Canon USA announced the new SE Series imagePROGRAF large format solution lineup, designed for the poster and infographics markets. Consisting of the six-color 44-inch iPF8400SE Printer and 24-inch iPF6400SE Printer, the SE Series offers a cost-effective easy-to-use solution for on-the-spot in-house printing in retail, education and government industries.
“The addition of the new SE Series truly rounds out Canon’s robust lineup of large format printing solutions,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon USA. “Adding to the portfolios already expansive capabilities, the SE Series now reaches customers looking to print vibrant infographic-oriented posters at an affordable price.”
Canon’s six-color ink system utilizes LUCIA EX ink to help achieve the vibrant color reproduction required for output such as retail posters, while helping to ensure high-quality color printing. Featuring the traditional cyan, magenta, yellow, black and matte black inks, along with red ink, users can expand the color gamut beyond Canon’s imagePROGRAF eight-color models in the yellow to red regions. One printhead delivers six colors through six channels, delivering output from 15,360 individual nozzles. Additionally, the LUCIA EX pigment ink system helps to provide durable colors and scratch resistance for posters, POP materials, and other applications.
Using the fast printing mode, the iPF SE Series can print an A1/D sized poster on coated paper in approximately one minute. According to the company, the compact body design offers a small footprint for easy spatial positioning, and the hot-swap ink tanks allow the inks to be changed during printing without stopping the print job.
Canon also announced the addition of a new Heavyweight Coated Paper HG (145gsm) to its large format media offering.
