Canon iPF PRO-4000s
The 8-colour 44-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S printer designed for the poster and signage markets exceeds expectations for speed and color consistency in a large format production printer.
8 - COLOUR PRINTER

USB2.0 & GIGABIT NETWORK CARD
The 8-color 44-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S printer designed for the poster and signage markets exceeds expectations for speed and color consistency in a large format production printer. The use of a new 1.28-inch wide 12-channel integrated compact print head, LUCIA PRO ink set , a high-precision mechanical platform and the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine achieves a balance between high-speed printing and exceptional print quality.
Canon thought of every detail when it came to building the ultimate large-format production
printer—no-touch media loading, torque control on the Take-up unit, a Sub-Ink Tank System, and a
compact size reaching a whole new level of performance.
NEWLY DEVELOPED PRINT HEAD
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 new 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.
MULTIFUNCTION ROLL SYSTEM
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.
Dual –Roll Feeding: 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 be enabling two rolls of the same media to be fed to the printer.
Bi-Directional Rewinding: 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”.
SUB-INK TANK SYSTEM
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.
Stay Connected. A first for the imagePROGRAF large-format printers, Wi-Fi connectivity is now standard with the imagePROGRAF PRO Series
EFFORTLESS MEDIA LOADING
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.
• New 1.28" print head
• New LUCIA PRO 8-colour ink system
• New, high-speed L-COA PRO processor
• High-precision unibody design
• Multifunction Roll System (optional on the PRO-4000S)
• Multipositional basket
LUCIA PRO INK SET
The new LUCIA PRO ink set adopts newly formulated, microencapsulated 8-colour pigment inks. These inks help you achieve fantastic colour reproduction, image clarity, and fine lines, all ideal for creating vivid posters
and advertising displays.
This new ink set helps:
• Enhance red colour performance
• Reduce graininess
• Enhance dark area reproduction
The color calibration function is designed to produce consistent color reproduction. This new printer includes an upgraded, built-in color densitometer that offers precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and newly 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.
HIGH PRECISION MECHANICAL PLATFORM
The newly 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 new design.
L-COA PRO IMAGE PROCESSOR
The imagePROGRAF printers are powered by the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine. With three new 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.
NEW OPERATION PANEL
The 3.5", color, LCD touch-panel makes it easy to view printer information as well as perform commands easily.
PRINT FROM USB THUMB DRIVE
PDF and JPEG files can be directly printed on the imagePROGRAF PRO Series 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.
The PRO Series printers offer choices on how prints will be outputted based on the type and quantity being produced. Each comes standard with a multipositional basket that can be configured as any of the following:
• Catch basket
• Flatbed stacker
• Slope (used to display a print)
In today’s printing environment, it’s more important than ever to understand how much ink and media each print job is costing your business. Both Mac and Microsoft compatible, Accounting Manager serves as a powerful
feature to accurately manage print costs. You can now track the amount of ink and paper being consumed for large-format printing for up to 50 printers!
PRINT STUDIO PRO
Creating large-format prints is now easier with the introduction of Print Studio Pro for imagePROGRAF large-format printers. This software offers features that streamline your printing workflow.
• Ability to print multiple-up images
• Large preview screen
• Import multiple images and make batch edits that apply to all
• 16-bit printing workflow
QUICK UTILITY TOOLBOX
Quick Utility Toolbox is home to all the Canon PRO Series printer software and tools.
DIRECT PRINT AND SHARE
Sharing ideas has never been easier with Canon’s Direct Print & Share software. Direct Print and Share is a cloud portal and batch printing solution that helps you to expand your printing workflow. Included with the printer, this software allows you to upload documents to your account using any WebDAV compliant¹cloud service, and have these documents printed from almost anywhere. Easily share and/or print .cpfx PosterArtist, PDF, TIFF, JPEGs, and HP-GL/2 files, through the user-friendly interface. In addition, you can set-up hot folders on your desktop by clicking the Shortcut Print feature, then simply drag and drop the files you wish to print into these folders and the job will start automatically. You can even set up multiple folders, each with their own customized settings, allowing for multiple jobs to be run with ease.
