The imagePROGRAF iPF6400S, 24-inch large format printer was designed for professionals in the commercial photography, signage display, reprographic and proofing markets that seek the highest possible standards for quality-control and image reproduction, while maximizing productivity. A large color spectrum is produced by the 8-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides scratch resistance and smoother gradations. The enhanced Multi-sensor allows for the printer to calibrate back to factory settings, and is included with this printer to help provide improved color density detection. A Color Calibration Management System allows for color calibration targets to be created using the iPF6400S printer with optional spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400S 8-Color printers, while the included software allows for all printers on the network to be monitored from one central location. The printer supports ink tank sizes of 130ml and for the first time, 300ml, and the new Sub-ink tank system keeps some ink in reserve to allow for tanks to be changed without interrupting a print. The iPF6400S printer is also equipped with a 250GB hard drive, geared to help increase productivity in high volume printing and streamlined workflows, while allowing for fast processing of large files as well as the ability to reprint jobs directly from the printer.

 

As an optional add-on to the iPF6400S printer, the SU-21 Spectrophotometer features a scan speed of up to 10 inches per second and can accommodate media of different thicknesses (Canon or non-Canon branded) thanks to the device’s mobile carriage which opens and closes automatically. The device attaches directly onto the front of the iPF6400S printer and includes a user-switchable UV blocking filter that can be switched on and off according to paper type, eliminating the need to purchase individual sensors.To expand printing options and capabilities, the iPF6400S printer comes bundled with Canon’s PosterArtist Lite software for easy poster creation, and an Accounting Manager tool that helps keep track of job cost. Also included is a Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office and a Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, which includes an Adjustment Pattern Setting that allows for multiples of an image to be printed at once with different color values implemented and displayed. Gallery wrap-ready prints can now be created using the included Gallery Wrap Feature, found in the imagePROGRAF Layout Tool. To improve versatility, the iPF6400S has a media configuration tool which allows customers to not only utilize existing Canon-branded media, but also with non-Canon branded media. By combining Canon's technological achievements, the imagePROGRAF iPF6400S achieves consistently breathtaking, durable and long lasting prints.

 

 

 

 

LUCIA EX INK SET

This 8-Colour ink set offers a brilliant range of vibrant colours, smooth gradations and transitions, with incredibly fine details. This specially formulated ink also offers scratch resistance, superb black reproduction and exceptional colour stability. Combined with the printer's technologies, the LUCIA EX inks have the ability to satisfy the demanding needs of the Commercial Photography, Signage Display, Colour Proofing and Production professionals. Vibrant, rich colours with unsurpassed detail and crisp, clean monotone images make this ink set essential for incredible quality output.

 

COLOUR CALIBRATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

The Colour Calibration Management Console is included for the centralized management of networked printers in a system from one easy to use software tool. This unique feature enables colour calibration targets created using the iPF6400S printer with the optional SU-21 spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of 8-Colour imagePROGRAF iPFX400S series printers. A printer?s administrator can monitor and manage each printer in a remote location. Linking colour calibration targets among multiple printers allows colour calibration for custom media to be performed on printers not equipped with a Spectrophotometer Unit.

 

ENHANCED MUTI-SENSOR

This printer includes an upgraded, built-in color multi-sensor that's designed to offer even more precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and a recently developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer color difference. Automatic colour calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer?s operation panel, or remotely via the Colour Calibration Management Console software. A single colour calibration performed with one type of Canon media can be applied to media in all printing modes.

 

FAST ECONOMY PRINTING

Help reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Printing Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature increases overall speed and regulates the use of all colors to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.

 

ACCOUNTING MANAGER

Tracks how much ink and media is being consumed when printing. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on "Cost of goods". The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes.

 

GALLERY WRAP FEATURE

This new creative tool can be accessed via Adobe Photoshop and allows users to easily create gallery wrap prints for framing, as well as creative options that will expand output possibilities.
