Graphic Arts Printers

The Canon imagePROGRAF 8400S

Overview

An extremely versatile solution, the 44” imagePROGRAF iPF8400S printer is ideal for those who need quality large format output and maximum productivity. Built for the commercial photography, signage display, reprographic and proofing markets, the iPF8400S printer delivers consistently superb results while increasing overall production. A large color spectrum is produced by the 8-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides scratch resistance and smooth 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. TheColor Calibration Management System allows for color calibration targets to be created using the iPF6400S printer with optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400S series 8-Color printers, while the included software allows for all printers on the network to be monitored from one central location. The iPF8400S printer is up to 40% faster than the 12-Color line of imagePROGRAF Graphic Arts printers, and achieves maximum productivity with large 330ml or 700ml ink tanks and a unique sub-ink tank system for replacing ink on-the-fly without stopping the printer. The iPF8400S 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.
