  The laminator will melt the laminating film onto the material in order to seal and protect the media. Pressure sensitive laminating is best used when the material you are laminating is sensitive to the application of heat or high temperatures.  Cold laminators will press pressure sensitive laminating film onto the media using high pressure rollers.

Width Sizes

Wide format roll laminators generally come in width sizes from 15” to 65”.  Smaller sized roll laminators that can fit on a table are referred to as table top roll laminators.  Larger wide format laminators that are too large to be supported on a table often come with self supporting stands.

The width size of your laminator will be determined by the size of the media or paper you will be laminating.  It is generally recommended that you add 1 inch to 3 inches to your widest media you are going to laminate.

Examples of Finished Laminating Products

Laminating can offer numerous added benefits to many different kind of graphics and displays. Below are just some examples of graphics that laminating can enhance:

-Pop Up Displays
-Floor Graphics
-Window Graphics
-Presentation Boards
-Rigid Displays
-Flexible Displays
-Backlit Displays
-Vinyl Banners
-Outdoor Signage

Other Application Terms to Consider

Laminating – The application of laminating film to the face of a printed image in order to enhance color, contrast, and overall durability of the media
Mounting – The process of permanently or semi-permanently affixing a printed image onto a rigid substrate using a mounting adhesive laminating roll
Encapsulating – The sealing of a printed image, front and back, with a thermal laminating film. Also commonly referred to as thermal laminating. 

Film Core Sizes

Film core size is the size of laminating film cores a roll laminator can accept in its film supply shaft.  Wide format roll laminators use laminating roll film that generally come in either 1” cores, 2.25” cores, or 3” cores.  Film core size refers to diameter of the cardboard roll the film is wrapped around.  Roll laminators will specify compatible film cores in its specifications.  It is important to know and select the correct film core sizes for your laminator to ensure that the film you purchase will correctly load onto the roll laminator.

Film Thickness and Mounting Options

WIde format Roll laminators will specify the mil film thickness it can laminate.  Roll laminating film mil thickness ranges from 1 mil – 10 mil.  Certain roll laminators will have the option to laminate thicker material, such as foam boards, up to a certain thickness.  Roll laminators can laminate materials anywhere between 1/2” to 1” thick, depending the laminator specifications.
