Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6400S

A powerful trio: color, control, and speed

Picture of Canon imagePROGRAF 6400S


The imagePROGRAF iPF6400S, 24" large format printer was designed for professionals in the commercial photography, signage display, reprographic and proofing markets that seek the highest possible standards for quality-control and image reproduction, while maximizing productivity. A large color spectrum is produced by the 8-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides scratch resistance and smooth gradations. Designed to support precise calibration and color matching, the new built in multi-sensor uses a three-color LED and an enhanced condenser lens, enabling accurate recalibration of the device. All the iPFx400S Series printers feature true borderless printing, helping to reduce the requirements needed for trimming and off-line finishing.

As an optional add-on to the iPF6400S printer, the SU-21 Spectrophotometer features a scan speed of up to 10 inches per second and can accommodate media of different thicknesses (Canon or non-Canon branded) thanks to the device’s mobile carriage which opens and closes automatically. The device attaches directly onto the front of the iPF6400S printer and includes a user-switchable UV blocking filter that can be switched on and off according to paper type, eliminating the need to purchase individual sensors. A Color Calibration Management System allows for color calibration targets to be created using the iPF6400S printer with optional spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400S 8-Color printers, while the included software allows for all printers on the network to be monitored from one central location.
