This printer is loaded with smart features that can do everything from automate workflows, estimate printer ink costs, automatically detect the type of paper being used and more. Normally with large wide format printers you have to manually feed the paper into the printer and input the type of paper being used. The Canon imagePrograf Pro-6100 S eliminates that with Intelligent Media Loading. All you have to do is place the roll holder in the printer and the machine will automatically recognize the type of paper being used. This printer uses 8 ink color LUCIA PRO system and 12 channels that ensures high quality color reproduction, image clarity and richer colors especially in black areas of prints. Chroma Optimizer produces the deepest blacks for true dark area reproduction. It does this by adding a clear invisible coat onto the prints as they come out of the printer. The large print head(1.28” wide) with 18,432 nozzles ensures that printing will be fast and high quality, every time. Print up to 60 inches. This machine has FINE Technology enabled. What this does is eliminate clogs by detecting a clog and automatically switching to a different nozzle. This printer does not just eliminate clogs, it also eliminates wasted ink with Canon's Sub Ink Tank System which uses ink cartridges until the last drop. You can automate workflows with the included software that allow you to import images and make batch edits to all images and create layouts. If you want to manage print and ink costs, this printer comes equipped with a software that lets you do that easily. This printer has a 4.3” touch screen display and one touch buttons that makes printing easy. Lease this machine for only $233 a month. Warranty included.
