The four key colours (C,M,Y,K) are arranged symmetrically further improving the new print head, providing a good balance between high quality and fast printing. Practically poster quality can be produced at up to double speed compared to current imagePROGRAF 8-colour series models.
ACCURATE COLOUR CALIBRATION
Consistent colour reproduction is achieved between print jobs, compensating for any variation due to differences among printers or changes over time.
DUAL ROLL UNIT
The dual roll unit provides either additional paper roll or as a media take-up unit for printed output. Media take-up can be performed with the printed surface either on the inside or on the outside.
CROSS-PLATFORM SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS
The software bundled with the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S printer supports a wide range of large-format and advanced printing solutions, with features to optimise the efficiency of printing environments. More importantly, the software is fully cross-platform, supporting both Windows and Apple Macintosh computers.
RIGID PLATFORM FOR BEST QUALITY
All imagePROGRAF PRO series printers feature a brand new mechanical platform. The highly innovative chassis structure provides an exceptionally rigid frame that can maintain a precise distance between the print head and media – enabling highly accurate, reliable printing, over and over again.
A monocoque (integrated structure) is used in the printer unit to form a highly rigid frame, making it possible to maintain the distance between the print head and media, even if the printer oscillates or warps. This suppresses oscillation and shaking during print head scanning, and realises high-precision ink placement with little inter-colour discrepancy.
ADVANCED PRECISION PRINT HEAD
The imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S sports a fully integrated print head enabling even faster printing in 8-colours with exceptional print quality. A compact 1.28” wide head enables efficient, high-precision ink ejection without discrepancies. This new print head has a 3-chip configuration with four colours per chip in a single print head, and outputs 8-colour ink from a total of 18,432 nozzles. The new print head is wider than the current 1.07-inch wide print head, and enables even faster printing while still maintaining high print quality.
LUCIA PRO PIGMENT INK
LUCIA PRO pigment ink is newly developed for the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S to deliver printing with a wide colour gamut, excellent colour expression, superior dark area reproduction, low graininess and good gloss characteristics. Newly microencapsulated colour materials are used which increase the smoothness of the printed surface, thus reducing scattered light from the media surface, and enabling the inks to be spread even more densely on the media, which improves colour expression.
IMAGE PROCESSING ENGINE
The imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S features a re-designed processing engine: L-COA PRO. It combines the latest and most advanced Canon image-handling algorithms with a newly-developed application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for processing high volumes of high resolution images and data – delivering the very best print quality at high speed.
