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.
The new LUCIA PRO ink set adopts newly 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 new ink set helps:
- Enhance red color performance
- Reduce graininess
- Enhance dark area reproduction
PF-10 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.
L-COA PRO High-Speed Image Processing Engine
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.
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.
Device Management Console
The Device Management Console software, ideal for fleet management, lets you perform color calibrations remotely. This software lets you monitor the printer status of up to 50 units from any location in the world, be notified via email when an error has occurred, or check the amount of ink left in the printers without ever having to leave the comfort of your desk.
